Okorocha's aide asserted:

“A group known as Orlu Political Consultative Assembly (OPOCA), has told its audience that it was going to recall the senator representing Imo West senatorial district, Owelle Rochas Okorocha from the Senate.
“Those behind OPOCA are political undertakers who glory in absurdities, simply to enlarge their coast or make their leaking pockets fat. And not just for any meaningful venture, but for leisure and pleasure.
