Don’t Drag Abbas Into Your War Against Me, Ugochinyere Tells Uzodimma

Member of the House of Representatives, representing Ideato North, South Federal Constituency of Imo State, Hon. Ikenga Ugochinyere, has cautioned the governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodimma, against dragging the National Assembly into the issues he has with him.

Ugochinyere’s caution came on the heels of news report indicating that Uzodinma, and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Tajudeen Abbas, were headed for a showdown, with the former accusing the latter of promoting Ugochinyere to undermine him and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State.

Uzodimma is said to be unhappy with Abbas for allegedly encouraging and promoting Ugochinyere, who is a member of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), by appointing him as the chairman of House Committee on Petroleum (Downstream).

In a statement on Wednesday, Ugochinyere described the report as a failed attempt at intimidating the Speaker of the House to begin to take instructions from the Governor of Imo State.

While demanding a retraction of the statement from Uzodimma and an apology to the parliament, the lawmaker lamented that the newspaper publication tried to undermine the integrity and privileges of the parliament.

Ugochinyere said, “My attention has been drawn to newspaper reports obviously sponsored by the Imo State Government aimed at violating the privileges of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Tajudeen Abbas. Hope Uzodimma is now preaching loyalty to President Tinubu, this is the same President Tinubu, Hope Uzodimma promised to disgrace and spent huge resources financing Senator Ahmad Lawan in the failed childish attempt to disgrace at their party Primary.
