Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma , has alleged that his refusal to cover the corrupt activities of Senator Rochas Okorocha is the reason Okorocha is making the state ungovernable.
News Mail Nigeria reports that the Imo Governor said this in a statement released by his Media Adviser and Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Oguwike Nwachuku.
The statement also revealed that Senator Okorocha himself confirmed that Okorocha begged Uzodimma in a recent interview in Abuja.
“In an interview Okorocha granted a national newspaper on Sunday, he not only spoke like someone who has quit the All Progressives Congress but confessed that his grouse with Governor Uzodimma is borne out of the latter’s refusal to help him cover all the illegalities he was allegedly involved in as governor of Imo State for eight years.
“Apparently looking for ways to continue to undermine the APC and the federal government, Okorocha has descended on the Presidency, saying that President Muhammadu Buhari does not have clue as to the solution to the insecurity situation the country is facing currently.
“Okorocha also took a swipe at the leadership of the APC, alleging that they conspired to hold his result and certificate of return as well as outsourcing the party to members he called “outsiders”, he said.
“Poised to get at Governor Uzodimma by all means possible, Okorocha also confirmed in the said interview that he had directed his son In-law, Uche Nwosu, to return to the Supreme Court to reclaim his imaginary mandate, claiming that Nwosu won the March 9, 2019 governorship poll in Imo State and that neither Governor Uzodimma nor Ihedioha did.
“He acknowledged that Nwosu congratulated Governor Uzodimma and called him his leader when he was declared the validly elected winner of the election and governor of Imo State but quipped that, “this is all for peace go reign,” the statement added.
