The immediate past governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has alleged that his successor, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, assembled chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to abuse him during the 40th Ahiajoku lecture on Saturday.
Okorocha, who is now the lawmaker representing Imo West in the Senate, stated this in a statement issued by his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo.
The former governor advised Ihedioha to face governance and stop abusing him, saying that the whole thing was becoming nauseating.
“Ihedioha is governing Imo State with a stolen mandate. Since then, he has never slept with his two eyes closed. He has remained haunted by that electoral mishap.
“What happened in Owerri on Saturday was not Ahiajoku Lecture but a get-together by the PDP bigwigs and they were assembled by Governor Ihedioha to abuse the former governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, the APC and the Party’s leadership at all levels.
“All those who attended the event including Fani Kayode, Chief Chidoka, Chief Peter Obi, Prof. M. Echeruo, Governor Udom Emmanuel etal, are all PDP chieftains. So, it was the first get-together of the Party after the elections, in the South-East. And they did nothing else than to abuse Okorocha, APC and other leaders”.
According to Okorocha, Ihedioha’s major achievement in the past seven months was the constant abuse of himself (Okorocha) “because he is cowed or intimidated by Okorocha’s existing achievements. He can’t cope and has no other option than to resort to abuses”.
