ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS
ROCHAS ILLEGAL INVASION OF GOVERNMENT RECOVERED AND SEALED ROYAL SPRING HOTELS OWERRI: THE ZINETH OF IBERIBERISM AND OFEONYESHIERISM
The leadership of All Progressives Congress, APC Imo State chapter received with consternation the illegal and provocative invasion of government recovered and sealed Royal Spring Hotel located at Akachi road, owerri, on Sunday 21st February, 2021 by Senator Rochas Okorocha and his team of armed thugs.
It could be recalled that the state government led by His Excellency Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma, had earlier sealed the aforementioned hotel cum estate, following the recommendations of Justice Florence Duruoha Igwe led Judicial Panel of Inquiry into the illegal allocation, acquisition and conversation of public assets to personal uses as constituted by Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha.
In compliance to the recommendations of the panel, for the immediate recovery of all government looted assets in private hands, governor Uzodimma in keeping with his 3R mantra of Rehabilitation, Recontruction and Recovery swiftly moved into action for the recovery of all identified government properties. Regrettably, Okorocha, a former governor and seating lawmaker, who ought to know better the tenants of the law, in primitive recourse to self-help, mobilized gang of armed hoddlums and forcefully gained entrance into a hitterto sealed premises of the Spring Palm Hotel.
The Imo State government, led by the ever responsive and pragmatic governor Hope Uzodimma, as the Chief Security officer, of the state and acting in accordance with the law swiftly moved the security agencies to forestall the eminent breakdown of law and order, as well as arresting the culprit-in-chief Owelle Rochas Okorochas alongside his gang of hoddlums for illegal trasspass and threat to public peace.
As a responsible organization, Imo APC condemns in entirety the nefarious and despicable act of a seating federal lawmaker and a former governor. It is condemnable and absurd that Okorocha in his usual proclivity to disobedience to rule of law and disrespect for constituted authorities, did challenge the office of Executive Governor of Imo State. Using Rochas Okorocha’s coinage, we consider this rascality and impunity as the zenith of IBERIBERISM and OFEONYESHERISM!
It is unfortunate and regrettable that Okorocha has continued to carry himself as a man perpetually above the law, even after office as a governor. We recall his inglorious reign of lawlessness and abuse of office in the state. A man who is a world record holder in disobedience to court orders and judgement.
We consider the incident very unparliamentary, barbaric, provocative, unpardonable and an affront to the sensibilities of ndi Imo and wish to call on Rochas Okorocha to desist forthwith or face the disciplinary actions of the party, as we will not tolerate from him any further conduct that brings the image of our party into public ridicule and contempt.
Finally, we hereby reteirate our unflinching support and solidarity to the Shared Prosperity administration, while urging the governor, His Excellency Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma to remain resolute to his promises to Ndi Imo especially, the RECOVERY of all looted common wealth of ndi Imo.
APC… Everywhere you go!
Everywhere you go…. Hope is the governor!!!
