Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District, Owelle Rochas Okorocha seemed quite excited after he beat the deadline for the APC presidential screening and subsequently appeared before the Presidential Screening Committee ably headed by Chief John Odigie-Oyegun on Tuesday night, 31st May.
KanyiDaily recalls that the former Imo State Governor on 24th May, Tuesday was forcefully arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after several hours of resistance at his Abuja residence over alleged N2.9Bn fraud and he was on the verge of missing out on the screening due to his inability to secure bail on time.
However, a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Tuesday, May 31, granted him bail to the tune of N500million with one surety in like sum.
Okorocha obviously rushed down for the presidential screening which was expected to end yesterday, May 31st and successfully got screened to contest in the party’s primaries come June 6.
A clip shows Rochas smiling and shaking hands with committee members after he arrived for the screening exercise.
