Okorocha Blasts Oshiomhole For Apologising To Catholic Church On His Behalf



Governor Rochas Okorocha has said that the Roman Catholic bishop of Owerri, Bishop Anthony Obinna expects him to establish God’s kind of government in Imo State and hence the animosity between the two men.

Speaking through his chief press secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, the Imo State governor said the drive for perfection was behind the faceoff between the catholic bishop and former governors of the state including Tanko Zubairu, Achike Udenwa and Ikedi Ohakim.

The governor spoke in reaction to the apology made on his behalf by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC which the governor said was unwarranted.

He said:

“And for Archbishop Obinna, the governor holds him in a very high esteem and has no personal problem with that outstanding man of God. But the truth is that the Archbishop perhaps expects the perfect Leadership expected in heaven to be established in Imo which is not possible. And that could be the reason he had had issues with Col Tanko Zubairu, Achike Udenwa and indeed Ikedi Ohakim.

“The Archbishop is the spiritual father of the governor. And the governor has never let him down. And Comrade Oshiomhole should find out from President Buhari whether Governor Okorocha took him to the Archbishop in 2015 when he came on Campaign for a private meeting that lasted more than an hour.

“To us, that was a high demonstration of respect and regard. But guess what? Two days after, the newspaper owned by the Archbishop came up with a banner headline “Alhaji in Government House” and part of the story was that the governor was taking young Igbos to the North to be Islamized. All these were part of the Campaigns to discourage Imo people from voting for him, APC and President Buhari. These are the issues.

“So, Comrade Oshiomhole’s apology was a badly tailored blackmail. And somewhat inciting. He is only trying to justify the blunder he contracted and dispatched Ahmed Gulak to commit in Owerri. And the man has put himself on trial. And that is the reason since that woeful and awful outing he has made more than nine claims to see how he could recover, but all to no avail. He murdered sleep and would remain awake.

“We want to remind Comrade Oshiomhole that he is the National Chairman of a ruling party. His actions and utterances should reflect the dignity such office carries. For instance, when Governor Okorocha spoke to the media after meeting with Mr. President, one could see maturity in his speech. He didn’t start calling Oshiomhole names because calling names is meant for touts.

“As a matter of fact the National Chairman didn’t treat the concerned governors well no matter his reasons. He should not expect them to go home celebrating. In the circumstance, his utterances and actions should be responsive and reconciliatory, to a very large extent. And not declaration of war.”
