- Governor Okorocha has been mocked over his defeat at the just concluded governorship/House of Assembly elections in Imo state
- Convener for an Imo state coalition said Okorocha’s greatest undoing was his attempt of brazenly foisting his son-in-law on the people
- The coalition urged the governor to prepare his handover note as well as march forward to ask God for forgiveness
The coalition of Imo state APC, known as allied forces, has commended Imo citizens for voting against Governor Rochas Okorocha's ambition at the just concluded governorship/House of Assembly elections in the state.
Vanguard reports that Theodore Ekechi, former commissioner for Information and convener for the APC coalition, alongside other members spoke at Imerienwe, Ngor Okpala local government area in Imo state.
Ekechi said Okorocha should quickly prepare his handover note as well as march forward to ask God for forgiveness, adding that Okorocha had failed because he rebuffed all the advice given to him.
Expressing how impressed his members have been, Ekechi said: “Diligently and dutifully, some of us who were close to him on the account that we worked in his administration, on numerous occasions, advised him against most of his anti people policies and openly counseled him against the syndrome of his self-exaggerated opinion of his popularity.
“But like the stubborn tsetse fly, he could only hear the voice of his even greedier, unforgiving and more ambitious spouse and therefore eventually ended in the grave along with the coffin.
“Probably, Okorocha’s greatest undoing was his laughable and nauseating attempt of brazenly foisting his errand-boy son-in-law who then doubled as his chief of staff as his successor, thereby reducing succession to a lowly, transmitted process.”
He described Okorocha’s actions as “an insult to the sensitivity of every sane Imo citizen."
According to him, every attempt made to get Okorocha to rescind his ambition to foist Uche Nwosu as governor was greeted with unmitigated disdain and rebuff.

"Consequently, it was a risk of a killing proportion that we convened and issued the March 7, 2018 Imerienwe declaration, where we articulated a historic and symbolic seven-point resolution. The Imerienwe Declaration remains the watershed in the struggle against impunity and ‘self succession’ bid. It shattered Okorocha’s infantile dream of a third term by proxy.
“True to our prediction Okorocha’s and his wife’s inordinate ambition of imposing their errand-boy son-in-law on Imo people, coupled with his rudderless leadership of perfidy and not paying attention to processes and proceedings expectedly cost the APC not just the governorship seat but also national assembly as well as state assembly positions," he added.
Recall that Legit.ng reported that Imo state residents were taking action into their hands and bidding their current governor, Rochas Okorocha, and his dynasty farewell in the most brutal manner.
Emeka Ihedioha of PDP was declared winner of the gubernatorial elections and emerged governor-elect of Imo state after polling 273,404 votes. While Okorocha's son-in-law of Action Alliance (AA) emerged second after polling 190,364 votes.
