Govern Or Quit, PDP Challenges Okorocha

The Imo state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has advised the state governor Rochas Okorocha, to govern the state or quit his office.

The statement was made by a former publicity secretary of PDP, Eny­innaya Onuegbu, on Sunday, during an interview with newsmen in Owerri.


The party alleged that the governor had abandoned his responsibility as governor, leaving the business of government in the hands of his son-in-law, who is his chief of staff.

It was learnt that Okorocha was more interested in his personal business as he allegedly embarked on un-official trips across the country.

The chieftain said: “A situation where the governor abdicates his office and prefers junketing from one state to the other, promoting his personal politi­cal ambition, leaving the running of the state to his son-in-law, who is his chief of staff, is unacceptable to the people of the state.

“Okorocha is running Imo like a sole ad­ministrator of a private business. Five months into his second term, there is no state execu­tive, no advisers and more worrisome is that the House of Assembly has been more on re­cess than on legislative business.”
