Okorocha meets Buhari in closed-door meeting

President Muhammadu Buhari is currently meeting with the Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Though the reason for the governor's visit to the villa is not known, it could be believed that it is not unconnected to the crisis surrounding the governorship candidate ticket of the APC in Imo.

It should be noted that ticket is being contested by Senator Hope Uzodimma and the governor’s son-in-law, Uche Nwosu.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the All Progressives Congress (APC) was standing firm on its position on Governor Okorocha, and is refusing to make a U-turn.

At a news conference in Abuja on Wednesday, March 27, the party’s national publicity secretary, Lanre Isa-Onilu, said no help could be rendered by the party to the embattled governor until the end of his suspension.

Legit.ng also gathered that there are reports that Rochas Okorocha of Imo, Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara, Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun and Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara are to be quizzed for alleged corruption by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as soon as they hand over on Wednesday, May 29.

It was also reported that Yari allegedly syphoned N500 million and $500,000 from the state treasury in 2017 which was part of Paris Club refunds. The funds were recovered from two firms said to have been linked to the governor.
