Victor Umeh, the Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial district has lampood Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, Senator Umeh stated that Rochas had in 2013 spearheaded the impeachment of his first deputy, adding that there must be something wrong with the governor as he could not be the only ‘Mr Right” all the time.
Senator Umeh was reacting to the Impeachment process being undertaken against the Imo Deputy Governor, Eze Madumere over his refusal to cooperate in installing the Governor’s son-in-law as next Governor of Imo State.
Senator Victor Umeh further asked God for forgiveness over the role in the emergence of Rochas Okorocha, as the Governor of Imo State in 2011 on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance.
Describing Okorocha as an evil who had become an island unto himself, Umeh said the governor had become “a pain in the neck of his people.”
Umeh, as the APGA national chairman in 2011, led members of the party to Imo State and after giving the party’s ticket to Okorocha, campaigned for him and he won.
Okorocha, however, dumped APGA and joined the All Progressives Congress.
Speaking during the inauguration of “Senator Victor Umeh Support Group” at Neni in the Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State ahead of the 2019 general elections, Umeh wondered why Okorocha should be desperate to instigate the impeachment of his deputy, Eze Madumere.
The senator recalled how Madumere worked so hard to ensure the success of Okorocha as governor of the state.
He said, “Madumere was even detained because he was fighting for Okorocha, only for the governor to want to impeach him because the governor wants his son-in-law to be governor of the state.”
Governor Okorocha was in the centre of controversy when a faction of Imo State APC, including his deputy rejected the imposition of his son-in-law as the next Governor under the All Progressives Congress, APC in Imo state.
