Chief Egbendu Mgbewelu, the Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Elders’ Committee in Imo State, has warned the outgoing Governor, Rochas Okorocha and his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu on the dangers of bringing the presidency and the judiciary into the electoral disrepute in the state.
Chief Mgbewelu addressed reporters in Owerri on what he called the rash claims being made by Okorocha and Nwosu’s camps.
According to the PDP chieftain, ‘’The Okorocha and Nwosu’s camp are spreading the vile claims that they are working in cohorts with the presidency.
“And that the presidency has intervened on their behalf, by directing the judiciary to award Okorocha the Imo West Senatorial ticket, whatever the circumstances.”
The party chieftain warned that the claims and actions were bringing the judiciary and, indeed, the presidency into public odium.
“The fear of a rigged judiciary is overheating the Imo polity,” he added.
He urged the Presidency to disassociate its hallowed offices from the Okorocha-Nwosu desperation to upturn the law and institute ‘’the rule of self interest.’’
