Former national chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and Senator representing Anambra Central senatorial district, Chief Victor Umeh has fired back at the Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, calling him a trickster, dishonourable 419er, who became tiger after becoming governor and now fighting the people who helped him realize his dream like the late Idi Amin of Uganda.
The senator said this in a video where he addressed Senate Press Corps on Wednesday in response to Okorocha describing him as a non-performing lawmaker.
He said that Okorocha was attacking him merely because he advised him as a younger brother and as someone who made his governorship possible against impeaching his deputy, Eze Madumere.
Okorocha’s attempt to impeach his current deputy, Chief Eze Madumere, who might be the second to be impeached was an indication that Okorocha is a bad leader, Mr Umeh said.
He regretted that the Imo state governor would be doing this to man who had worked with him for over ten years and was in fact imprisoned for three weeks during the struggle to make Okorocha governor.
Mr. Umeh likened Okorocha’s desire to foist his son-in law, Uche Nwosu on Imo people as the next governor, just because he married his daughter, to the behaviour of late Uganda’s Idi Amin, who had ruled his country according to his whims and caprices rather than what was good to his people.
The former APGA recounted with sadness how Okorocha, who was answering him “yes sir” to become governor under his party, changed, reneged on his many promises and turned Imo State to his family state. He however reminded Okorocha, who he described as a “drowning man” that he lives to face the music when his tenure ends in ten months time.
