GOVERNMENT OF IMO STATE
GOVERNOR ROCHAS OKOROCHA ORDERS FOR THE ARRAIGNMENT OF MEMBERS OF THE CONGRESS COMMITTEE ARRESTED OVER THE MISSING SENSITIVE MATERIALS FOR IMO APC WARD CONGRESS
- ALSO CHARGES THE CP TO ENSURE THE ARREST & PROSECUTION OF MR INI OKORI WHO WAS AT THE CENTRE OF THE STORY OF THE MISSING MATERIALS
Following the missing of the Sensitive materials for the Saturday, May 5, 2018 Ward Congresses of All Progressives Congress, APC, in the State, the governor and Chief Security Officer of the State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has directed the Commissioner of Police in the State, Mr. Chris Ezike to charge members of the Congress Committee arrested in connection with the missing materials to Court without delay preferably on Monday, May 7, 2018.
The governor also charged the Police in the State to set every machinery in motion for the arrest and prosecution of the man at the Centre of the ugly incident, Mr. Ini Okori, who escaped at the residence of the National Organizing Secretary of APC, Chief Osita Izunaso.
The governor equally expressed regret over the dishonourable role of Senator Izunaso who was not able to divorce his local and personal Political interests or pursuits from his official responsibilities as the National Organizing Secretary of a National Party like APC.
The governor noted that if not that he played his role as a governor and as a father, to manage the situation, the unfortunate role of these people would have thrown the State into a very big crisis which nobody would have been in a position to imagine its outcome.
He remarked that, for the Organizing Secretary of the Party Chief Izunaso to be arguing with Mr. Ini, originally sent for the conduct of the Congresses, over who among themselves, was in custody of the Congress sensitive materials in question was quite despicable. And it showed they never wanted the Congress to be successful abinitio.
It is also important to point out here that those who never believed that APC had prospect at the initial stage and who called Governor Rochas Okorocha all sorts of names including Alhaji in Government House and Okoro-Hausa must not be allowed to disturb the peace of APC in the State.
The governor reiterated his appeal to members of the Party in the State to remain calm and ensure peace and assured that the anomalies would be corrected and the Ward Congress in the State, will hold accordingly.
