Uzodinma berates Okorocha, reveals conditions given to him after he became governor
The Supreme Court Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma, said that his predecessor Rochas Okorocha outlined some conditions for him after he resumed office as the State governor.
Uzodinma noted that those conditions were behind his fallout with Rochas Okorocha, because of his refusal to abide by those conditions.
The governor maintained that Rochas Okorocha had asked him to dissolve investigation panels set up by the immediate past governor Emeka Ihedioha administration and to allow Dan Nwafor to remain chairman of APC in the State.
The governor made the statement while briefing some leaders of the All Progressives Congress at an enlarged meeting of the state caucus of the party at the Government House, Owerri, on Saturday where he stated that Okorocha made the request to pave the way for his ambition to run for the presidency in 2023.
He said, “There were two requests Okorocha made to me when I became governor. The first was to dissolve the panels set up by Ihedioha to probe his administration. I refused to grant the request because I think the mood of the Imo people was in support of the probe.
“The second request was to allow Dan Nwafor to remain chairman of APC in the State.
“I also declined that request and told him that the party rules were there to guide everyone on the matter.”
