Presidential Election Shouldn't Be Used To Calculate The Result Of Governorship Election-Uzodimma

In a recent interview with Channels Television, Senator Hope Uzodimma, the Governor of Imo State, made a thought-provoking statement regarding the Nigerian political landscape. He firmly asserted that the outcome of the presidential election should not be used as a yardstick to determine the result of a governorship election. According to Uzodimma, it would be unwise for anyone to confidently predict the result based solely on the presidential election.

Note that, while the presidential election may indicate the popularity of a political party on a national scale, it does not necessarily reflect the sentiments and preferences of voters at the state level. The dynamics, issues, and aspirations of each state are unique, and factors influencing the governorship election differ from those affecting the presidential contest.

Uzodimma, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), further emphasized that his party, the APC, remains the party to beat in Imo State.

He said, “Presidential election in Nigeria should not be used to calculate the result of governorship election. Nobody should beat his chest to predict the result. APC is the party to beat in Imo State.”
