The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, on Monday attacked the Catholic Archbishop of the Owerri Diocese, Most Reverend Anthony Obinna.
He alleged that the cleric, alongside ex-governor Achike Udenwa, his kinsman, Ezekiel Izuogu and a former chairman of the state Council of Traditional Rulers, Eze Cletus Ilomuanya, hated both the All Progressives Congress and President Muhammadu Buhari.
Okorocha said the Owerri Catholic Archbishop is a supporter of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, which he said, was made public in 2015.
The governor in a statement through his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, noted that in 2015, the cleric openly supported the APGA governorship candidate, Captain Emma Iheanacho, and the then presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dr Goodluck Jonathan.
He recalled thus, “In 2015, Governor Rochas Okorocha took President Muhammadu Buhari to Archbishop Obinna when he came on a campaign. They met privately for hours but two days after, his newspaper (The Leader) came up with the caption. “The Alhaji in Government House” and told the false story of how Okorocha was taking Igbo youths to the north to be Islamised. The medium up till today has never seen any reason to give the APC and President Buhari a chance.
“So they are working together now in support of Hope Uzodinma, whose claim of being a member of the APC is not up to six months. And the PDP chieftains like Udenwa also supporting the senator. These people cannot love APC or President Buhari.”
