AA guber: Okolienta alleges threat to life….Goes into hiding

The top contender in the governorship seat of Imo State on the platform of Action Alliance, AA Party, Sir Leonard Uzoma Okolienta has alleged that anonymous persons have been calling and threatening him over his refusal to hand over his ticket to Ugwumba Uche Nwosu.
Sir Okolienta who disclosed this to National Newsbreak in a telephone interview from his hiding place stated that no amount of threat and inducement can make him abandon his dream of governing the state. The ex-banker reveled that his Campaign Organization called Ego Erugo has began massive campaign and that soon his campaign posters will be flooded at strategic places in Owerri the state capital and other parts of the state.
He made it known to our reporter that his ambition is divine and at the prompting of God he will come out from his hide out to continue visits to Leaders and people of the state in all the wards and local governments in a bid to make them see reasons of voting him in as the governor come 2019.
“My brother for now I am hiding for my dear life, the threat calls-from anonymous persons became so much and the spirit of God told me to go underground and out of circulation for a while. One thing is certain, Imo State is for all of us and no one person can arrogate to himself the Powers of owning the State and therefore no threat or financial inducement can make me drop this dream of making Imo a financially viable state in Nigeria.
Let me also tell you that this call to the service of my state is divine, the time has come for Imo people to enjoy the abundant blessings of God to them and I am the vessel God intends to use to actualize this.
Soon our posters will be everywhere in Owerri, Orlu and other parts of the state we are not resting and whenever God instructs me to resurface and continue from where I stopped our campaign visits to leaders, people wards and local governments in our state I will do so.
Bear in mind that our resolve to bring Imo out of the woods can’t be halted by anybody no matter how hard they try” he concluded.
