The Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has accused the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Emeka Ihedioha of impersonating him.
Okorocha stated this on Tuesday during a press release through his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, in Owerri.
In the statement release, the Imo State Governor was displeased by the recent actions of the Governor elect, reminding him that he is still in charge of the affairs of the state as embedded in the constitution.
Okorocha who criticized the two committees set up by Ihedioha stated that it is a sign that they lack vision about what governance entails.
“Owelle Rochas Okorocha is the governor of Imo State as we write and for Chief Emeka Ihedioha to be acting as governor and conducting activities meant for a sitting governor is impersonation. And he should be advised to maintain certain level of decorum or decency.”
“In less than 30 minutes after the reported fire incident at the Imo Airport, Ihedioha rushed to the airport to inspect damages caused by the fire and also issued directives to the management of the airport. Did he do that in his capacity as what? Is he the governor of the state?”
“Again, for Ihedioha to set up what he termed transition technical committee of 139 members and that of the governorship inauguration committee of 323 members shows that he does not even know what the governing of a state is all about. He, therefore, needs some tutorials in that regard.”
