IF the confidence of Emeka Ihedioha Campaign Organisation is anything to go by, the days of Governor Rochas Okorocha of the All Progressives Congress, APC, are numbered as number one citizen of Imo State. Chris Okewulonu, director general of the organisation, in an interaction with journalists in his office, said the organisation and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was ready to sack Governor Rochas and replace him with Emeka Ihedioha, deputy speaker, House of Representatives, at the governorship election on Saturday, April 11, 2015.
Okewulonu said the people of Imo State were poised to effect a change in the government of Imo State to stop the monumental fraud, deceit and lies of Okorocha. Okewulonu also described the government of Okorocha as darkness for the state. He reminded Imo people that the first public task of Governor Okorocha was his brief appointment as the chairman of the National Airspace Management Authority, NAMA, by former President Olusegun Obasanjo who also publicly and unceremoniously sacked him owning to a lot of irregularities that were linked to him. Okewulonu said it was unfortunate that Okorocha hoodwinked the people who believed he was sent from heaven and short-changed them by building mansions which he said were as big as the Buckingham palace all over the state in only three years of being governor.
However, Okewulonu urged the people of the state to vote for Ihedioha, whom he said, would rule the state with utmost respect for the rule of law and accountability, which he said was a deviation from the Okorocha’s style of leadership. He promised that every vote for Ihedioha would be for the rapid development of the state going by Ihedioha’s track record of competence and experience.
