- Some aggrieved members of the APC in Imo state have expressed happiness over the defeat of Uche Nwosu, Okorocha's son-in-law by the PDP
- The leader of aggrieved APC members in the state, T.O Ekechi, urged APC to expel Okorocha for making the party lose the state
- Ekechi, however, advised the governor-elect, Emeka Ihedioha, to avoid what he described as banana pills that led to Okorocha’s fall
Some aggrieved members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and former aides to Governor Rochas Okorocha, have expressed happiness over the defeat of Uche Nwosu by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Emeka Ihedioha, during the March 9, governorship election in the state.
The Independent reports that the group urged Okorocha not challenge the outcome of the governorship election to prevent a violent protest by the people of the state against his government.
Legit.ng gathered that they also demanded the immediate expulsion of the governor from APC, alleging that he made the party to lose the governorship and other elections in the state.
"Okorocha has no moral justification to challenge the outcome of the governorship election in court since such step may exacerbate the fury of the badly injured people of the state," the group said.
Addressing journalists in Imerienwe Ngor-Okpala local government area of Imo state, the leader of the group, T.O Ekechi said: “Okorocha’s greatest undoing was his laughable and nauseating attempt of brazenly foist 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.”
The group also warned the governor-elect Emeka Ihedioha to avoid what it described as banana pills that led to Okorocha’s fall.
“If the incoming governor consults our group, we will provide a compendium of Okorocha’s activities that led to his down fall.
“Certainly, this was an insult to the sensitivity of every sane Imo citizen. Every attempt made to get Okorocha to rescind his Uche Nwosu hallucination was greeted with unmitigated disdain and rebuff.
"By this time last year, Okorocha who now lost the people’s support remained foolhardy and a shadow of himself," the group added.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo said there was a plot to cripple him politically ahead of 2023 and that’s why he was denied his certificate of return as senator-elect for the Imo west senatorial district.
He made the comment while speaking with newsmen at the Imo governor’s lodge in Asokoro, Abuja, on Thursday, March 14.
It was reported that Okorocha said the gang-up against Uche Nwosu, his son-in-law and candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) in the 2019 governorship election in Imo, was part of the plot.
