During a news conference on Wednesday in Abuja, Okorocha said: “There is nothing personal between me and Adams Oshiomhole other than the fact that he is part and parcel of this high level of conspiracy to bring down Rochas politically.
“What is painful is that Adam Oshiomhole that I literarily put into this position.”
“I never asked him (Oshiomhole) to do me any favour, all I requested was for him to do what is right. The fact that he would turn around to do this evil is totally unacceptable.”
Okorocha’s grievance with the leadership of the ruling party started in the build-up to the last general election when his anointed candidate Uche Nwosu lost the Imo State governorship candidate ticket to Senator Hope Uzodinma.
Unsatisfied with the party’s candidacy, Okorocha campaigned for Nwosu who defected to Action Alliance (AA) to emerge governor but lost.
Okorocha, on the hand, contested the Imo West Senatorial District election on February 23 and was declared the winner of the election.
But the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) refused to acknowledge his victory because the returning officer Innocent Ibeabuchi said he announced the result of the election under duress.
The outgoing Imo State Governor believes the INEC chairman is up to a game with the chairman of the APC, who is being used to frustrate his effort in becoming a senator.
