Okorocha To Madumere, Others: Apologise Before It's Too Late

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State on Monday asked his impeached deputy, Eze Madumere; a former speaker of the state House of Assembly and serving senator, Benjamin Uwajumogu; his brother-in-law, Chuks Ololo; former secretaries to the state government, Jude Ejiogu and George Eche, to apologise to him to prevent misfortune in their political careers.

Okorocha who spoke during the swearing-in of new permanent secretaries and new secretary to the state government, chief of staff, and deputy chief of staff at Government House, Owerri, accused politicians of betraying him.

He also questioned how Madumere, Ejiogu, Eche and Ololo got N22.5m each to purchase the APC nomination and expression of interest forms for governorship, saying that they had no money before they served under his administration.

Okorocha said “Tell Madumere, Ejiogu, Ololo and Eche to come back and apologise to me before they crash. Tell them to come back so that I may bless them. They had no dime before they came into this government. How did they get the N22.5m to buy APC governorship forms?”
