•Uju Rochas Anwuka.

 Mrs. Uju Rochas Anwuka, second daughter of Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, “and the entire family” have rejected her appointment into the Board of the Federal College of Education (Technical), Omoku, Rivers State.

Angered by the appointment, Okorocha and his wife, Nkechi, on Friday berated the Federal Government over the issue, describing it as suspicious and unfair.

Okorocha in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, said the appointment of Uju, who is the wife of Minister of State for Education, Prof. Anthony Anwuka, was without his knowledge and not done in good faith.

The statement reads: “The attention of the governor has been drawn to the publication listing one of the daughters, Mrs. Uju Rochas Anwuka, as a member of the Board of the Federal College of Education (Tech), Omoku.

“And it is important to swiftly state, with every sense of concern, that the governor had read about the appointment like every other Nigerian because he was never consulted or briefed on the appointment and that is why the whole thing looks suspicious.

“To the governor, the appointment was obviously not done in good faith. Whoever was the brain behind the appointment did so out of unbridled mischief. Otherwise, the person behind the appointment would have had the courtesy of either informing the father or the mother.”

“The truth of the matter is that the governor’s daughter does not need the appointment. The governor has therefore asked whoever was behind the appointment to withdraw it since the daughter would not have needed the appointment, even if he had not become governor.

“Indeed, the governor has the feeling that whoever was behind the appointment did it with something else at the back of his or her mind, otherwise the person would have acted well his or her part by informing him or the mother or even the daughter herself. The daughter and the entire family reject the appointment.”
