Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial district, Victor Umeh yesterday blasted Imo Governor Rocha’s Okorocha, describing him as a trickster and threatened to expose him for describing him as a non-performing lawmaker.
Briefing the Senate press corps on Wednesday, the lawmaker expressed regrets for supporting Rochas Okorocha when he was Chairman of APGA ten years ago.
According to him, Imo governor’s attempt to impeach his current Deputy, Chief Eze Madumere who might be the second to be impeached showed Okorocha as a bad leader.
Umeh revealed that Imo governor began attacking him because he advised him not to impeach Madumere having impeached his first Deputy, Chief Jude Agbaso during his first tenure.
“Rochas Okorocha is about making history in Nigeria as the only Governor that impeached two deputies and because I advised him against impeaching the current one, he started attacking me.”
“I regret supporting him to become a governor of Imo state against all odds”, he said.
“I didn’t know he is a trickster and a ‘419” who found his way into office through fraud and deception.”
Recalled how Imo governor declined honouring agreements with other party stalwarts from the state who ensured his success, he said, Okorocha turned himself into a tiger and attacked all of them.
He said that he personally signed agreement that brought Okorocha to power, but later saw that the governor was a trickster, adding that he has to leave him.
The lawmaker accused Okorocha of attacking religious leaders and elder statesmen, threatening that he will publish his fraudulent transactions if he continues vituperations against him.
“Here is a man who was answering ‘yes sir’, ‘yes sir’ to me, even in the presence of my Police orderly who has been working with me in the last thirteen years.”
“On getting to office, he suddenly changed, became a tiger and was attacking everybody. I have documents of some of his fraudulent practices and if he continues attack on me, I will publish them”, Umeh noted.
