‘I Know Exactly Why Gov Ihedioha Wants To Destroy Me’ – Okorocha
Senator Rochas Okorocha who governed the Southeast state of Imo from 2011 to 2019, says he understands why his successor, Governor Emeka Ihedioha, is hell-bent on destroying all of the ‘good work’ he left behind.
Ihedioha and Okorocha have been locked in a battle for supremacy of some sort since the former succeeded the latter on May 29, 2019.
Ihedioha has wasted little time tearing down Okorocha-era statues and monuments, amid widespread allegations that the nation’s anti-graft agency, EFCC, has been dispatched after the former Imo governor on Ihedioha’s orders.
“The Governor Emeka Ihedioha-led PDP government in the state is simply fighting back because of the defeat they suffered in 2011 and 2015 in the hands of Senator Rochas Okorocha”, the senator who represents Imo West in the upper legislative chamber, says in a statement released on his behalf by his spokesperson, Sam Onwuemeodo.
The senator also adds that Ihedioha and his political party PDP “are also playing the politics of how to remain in power in the state having known that they didn’t win the 2019 governorship election because before now, nobody had become the governor of the state with bloated figures from only three out of the 27 local government areas in the state.
“For them too, having known that Imo remains the stronghold of APC in the South-East, they now feel that once APC is destroyed in Imo, the party has been destroyed in the Southeast.
That is another major reason for the current hostility against Okorocha, his amazing achievements and APC members in Imo.”
