So, according to an official Press statement, Senator Osita Izunaso and Chief Hope Uzodinma have settled their differences in the interest of the PDP Party. Who would thought these two Politicians would ever be caught embrasing each other after dragging themselves to court over the PDP Party ticket for Orlu Senatorial Zone.
Senator Izunaso lost the ticket to Chief Hope Uzodinma at the Primaries and took the matter to Court. LOL! Who wouldn’t? I know would…. anyway with the bitter exchange of words, name calling etc…. I’m certain the citizens of Imo State had braced themselves for the worst. So who was the “Man of God” that intervened? It was none other than our incumbent State Governor. His Excellency, Ikedi Ohakim. Speaking to the crown at the Orlu campaign grounds, this is what His Excellency had to say “‘’ I called Osita and told him to go and withdraw the suit against his brother and he obliged me. I want to say that three days ago, Osita withdrew the suit! He showed that he is a true democrat and a pride of our state. It was a concession many will not make, but Osita did it knowing that the future is still ahead. I thank him for that”
For peaceful but curious citizens like me who are wondering “how far” with Senator Izunaso’s Court case, the Case has been withdrawn in the interest of the PDP Party.
If you think this is a “PR Stunt”, you are on your own. I don’t know how many Politicians would readily concede in a situation like this so, I commend Sen. Izunaso for taking this bold step. I am all for Peace and Unity. Enough of the blood shed, assasinations and all in the name of POLITICS… life is too short.
