Imo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has advised Senator Rochas Okorocha, a former governor of Imo State to resign as a Senator representing Imo West.
The state chairman of APC, Hon Macdonald Ebere stated made the call in a statement signed by Cajetan Duke, the Publicity Secretary of the party in the State.
According to the party: “Imo people have had enough of Okorocha and his family, who they consider as unfit to occupy any public office in Nigeria anymore given their poor and dismal performance in the State.
“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.”
