Former Governor of Imo State, Sen. Rochas Okorocha, has been asked to resign his position as a Senator representing Imo West in the National Assembly.
Naija News reports that the Imo State chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), accused Okorocha of incompetence and failing in his responsibilities in representing his senatorial district in the senate.
The state chairman of APC, Hon Macdonald Ebere stated this in a statement signed by Cajetan Duke, the Publicity Secretary of the party in the State.
Ebere said in the statement that Imo people have had enough of Okorocha and his family, who they consider unfit to occupy any public office in Nigeria anymore.
Naija News reports that the party also accused Okorocha of trying hard to rubbish the image of Governor Hope Uzodinma.
Ebere said if the senator truly has incriminating evidence against the governor, he should report such to the police and not go live on media to give ‘false’ claims.
The statement reads further: “Our party condemns without reservations the futile attempt by Senator Rochas Okorocha to vilify the Governor, Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodinma on Arise Television interview with wild claims, accusations and allegations filled with hate and vehemence.
“Instead of presenting himself as a good ‘Presidential material,’ Okorocha is busy carrying on in a brazen manner, marring his chances, rubbishing himself by trying to tarnish the image of Governor Uzodinma with fabricated lies, unsubstantiated accusations and fabrications like the alleged Hope Strike Force.
“We are aware that Okorocha is a master of Ostrich politics and grandstanding, which he used to deceive Imo people for eight locust-infested years but this time he has failed.
“Indeed, if Okorocha has serious or incriminating evidence against Governor Uzodinma, we thought the best place to report to is the Police and not mass media.
“For the umpteenth time, Gov Hope Uzodinma has stated that he has nothing personal against Okorocha but only bent on actualizing the mandate of the people,” Ebere noted.
The party further called on Okorocha to refrain from his distractions and allow Governor Uzodinma to focus on delivering good governance to Imo people.
