The former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, says he will continue to pursue his legitimate ambition of  becoming the governor of Imo State in 2019 on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, against all odds.

Ihedioha, in a press release signed by his media aide, Mr. Chibuike Onyeukwu, on Friday, stated that “the orchestrated malicious blackmail by the agents of some desperate governorship aspirants’’ in the state cannot stop his ambition.

The release said that his interest to become the next governor of the state had continued to receive unprecedented enthusiasm and grass roots support by the entire people of the state.

Southern City News however, gathered that one of the things being said about him was that he (Ihedioha) was boasting of single-handedly installing Chief Uche Secondus as the PDP National Chairman, who it was also said would  assist him in achieving his governorship ambition.

The release read in part, “This is yet another failed attempt to impugn the character of the former Deputy Speaker and create frosty relationship between his good self and leading Nigerian politicians within and outside the PDP.

“Knowing the antecedents of these opponents, who are proven agents and allies of the All Progressives Congress, we expected this flurry of attacks, which indeed has been their age-long trademark. We are not surprised.

“It is, however, important to put the record straight that Emeka Ihedioha will remain a loyal and committed leader of the PDP, who will operate within the dictates of the provisions of the PDP Constitution, as well as the electoral guidelines, set by its relevant organs and importantly the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“Ihedioha will continue to pursue his legitimate ambition to provide good leadership for the good people of Imo State which, interestingly, has continued to receive unprecedented enthusiasm, grass roots support and wide acceptability.

“Attempts, through a wave of their falsehood  and propaganda, to smear his reputation and relationship with Nigerians will, by the grace of God, remain an effort in futility.”
