Governor Rochas Okorocha Claims Oshiomhole Pushed Him Out Of His Office
Outgoing Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, who incurred the wrath of the APC and Adams Oshiomhole is still at war with his party. And the war seems to have taken another dimension as Okorocha has claimed that Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, once sent his DSS detail to insult him.
According to Okorocha, he had gone to interact with his party Chairman about issues relating to happenings in the party when Oshiomhole sent his DSS personnel to push him out of his office. He also said the APC governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom State, Ekere Nsima, was present when the incident occurred.
Governor Okorocha, however, said he was not interested in leaving the ruling party, for now.
“I am APC. I have never thought of leaving the party for now and I have no reason because I won under the platform of APC. Where will I go to? I have to be in the APC, I formed the APC.”
When he was asked if he was stranded due to his estranged relationship with the leadership of the party, he replied: “I am not stranded, I remain in APC and I have not indicated that I’m going to leave APC. Remember that the intention of these people is to frustrate me out of politics and out of APC, so that they can have a field of play. But all I advise today is that let no institution or organization allow themselves to be used as an instrument to destroy somebody politically, who has committed no offence.”
It is possible that Okorocha may run into Oshiomhole someday, what will his reaction be? “We will chat as usual. What will I do to him? The last time I saw Oshiomhole was when I went to his office and he sent his SSS man to insult me in his office, before the governorship candidate of Akwa Ibom, the NDDC guy, Obong Nsima Ekere, who also reacted against the gentleman. An SSS was pushing me out as a governor from his office. So, I’ve taken enough insults from Oshiomhole and all those that are planning this evil.”
