- Rochas Okorocha has lambasted Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state over his style of governance
- The former governor said that APC is dying in the state under Uzodinma's watch
- Okorocha, however, noted that the party may cease to exist in the state after 20223
Senator Rochas Okorocha, a former governor of Imo state, has said that Governor Hope Uzodinma is destroying the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
Punch reports that he said that he boycotted the APC southeast zonal stakeholders meeting which held in the Imo state Government House in Owerri because Uzodinma was indulging in “political jamboree.”
Legit.ng gathered that the senator who spoke through his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, on Thursday, December 31, said that Uzodinma was demarketing the party in the state.
“How many people did you see at the meeting? How many House of Reps members were there? Did you see Senator Rochas Okorocha, Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu and other leaders of the party there?
“It is almost one year since Hope Uzodinma became governor and he has not called any APC leadership meeting in Imo state. At the appropriate time, we will separate truth from falsehood. That meeting was a political jamboree."
He said Governor Uzodinma inherited a sound APC in Imo state, lamenting that the party is no longer breathing in the state.
"The truth of the matter is that APC only exists in government house in Imo state.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the former governor Okorocha said the race to occupy the governorship seat in Imo state in 2023 has not yet started.
It was reported that the senator disclosed this following what he described as a false claim from mischief-makers.
He noted that some people had alleged that he has commenced campaigning for his son-in-law, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, for the 2023 Imo governorship seat.
He gave the denial in a press statement issued by his media adviser, Sam Onwuemeodo.
