– The rift between Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo and Adams Oshiomhole, APC’s national chairman, is getting wider
– Okorocha has slammed Oshiomhiole over bribery allegations supposedly linked to the party’s primaries in the state
– He alleged that the APC’s national chairman is an expert in falsehood and manipulation
Rochas Okorocha, the governor of Imo has berated Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), over the bribery allegation leveled against him, describing the chairman as an expert in falsehood and manipulation
Okorocha, in a statement signed by Sam Onwemeodo, his chief press secretary, said that he was not shocked at the allegation as a member of the party, Ahmed Gulak, had made the same allegation, Daily Trust reports.
The governor said: “In giving account of his encounter with the DSS, the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole once again took on Governor Rochas Okorocha, talking about how the governor offered him bribe and he refused and repeated his claim that he wants to stop the governor from building family dynasty.
“Alhaji Ahmed Gulak had one month after his kidnap tale also made the same allegation of two million dollars bribe which he said he also rejected. Our worry is that Comrade Oshiomhole and Gulak have decided to impugn on the intelligence of Nigerians with all these their latest accounts.
“On the side of Oshiomhole he has been telling the world that he wants to stop Okorocha from building a dynasty in Imo. And he only needed to be questioned by the DSS Personnel to remember that the governor offered him bribe and he refused.
“Do Gulak and Oshiomhole think that Nigerians are not intelligent enough to detach the truth from falsehood. These are partners in falsehood and they are on media campaign to cover up the mess they put themselves in Imo.
“To say the least, Adams Oshiomhole is the “father – father” of family dynasty or nepotism or “familiocracy”. Uche Nwosu is from Nkwerre Local Government, while Rochas Okorocha is from Ideato South LGA.
“They have no relationship aside the in-law issue. The only relation of Governor Okorocha who is in his government is Ogechi Ololo from Owerri North. She does not answer Ogechi Okorocha. There is no other direct or indirect relation of Okorocha in his government. So, as it stands now, Rochas is the only Okorocha running election.”
