Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has stated that he is the landlord of the All Progressives Congress in his state and the entire southeast region.
He said this in a statement released to debunk rumors of a defection to Social Democratic Party, SDP.
Below is the statement signed and issued to journalists in Owerri by the Chief Secretary to the Governor, Sam Onwuemeodo.
“The known fraudsters in Imo politics who have sneaked into Imo APC have come up with the cheap and unfounded rumour of Governor Rochas Okorocha and Ugwumba Uche Nwosu leaving APC for SDP. Their first claim was ADC.
“Like we had intoned, this baseless rumour was manufactured by these fraudsters and been marketed by their agents on the social media.
“Nobody builds a befitting house and abandons it for those who are facing criminal charges for issuance of Dud Cheques and failure to declare their assets.
“Rochas Okorocha is the LANDLORD of Imo APC in particular and that of the South-East in general. And he has the onerous task of ensuring that those recruited to destroy the Party in the State and indeed in the South-East do not have their way”.
