Greg Okey Nwadike (GOC) has explained why he dumped his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, and joined Gov Hope Uzodinma’s All Progressives Congress, APC.
Nwadike, via his verified Twitter handle, urged Ndimo to vote for Mr Uzodinma during the Nov 11 2023 guber poll in the state to enable the governor to continue his good strides in the state.
He condemned ‘blind’ opposition party practice in the state, adding that his stint in the PDP blinded him from appreciating Uzodinma’s transformation agenda.
Nwadike tweeted that, “Opposition blocks one’s brains; it bedevils one’s imaginations. All you keep breeding is hate; and wishing the one in power failure. You are practically turned into a sadist; even to your fellow party members. Hate, infighting, sadism run in their blood.”
He said Gov Uzodinma had developed many parts of the state beyond expectations, and urged Imolites to vote APC during the Nov polls. According to him, candidates of various political parties in the state are not capable of solving the problems of the state, adding that it is only Mr Uzodinma that has the capacity.
Quoting him, “It even surprises me that my eyes are just opening to see some of these beautiful roads with complete furniture constructed by Gov Uzodinma. Drive from Owerri to Orlu, from Owerri to Okigwe, from Owerri to Mbaise and going to Umuahia.
“Haba! We all knew the states of those roads about three years ago. It baffles me today that being in opposition completely blinded my eyes from appreciating Gov Uzodinma when he eventually fixed that road.”
He described those not supporting Uzodinma as ‘witches and wizards’. In his words, “It’s only witches and wizards that do not appreciate good things, and I am not a witch. My current support for Gov Uzodinma is to enable him to do better. He has so far shown to be a good listener.
“We shall continue to feed him
with positive suggestions on tackling other challenges in Imo State, especially on how to bring permanent peace in the state.”
Nwadike called for collective efforts in tackling insecurity in the South East. He further commended Gov Uzodinma for playing a unifying role in uniting Ndigbo with other.ethnic nationalities in Nigeria.
He tweeted, “Insecurity today is a general problem in the entire South-East. We all must come together to fine a better end to it. There’s no need therefore at this stage to try another hand, especially when none of the opposition parties today in Imo has any candidate that’s capable of proffering solutions to our problems.
“And that was partly why I left PDP. The party, with the choral candidates it’s parading, has no capacity to make Imo peaceful. You don’t give what you don’t have. Any vote to them would amount to taking Imo back to Egypt. It is not safe at this juncture to change the goalpost in the middle of the match.
“Come November 11, we shall support Gov Hope Uzodinma for another four years to enable him to complete most of the projects he had already awarded, including the Orlu/Ideato road that not even Okorocha could fix.
“He is already championing peace initiatives among Ndigbo and our Yoruba neighbours. With our collective supports, he shall achieve same in Imo State because he listens. Imo will again return to the peaceful state it used to be.”
