Final Betrayer! Okorocha Considering Dumping His Son-In Law To Endorse Ohakim Of Accord Party

As we draw closer to the gubernatorial polls slated for this Saturday Governor Rochas Okorocha is considering supporting Ikedi Ohakim of the Accord Party
This information was exclusively disclosed to Daily Sun by one of the governor’s closest aides who hails from Ideato North, Okorocha’s maternal home. He asked that his name not be used in this report.
According to him, Okorocha feels that he has put his legacy at great risk by backing his ambitious son-in-law Uche Nwosu to succeed him. The source stated that Rochas is blaming “Uche Nwosu’s vaulting ambition as being responsible for him losing his grip on Imo APC and earning the hostility of the national leaders of the party.”



This new development comes on the heels of APC’s suspension of the Imo state governor from the party amidst allegations that he resorted to duress to have himself declared winner of the February 23 senatorial election in Orlu, in addition to his battles with politician Hope Uzodinma.



When asked why the governor would prefer Ohakim to the other candidates, the source said: “Rochas wanted someone more dependable than the rest. He also wanted someone more humane and with executive political experience. 

Ohakim also comes with the appeal of one-term, which will give Rochas room to again be politically relevant in 2023.”Our source says that Okorocha’s last minute change of heart reflects that he now sees “Uche’s ambition as a sinking ship and he wants to jump the ship before it sinks.”He added that the governor was concerned about the public perception that resources of Imo State are being wasted on a “forlorn project that is now imperiling his entire family and his legacy.”

Meanwhile Following the suspension given to the Imo state Governor, Rochas Okorocha by the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Working Committee last week, the Presidential Support Committee, PSC, South East Zone, has given the APC committee 48 hours ultimatum to lift the suspension. According to the Presidential Committee, the suspension on Governor Okorocha came to it as a rude shock. 

At a press briefing in Owerri on Tuesday, the presidential committee condemned the suspension of Okorocha, saying the act was done by a cabal. It also wondered why the party would suspend what it described as one the ‘major financier of the party.” The presidential committee said the suspension was a ploy to disorganise Ndigbo ahead of the 2023 presidential election believed to be the turn of the zone to produce a president. 

The Presidential committee were led by the Director of Inter-Party Affairs, South East; Robert Ngwu, National Legal Adviser; Ejikeme Ugwu and Director, Political Matters; Comrade Maxwel Okoye.
