Alleged Corruption: Igbo Youths Condemn Okorocha’s Arrest

The kinsmen of the former Governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha, have commenced plans to recall the Imo West Senator from the National Assembly.

Naija News gathered that Okorocha's kinsmen, under the platform of Orlu Political Consultative Assembly (OPOCA), have started mobilizing across the 12 council areas of Imo West to recall the ex-governor.

It was learned that major stakeholders in the zone comprising the traditional rulers, Elders' Council and the 12 Interim Management Committee (IMC) Chairmen presiding over the 12 LGAs in the Orlu Senatorial District (Imo West), openly met last Monday to endorse the recall process.

The action was muted during a consultative meeting involving OPOCA, led by Rex Anunobi; Orlu Council of Elders, led by Chief Bernard Anyanwu: the 12 IMC Chairmen, led by Hon. Willie Okolieogwo, who is also the Imo ALGON Chairman, and the Orlu Zonal Council of Traditional Rulers, under the leadership of Eze Emmanuel Okeke of Amaifeke Ancient Kingdom.

The stakeholders upon deliberations issued a 6-point Communiqué unanimously endorsing the recall of the former governor over what they described as "poor representation, gross misconduct occasioning public embarrassment to Orlu people, Imo people and indeed the state government".

The leadership of Orlu Political Consultative Assembly (OPOCA), led by its National President, Chief Rex Anunobi, had briefed the stakeholders on recent political developments in the state as regards the many untoward actions of Senator Rochas Okorocha, his alleged wanton looting of the state and other actions capable of exposing Imo and its people to public ridicule.
