Acting Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Ebonyi State chapter, Pastor Eze Nwachukwu Eze, has faulted the statement credited to Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State against Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, Minister of Science and Technology, describing it as noisy rantings and insult of the highest order.
In a statement , Eze noted that Okorocha’s antecedents hardly placed him in a position to judge others in delivering democracy dividends to the people.
“Imo State, the reference point of non-payment of salaries to workers, alleged fraudulent projects, and calculated deceit of the masses under Okorocha cannot be in a position to discuss a man who is widely acknowledged as a development icon and bastion of the peoples ‘confidence.”
He went on to assert that Onu’s two years as governor of old Abia witnessed more dividends than the almost six years of Okorocha’s governorship of Imo State.
Eze accused Okorocha of fuelling crisis in Ebonyi APC in his bid to force himself on
Ndigbo as its leader.
“How can a man, who cannot control his backyard, wants to control others?”he queried.
Eze alleged that Okorocha sent his deputy speaker, Ogonna Ozurigbo, to Ebonyi to recruit members to his new party as was evident in their meeting holding under a mango tree when APC Ebonyi has a massive two-storey building as their office.
He opined that Onu had empowered a lot of people as minister across party lines, saying: “We are proud of his efforts and history will always judge between him and Okorocha, who indeed is truly representative of the people.”
