Senator Rochas Okorocha has been described as “an internally displaced politician” by the government of Hope Uzodinma.
Okorocha, a former governor of the state, had on Thursday alleged that Uzodinma is working against the interest of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Okorocha claimed that APC is no longer breathing in the state since Uzodinma became the governor.
But in reaction Uzodinma, in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Print Media, Modestus Nwamkpa, said Okorocha was working to destroy the APC before he dumps it for another party.
The statement said Okorocha is angry because under the watch of governor Uzodinma watch, APC has gained more grounds in the South-East.
It read in part, “Okorocha is a sinking man. He is an internally displaced politician. He is angry that under Governor Hope Uzodinma, APC is gaining more grounds in the South East, including the entry of Governor Dave Umahi into the party.
“I am aware that Okorocha wants to leave APC and his plan is to destroy APC before he joins another party but we will not let him have his way. Okorocha ruled Imo State for eight years with small boys and did what he liked with the state.
“Throughout Okorocha’s reign as governor, he never called any stakeholders meeting for APC but Governor Hope Uzodinma in less than one year has been strengthening APC in the state and in the entire region.”
