Governor of Imo state,  Hope on Sunday said that he would rather quit politics than spill blood to win elections (in 2023) expressing disatisfaction with spate of violence in the country

While lamenting what he described as “contrived insecurity” by desperate politicians, he insisted that Nigerian leaders must always act in good conscience.

Uzodinma, who made history with the 2019 governorship election after the Supreme Court nullified the election of then incumbent governor Emeka Ihedioha, stated these in an interview with journalists on the sidelines of the first plenary of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigerian in Abuja.

He said, “I don’t belong to the class of politicians that will encourage violence. I don’t belong to the class of politicians that will spill blood (to win elections). I will rather prefer not to be a politician than to be an instrument of violence. If you recall the history of elections in Nigeria, it has always been greeted with anxiety in the beginning.

“But as we make progress, the anxiety comes down and the people also come out to follow the electoral timetable as provide by INEC.

“The only aspect that is different is the contrived insecurity that is now taking lives and all sorts of banditry and kidnapping. Evil is bad and stands condemned. We should shun violence in all its ramifications and embrace the rule of free, fair, and conducive environment for everyone.

“I invite my colleagues, political leaders and the entire political elite to tow the path of good conscience and fear of God in all they do and say, because that is only what we need to attract the mercy and forgiveness of God.”
