In a statement released over the weekend, the women leader, Theresa Ohanuha, warned Oshiomhole not to enter the state. According to the women, Oshiomhole's actions are some of the reasons Imo State experienced low turnout in the presidential election. They called on President Buhari to call Oshiomhole to order.
“These actions of Oshiomhole negatively affected the outcome of the recent presidential election in Imo. The suspension of the Imo West senator-elect, Governor Rochas Okorocha, on the basis of anti-party activities is unacceptable. We are sure that Mr. President is not aware of these events. We, the APC women in Imo State, respectfully appeal to Mr. President to call Oshiomhole to order.” the statement in part reads
