Sen Okorocha has reacted to a statement credited to Gov. Ihedioha of Imo State describing the Sen Okorocha as a man who rode on the popularity of an essentially Igbo party to beguile Imo people but who turned out to despise everything the Igbo hold dear.”
Okorocha has urged the governor to face politics and governance and stop attacks on his personality saying that the whole thing was becoming nauseating.
Speaking during the 2019 Ahiajioku Lecture on Saturday, Ihedioha described the former governor’s two tenures as ‘year of locust’.
The former governor, whose statement was issued by his media adviser, Sam Onwuemeodo, said the reason Ihedioha was always complaining about his administration was because “Ihedioha is governing Imo State with a stolen mandate. Since then, he has never slept with his two eyes closed. He has remained haunted by that electoral mishap.
“What happened in Owerri on Saturday was not Ahiajoku Lecture but a get-together by the PDP bigwigs and they were assembled by Governor Ihedioha to abuse the former governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, the APC and the Party’s leadership at all levels.
