The immediate past governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has said his successor, Emeka Ihedioha, assembled the governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel; former ministers of Aviation, Osita Chidoka and Fani Kayode; and other chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party in Owerri on Saturday during the 40th Ahiajoku lecture to abuse him.
Okorocha, in a statement by his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, described the event as a gathering of the PDP members.
The statement said “Chief Emeka Ihedioha is governing Imo State with a stolen mandate. Since then, he has never slept with his two eyes closed. He has remained haunted by that electoral mishap.
“What happened in Owerri on Saturday was not Ahiajoku Lecture but a get-together by the PDP bigwigs and they were assembled by Governor Ihedioha to abuse the former governor, Rochas Okorocha, the APC and the party’s leadership at all levels.
“All those who attended the event including Fani Kayode, Chief Chidoka, Chief Peter Obi, Prof M. Echeruo, Governor Udom Emmanuel, etc are all PDP chieftains.”
