The Imo State government has accused the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, and a former deputy speaker of the House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha, of sponsoring the spokesperson for Conference of United Political Parties, Ugochinyere Imo, against the state governor, Hope Uzodinma.
This accusation was made at a press conference at the government house in Owerri by the state commissioner for information and strategy, Declan Emelumba on Friday.
He said the allegation made by Ugochinyere that Uzodinma hacked into the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission to manipulate the voter registration data was mischievous.
He therefore called on security chiefs to immediately arrest the CUPP spokesperson for “false accusation against the state governor.”
The commissioner said that investigation carried out by the government, revealed that PDP was behind the insecurity in Orlu to discredit the state government.
He stated that the opposition party was not comfortable with the successful hosting of president Muhammadu Buhari in the state and commissioning of projects executed by the state governor.
