Osinbajo Moves to End Imo State Crises.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has made moves to intervene in the political crisis engulfing Imo state.
Osinbajo held a closed-door meeting on Wednesday, with the Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District and former Governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Senator Okorocha has been involved in a political feud with his successor and fellow member of the All Progressives Congress, Governor Hope Uzodinma, in recent times.
Okorocha, who spoke to state house correspondent shortly after the meeting, noted that “The whole thing to me sounds like a movie, a joke, a dream that does not reflect any practical reality, but I am a father, I’m a leader of that state, and I am trying to make sure things don’t escalate beyond control.
“But for what has been done to me, I am human; I can bear it just for peace to reign.
“I am still waiting to understand why all the attack because before the allegation, the money used in t building was government money.
“Now, it has changed; it is no longer the issue of government money, but that it is built on the green verge and allocation where Government House was supposed to be built. I am still waiting, and only time will tell.
“But let it be known that I was Rochas Okorocha before Governor, and I am still Rochas Okorocha after Governor.
“Government House never made me. I was who I was, before becoming Governor. Rather, I would say that becoming Governor was a sacrifice on my own part.”
Okorocha further said, “But talking about the properties in question, the schools, the East High College, Rochas Foundation College, the Royal Spring Palm Hotel and the university, these outfits are all charitable outfits for the Rochas Foundation.
“And I brought them back home as a sign of investment to encourage investment in my own state, where I come from.”
Recall that Senator Rochas Okorocha had earlier said that the incumbent Governor, Hope Uzodinma, attacked him out of “hatred and vendetta.” This followed the incident of his arrest by the incumbent Governor and the demolition of part of his building housing a radio house.
