Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has taken on National Chairman All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Adams Oshiomhole, over the bribery allegation levelled against him, describing the chairman as an expert in falsehood and manipulation
Mr Okorocha, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Sam Onwemeodo, said that he was not surprised at the allegation as a member of the party, Mr Ahmed Gulak, had made the same allegation.
He said, “In giving account of his encounter with DSS, Oshiomhole once again took on Okorocha, talking about how the governor offered him bribe and he refused and repeated his claim that he wanted to stop the governor from building family dynasty.”
“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 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 wanted to stop Okorocha from building a dynasty in Imo. And he only needed to be questioned by 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, Oshiomhole is the “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 inlaw issue. The only relation of 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 government.”
