Acting Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Ebonyi State chapter, Pastor Eze Nwachukwu Eze, has slammed Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State over a recent statement credited to him where he attacked Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, Minister of Science and Technology.
The party described Okorocha’s utterance as noisy rantings and insult of the highest order.
In a statement, Eze noted that Okorocha’s antecedents hardly placed him in a position to judge others in delivering democracy dividends to the people.
He said, “Imo State, the reference point of non-payment of salaries to workers, alleged fraudulent projects, and calculated deceit of the masses under Okorocha cannot be in a position to discuss a man who is widely acknowledged as a development icon and bastion of the peoples ‘confidence.”
Eze observed that Onu’s two years as governor of old Abia witnessed more dividends than the almost six years of Okorocha’s governorship of Imo State.
He further accused Okorocha of fuelling crisis in Ebonyi APC in his bid to force himself on Ndigbo as its leader.
“How can a man, who cannot control his backyard, wants to control others?” he queried.
Eze further alleged that Okorocha sent his deputy speaker, Ogonna Ozurigbo, to Ebonyi to recruit members to his new party, as was evident in their meeting which held under a mango tree, when APC Ebonyi had a massive two-storey building as their office.
“We are proud of his efforts and history will always judge between him and Okorocha, who indeed is truly representative of the people”, he added.
