Governor Rochas Okorocha said that he won’t allow the Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole to eat his cake and still have it.
The Imo State Governor stated this through a release to newsmen in Owerri by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo.
According to Okorocha in a statement, “We won’t allow Oshiomhole to eat his cake and still have it. And we start this way:
“Adams Oshiomhole was governor in Edo State for eight years. Rochas Okorocha has been governor in Imo for less than eight years. We challenge Oshiomhole to publish his achievements in Edo State for the eight years he was governor and let Rochas publish his own achievements in Imo in less than eight years and let Nigerians judge who failed as governor.
“If Oshiomhole fails to accept this challenge, we won’t have any other option than to conclude that he is just a noise maker.
“Oshiomhole has been talking and working to fulfill his own part of whatever deal he has with Chief Hope Uzodinma. He is acting his own part and in doing that, has thrown caution to the wind.”
“I expected the chairman of a party who came for the campaign of a governorship candidate of his party would have used the opportunity offered by the event to market the candidate. But in this case, Oshiomhole talked about Governor Okorocha and carefully skipped talking about the candidate because he knows where the problem lies with the candidate.
“All the media reports on what Oshiomhole said at the rally were all about Okorocha. He consciously avoided telling Imo people why they should opt for Uzodinma at the poll in 2019 or why he chose him as the guber candidate of the party in the state.”
Recall that Oshiomhole visited Imo state last week for the campaign flag-off ceremony of Imo APC governorship candidate, Senator Hope Uzodimma, where he accused Okorocha of anti-party activities among other allegations.
