The party chieftains also asked that Governor Rochas Okorocha is expelled from the party, adding that for the party to be repositioned to win the Southeast in 2019, it must get rid of Governor Okorocha.
The stakeholders said, “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 childlike 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”.
They also thanked the National Working Committee of the party “for standing firm to the rules and guidelines of our party and upholding our duly conducted and video recorded congresses across our State, in spite of the unruly and unlawful conduct/misconduct of our state governor, who happens to be one of our party members”.
“You may thus be alarmed that with the near bankruptcy of our state, reeling in this wanton misgovernance, is yet the subject of the threat contained in the governor’s letter to you stating that he is aware of the burning of the Secretariat of our party.”
“Whilst threatening further mayhem, he also has forwarded to you his videos of those he caught with result sheets (which the party did not report missing). The governor having arrested those people (who are contractors of Government House, Owerri), and having called the police and the media himself proceeded to conduct the investigation himself”.
The chieftains who signed the letter include Senators Ben Uwajimogu, Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, Hon. Mike Ohia, Hope Uzodinma, Ifeanyi Araraume, Osita Izunaso, and Hon. Austin Chukwukere. The APC chairman in Oguta Local Government, who is also the leader of the party’s local government chairmen in the state, Hon. Cassidy Ohamara equally aligned his group with the contents of the letter.
NIGERIA NEWS gathered that the letter was also copied to President Muhammadu Buhari, Chairman, Deputy Chairman (South) of the Party, National Assembly, the National Security Adviser, the Inspector General of Police, all State Governors, DG, Department of State Services as well as members of the National Working Committee NWC of the party for necessary action.
