*Says Imo Gov Is A Big Talker, Not A Political Maradona.
Former Imo State Governor, Ikedi Ohakim has tongue lashed his predecessor, Rochas Okorocha over the latter’s dismal failure in the ward and local government congresses of the All Progressive Congress, APC in Imo State.
Okorocha was rattled by the Allied forces in Imo APC losing the 27 local governments and 305 wards in the State.
According to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary Collins Ughalla, he said the outcome of the ward congress of the ruling party in Imo State has shown he is a total failure, a big talker and not the political maradona he claims he is.
“By the recorded statements of the principal actors in the charade that congress materials were missing and officials detained at govt house and the police station, and going by our own independent monitoring of the congress, there is no doubt that the ward congress did not hold. The Governor was humiliated and embarrassed to the point that he went knocking on the door of the National Organizing Secretary of the party in search of congress materials. How did we come this low?
“Governor Okorocha has confirmed that he is incapable of organizing people and resources to achieve a common goal. He has shown he is a total failure when it comes to governance. He has shown that he is not what he had claimed to be and that he became Governor by fraud. He has shown that he is only a big talker and that not the political Maradona he said he was” statement stated.
The former Governor described Okorocha’s boycotting of the local government congress as a confirmation of his incapability of organizing people and resources to achieve a common goal. He said boycotting the local government congress is the greatest sign that of failure and defeat of the Imo Governor.
“Boycotting the Local Government Congress today is the greatest sign of failure and defeat by Okorocha. That Okorocha who behaved as if he owned the state and party is now the the person organizing protests and boycotting party congress is the conformation that he is capable of leading, that his becoming Governor was by accident and gang-up sustained by falsehood and fraud.
“We saw all these developments coming and we had always told Imo people that Okorocha became Governor by fraud and it is obvious he has been served in his own cup. Imo people should therefore know that those who are now fighting the Governor were those who lied to them in 20011 and 2015 and put him there for selfish reasons and brought the state to this shameful state. They are part of the problems in the state because they created this monster that has become a bull in a China shop. The needful thing to do is make sure none of these people gets elected in 2019” Ohakim said.
