Okorocha a bad loser, confirms begging Uzodimma to cover his misdeeds

Former Governor of Imo State and now Senator representing Imo West, Rochas Okorocha is yet to come to terms with what has hit him, that makes him a bad loser.

He has just realised that he cannot eat his cake and have, hence he is taking on everybody – the Presidency, APC leadership, the Supreme Court, the Security Agencies and of course, Governor Hope Uzodinma – in a fruitless wolf crying exercise.

In an interview Okorocha granted a national newspaper on Sunday, he not only spoke like someone who has quit the All Progressive Congress but confessed that his grouse with Governor Uzodimma is borne out of the latter’s refusal to help him cover all the illegalities he was allegedly involved in as governor of Imo State for eight years.

Apparently looking for ways to continue to undermine the APC and the federal government, Okorocha has descended on the Presidency, saying that President Muhammad Buhari does not have clue as to the solution to the insecurity situation the country is facing currently.

Okorocha also took a swipe at the leadership of the APC, alleging that they conspired to hold his result and certificate of return as well as outsourcing the party to members he called “outsiders.”

Governor Uzodimma had said severally that Okorocha was fighting his government and instigating crisis in Imo State because he refused to accede to his request to disband all the Panels of Inquiries he inherited from Emeka Ihedioha’s sacked government that were looking into Okorocha’s activities as governor.

Poised to get at Governor Uzodimma by all means possible, Okorocha also confirmed in the said interview that he had directed his son In-law, Uche Nwosu, to return to the Supreme Court to reclaim his imaginary mandate, claiming that Nwosu won the March 9, 2019 governorship poll in Imo State and that neither Governor Uzodimma nor Ihedioha did.

He acknowledged that Nwosu congratulated Governor Uzodimma and called him his leader when he was declared the validly elected winner of the election and governor of Imo State but quipped that, “this is all for peace go reign.”

Governor Uzodimma spoke on Monday when he received Dr. Jonathan and his team at the Sam Mbakwe Executive Chambers shortly before they went to commission a private health facility – Aihwa Hope Centre – built by an indigene of the state, Rev. Kenny Udunka in Owerri. Governor Uzodimma appreciated the gesture of calling on him and described Dr. Jonathan as a peaceful man and a beacon of good governance. He added that the former President’s visit to Imo State though not on a working visit shows his love for the people, the state and a partner in progress. He further assured him of the readiness of the state to accord him warm reception anytime and appealed that from time to time the former President should visit the state and access the level of development going on by his administration. In his reaction, Dr. Jonathan expressed happiness over the sudden warm reception and eulogized the Governor for his commitment towards changing the face of Imo state for the better. He charged the governor to remain unwavering in his determination towards the development of the state and encouraged politicians in the state to eschew politics of hate. He also urged the governor’s appointees to help him in making the state a better place for all. At the commissioning ceremony of Aihwa Integrated Clinic along Sam Mbakwe International Airport, Owerri, both Governor Uzodimma and Dr Jonathan harped on the need for a health facility in the state in particular and the country in general that will put a stop to incessant medical tourism embarked upon by Nigerians. They lauded Rev. Fr Udumka for the foresight in attracting the facility to Imo State and urged the citizens to patronize the centre. Governor Uzodimma specifically pledged government support by way of creating an enabling environment that will enable the centre function optimally. Earlier in his welcoming address, Rev. Fr Udumka thanked the governor as Chief Host and Dr Jonathan as Special Guest of Honour, as well as other special dignitaries, including some first class traditional rulers from different parts of the country who graced the occasion.
