Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has tasked the Comrade Adams Oshiomhole led All Progressives Congress (APC) not to arbitrarily substitute the name of Senator Hope Uzodinma, the winner of the originally accredited governorship primary poll conducted by an erstwhile presidential adviser, Alhaji Ahmed Gulak to suit the selfish bidding of governor Rochas Okorocha who is fighting tooth and nail to railroad his son-in-law Uche Nwosu as his successor next year.
Besides, the Rights group has lampooned the governor of Imo State Mr Rochas Okorocha for seeking to convert the state to his family business empire by seeking to use the back doors to impose his son-in-law Mr Uche Nwosu as his successor against the overwhelming will of the people of Imo State who are opposed to the personalisation of government positions.
HURIWA challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to demonstrate that he is not a supporter of impunity by ensuring that the real winner of the first governorship primary conducted by Ahmed Gulak, Senator Hope Uzodinma is sent to the Independent National Electoral Commission as the APC candidate in the forthcoming governorship poll.
The group said it was laughable that the Imo State governor is actively depleting the scarce resources of the state to supplant his son-in-law as governor; make himself a Senator and his wife as a Member of the Federal House of Representatives as if to say the state has become his family business asset.
In a statement by the national coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, HURIWA affirmed that the hierarchy of All Progressives Congress (APC) would do harm to the principles of transparency, accountability and integrity should the national chairman allow himself to be blackmailed into dropping the authentic winner of the governorship primary election in Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma for the hand picked choice of the governor and his son-in-law who is expected to cover up any traces of alleged financial indiscretions of the current Imo State administration for the last eight years.
