Okorocha: Apologise or risk recall, group tells ex-gov

Rochas Okorocha

The Orlu Political Consultative Assembly (OPOCA), a political body in Orlu Senatorial District of Imo, has advised former governor Senator Rochas Okorocha to apologise to Imo State Government for breaking government’s seal on a property.

The group made the demand at a conference in Owerri and threatened to recall Okorocha from the National Assembly if he failed to apologise to the state.

OPOCA national president Rex Anunobi said that Okorocha behaved in a way unbecoming of a former governor and a senator when he allegedly led some persons to break a property sealed by the state government.

“The OPOCA, after an extraordinary emmergency meeting, is using this opportunity to give the former governor and Senator representating Imo West in the National Assembly, Rochas Okorocha, 48 hours from today to apologise to Gov. Hope Uzodimma for the shame his recent, but uncivilized action has brought to the state.

“If after 48 hours, Okorocha fails to apologise to our governor and Imo people, OPOCA will be left with no option, but to initiate a recall process that will aim at existing Rochas Okorocha from the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” the group said.

It also called on incumbent governor Hope Uzodimma not to be distracted by what it called the antics of the former governor, but fully activate all instruments of the law and state powers to recover all that were allegedly looted by Okorocha, his family members and associates in Imo.
