Former Governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha, Monday, accused Governor Hope Uzodinma of running a government “with APC in name, but PDP in structure and actions”
Uzodinma had at an APC stakeholders meeting on Saturday, accused Okorocha of demanding the abolition of panels of Inquiry set up by former Governor Emeka Ihedioha, to probe his eight years in office.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Sam Onwuemedo, Okorocha took a swipe at Uzodinma accusing him of not doing anything to show he is of APC
“The government in Imo as we speak or as we write is APC in name, but totally PDP faction in structure and in actions. The governor has not done anything to show he is of APC and that his government is Camphope government made up of those who were with him in his own faction of the PDP”
He said after Uzodinma’s inauguration as Governor in January 2020, “the Governor made his appointments of 106 people including Commissioners.He never deemed it necessary to bring in at least one known APC member in the State to make the list.
“The man he appointed Secretary to the State Government, Chief Cosmos Iwu, junior brother of the former INEC Chairman, Prof Maurice Iwu, is a PDP member and was also in the same position during the previous PDP government in the State. His Chief of Staff, Chief Nnamdi Anyaehie was the State Chairman of his own faction of the PDP in the State. The man he gave Adams Oshiomole to be made the Chairman of the caretaker committee of APC, Chief Marcellinus Nlemigbo, was one time Chairman of PDP in the State” part of the statement reads
