Imo Former Governor Rochas appeals for integration into Governor Uzodinma’s government

The Senator representing Imo West at the National Assembly, and former governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha has appealed to the Hope Uzodinma-led government of Imo State to put the past behind and fully integrate him in the new government, positing that APC in the State is now a large family.
Senator Okorocha made the appeal while addressing the people of Okigwe North recently at Anara Central School Field during a campaign rally organized for the APC Candidate for the Okigwe North Federal Constituency’s rerun, Miriam Onuoha coming up this Saturday.
African Parliamentary News recalls that then Governor Rochas Okorocha in his quest to install his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu as his successor, had moved for the removal of the then State Chairman of APC in Imo, Hillary Ekeh and rooted for Uche Nwosu’s loyalist, Dan Nwafor.
The crisis later led to the appointment of Marcon Nlemigbo led Caretaker Committee by the national Working Committee of the Party. Okorocha who was then Governor, refused to recognize the Nlemigbo led Caretaker Committee which produced Senator Hope Uzodinma as the APC Governorship candidate while Dan Nwafor produced Uche Nwosu.
In making his appeal, Senator Okorocha noted that the APC has not fully resolved the problem as that may continue to brew cold war between the governor and his (Okorocha’s) boys. He asked that the APC under the authentic chairmanship of Prince Mercilinus Nlemigbo run an open door government that will incorporate his numerous boys.
According to him, “APC is now a very large family. Although, we know that we still have some areas we need to mend fences, what is important is that APC family has won an election.”
He added that everything will be taken care of in the course of time, calling on members to rally full support for the new governor.
