Gulak Accuses Okorocha Of Corruption

The chairman of the committee in charge of the All Progressives Congress (APC) 2019 Imo State governorship primaries, Ahmed Gulak has accused Rochas Okorocha of attempting to buy off the process.

Gulak in a fresh accusation, alleged Okorocha offered him a bribe to ensure the result of the primaries ended in favour of his anointed candidate, Uche Nwosu.

Gulak claimed he was offered $2 million to ensure the victory of Nwosu at the primaries but he rejected the bribe in order to protect his integrity.

Speaking on details of what transpired between him and Okorocha, Gulak said: “I have no regret of any action I took during the primaries I conducted in Imo State. I don’t expect Okorocha to be happy with me, and I did not go there to make him happy anyway.

“I went there to do my job and I did it to be best of my knowledge and ability and I came notwithstanding the tempting offer I refused. I can walk the streets of Imo state including Owerri with my shoulders high.

“I may not be perfect as a human being but I did not go there to make him happy. Somebody who offered me up to $2 million to give certificate of return to his nominee but I turned it down.

“How many people can turn such offer down. I would have given him the certificate and pocketed my money because it is money that you don’t go to court for but my conscience will not be clear. For now, my conscience is very clear. I can move the streets of Owerri unmolested,” he told Daily Sun in Abuja.

However, in his reaction, former governor Okorocha who is now a Senator of the federal republic of Nigeria described the claims by Gulak as outright lies.

He said Gulak is an enemy of democracy that should be jailed.

Speaking through his media aide, Sam Onwuamedo, Okorocha said Gulak was only trying to cause confusion in Imo state and the APC by his claims.

“We showed a video of what he did when he came to Imo State. It is laughable he is talking about bribe. Nobody can say Okorocha has ever given him or her bribe , so it can’t start with a character like Gulak. He is looking for ways to launder his battered image. He has already destroyed his reputation beyond repair.”
