Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State on Tuesday told a stakeholders’ forum that Senator Rochas Okorocha is his biggest headache even

Governor Uzodimma said that Okorocha had failed to realise that his time as a governor is over and has failed to accord him, Uzodimma, his respect as the incumbent governor.

Uzodimma had said he would use the occasion of the stakeholders’ forum to name those sponsoring insecurity in the state.

However, speaking on the occasion, Uzodimma acknowledged that that that statement from him heightened tension.

He said that rather than naming them, he would allow security agents who had identified them do so without interference.

He accused politicians and the media of “creating unnecessary tension and apprehension” in the state.

Uzodimma said, “You will recall that I have said that I will use the opportunity of this Stakeholders meeting to name those behind insecurity in the state.

“Since then, many politicians have latched on that statement to cause problems in the state. Even the media, both mainstream and social, did not help matters.

“I want to tell you that instead of naming them I will allow security agencies who are are already investigating those identified to finish their investigation. Naming them would jeopardise the work of security agencies who are already doing a great job.”

Uzodimma, however, at the stakeholders’ forum accused Okorocha of usurping his ( Uzodimma’s) role by not realising that his time had gone.

Uzodimma said, “We have many former governors in the state. We have former governors Achike Udenwa, Ikedi Ohakim, Emeka Ihedioha and Rochas Okorocha. But Rochas Okorocha has failed to recognise that he is a former governor

“Rochas Okorocha is my younger brother. I am older than him and today I am the governor. He should recognize that fact and accord me that respect,” he added.

Among the diginataries present at the ocassion were Senators Osita Izunsao, Frank Ibezim, Professor George Obiozor, Chief Ikedi Ohakim, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu among others.
