The crisis within the Imo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress APC seems not to be abating as chieftains of the party in the state are calling on the National Leadership of the party to expel the state Governor Rochas Okorocha from the party.
The stakeholders which comprise Senators Hope Uzodinma, Ifeanyi Ararume, Osita Izunaso, Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, Hon. Mike Ohia and Hon. Austin Chukwukere. among other in a petition said the APC must ‘rid itself of this incorrigible worm’ referring to the governor.
“As our party chairman, kindly bring to the notice of our dear President that should the governor in his megalomania procure further violence in his child like tantrums, a state of emergency in Imo State would be a natural consequence.
There’s no other state that the president visited five times to appeal to its people and yet we wobbled. Our party must rid itself of this incorrigible worm, he is indeed a cankerworm.
“This attempt to drag the state into further violence in the face of a non-existent state assembly only points to the complete breakdown of an already non-existent governance for which the state of emergency envisaged in the Section 305 of our Constitution is to be declared,” the petition read.
