Governor Rochas Okorocha:Nepotism Personified
What more to expect from him?
Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State is the true definition of Nepotism after President Muhammadu Buhari in contemporary Nigeria politics. Both rulers belong to the cult of disingenuous elite who sees Nigeria as a business run for the benefit of family, friends, associates and other mundane human classifications but go about mouthing the development and unity of Nigeria.
Governor Rochas is striking in most ways. His bizarreness, spontaneity and love for being on the spotlight are out of his world. He always emerges 1st position from the class of infamy. These can explain why he has ignited yet another hysteria barley few weeks the one generated by his statue unveiling is about to die down.
Governor Rochas Okorocha has been helping himself to the purse of Imo State Government by creating money siphoning portfolios for his friends, family and associates.
The Chief of staff of Imo Sate government House, Hon. Uche Nwosu is married to the Governor first daughter. Uche Nwosu is believed to have been picked by the Governor to replace him come 2019. This is evident in the media hype of Mr. Nwosu‘s personality in recent times. Mrs. Maria Ude Nwachi (Afikpo Chic)- Member representing Afikpo North East Constituency in the Ebonyi State House of Assembly and Founder of the most popular Facebook group for Igbo people- Igboist, received a cash give away of 5.5 million naira during the Governor’s 55th birthday three month ago to launder Governor Okorocha’s image and that of his son-in-law Uche Nwosu on Social Media. Afikpo chic has since been making posts in the group with Mr. Uche Nwosu’s picture, sharing money(Mula as she calls it) .
Her Excellency, Nneoma Nkechi Okorocha the Governor’s wife is the chairman of Imo State Amnesty programme. The Amnesty program has a budget of five billion naira.
The minister of state for education, Prof. Anthony Anwuka is the governor’s in-law. Mrs. Uju Anwuka the governor’s daughter and member of ministry of education is married to Prof. Anwuka’s son, Uzoma.
Jude Okorocha, younger brother the governor is the chairman in charge of all the money from Laterite excavation, sand dredging and other related matters in the state.
Mrs. Geraldine Obinali the governor’s eldest sister is in charge of market fees and fines in the whole state.
The list continues, there is hardly anybody in the governor’s cabinet that is not a close associate and like minded person.
The puzzle lies on the house of assembly that passes such nominations and the populace that allows this to continue. In sane societies, Imo people should have closed down Owerri in Protest against this wickedness and culture o f waste.
