Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has debunked report of his alleged defection plans, adding that he is the LANDLORD of Imo APC in particular and that of the South-East in general.
Okorocha stated this in a release he issued through his Chief Press Secretary Sam Onwuemeodo and availed Daily Nigerian Horn.
The release reads:
“Barely 48hours to the submission of the Governorship and House of Assembly Candidates to INEC by Political Parties, the known fraudsters in Imo politics who have sneaked into Imo APC have come up with the cheap and unfounded rumour of Governor Rochas Okorocha and Ugwumba Uche Nwosu leaving APC for SDP. Their first claim was ADC.
“Like we had intoned, this baseless rumour was manufactured by these fraudsters and been marketed by their agents on the social media.
“Nobody builds a befitting house and abandons it for those who are facing criminal charges for issuance of Dud Cheques and failure to declare their assets. Rochas Okorocha is the LANDLORD of Imo APC in particular and that of the South-East in general. And he has the onerous task of ensuring that those recruited to destroy the Party in the State and indeed in the South-East do not have their way.
“With the facts on ground, Uche Nwosu is the only one that has a valid claim to make with regard to the question of who is the governorship Candidate of APC for Imo State. And nobody would expect such a person to leave the party for someone who has nothing tangible to hold unto. Those who are still in doubt about what the situation should be in the case of Imo APC, should read INEC’s decision on Ogun State PDP Candidates’ list.
“For the cock and bull story of SDP or ADC, people should disregard such weightless and unfounded social media creation. There is no cause for alarm”.
