For declaring his party’s faith in winning Abia State from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 2o15, the State Governor, Theodore Orji has said his Imo counterpart, Mr. Rochas Okorocha is suffering from “acute malaria.”
Orji, who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Charles Ajunwa, cautioned Okorocha not to fritter his state’s resources “on his imaginary Vice – Presidential ambition”, but deploy state funds “on projects that will benefit the ordinary man.”
Okorocha drew Orji’s ire over his deputy’s, Eze Madumere, assertion, Thursday, that the All Progressives Congress, APC, would take over the reins of government in the state in the next election. Madumere spoke at a parley of the party’s South East Chapter in Umuahia, the capital of Abia.
Orji rejected the claim, saying that “Imo people are still regretting their mistake of 2011 when he was voted into power under false pretence as a political messiah, which he has proved not to be.”
Orji’s spokesman asked Mr. Okorocha to stop deceiving himself “because South-east has no space for you and your APC in 2015.” He added it would soon dawn on Okorocha that “he has travelled deep into a political wilderness accompanied by sycophants who will soon desert him.”
