The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Imo State, has told security agencies to hold Governor, Rochas Okorocha responsible should there be breakdown of law and order in the state.
Convener of APC Stakeholders Forum in Imo State, Theodore Ekechi said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN.
Mr. Ekechi condemned the spate of protests allegedly sponsored by the governor, describing such action as “senseless,” adding that the sustenance of such senseless protests with Imo tax payers’ money “portends very grave danger.’
He asked Mr. Okorocha to respect his office and stop engaging in activities that could demean “The Office of the Governor.”
Ekechi said, “We wish to draw the attention of security agencies and the general public to the spate of senseless protests which we believe are being sponsored by the governor of Imo.
“We particularly draw attention to the sponsored protests of 17th and 23rd of May, at the APC headquarters and by hired miscreants against our coalition and Sen. Osita Izunaso in particular.
“From the conduct of the so called protesters, it was self-evident that they did not even know why their services were procured.’’
