Imo state Governor, Rochas Okorocha has described former National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and Senator from Anambra central, Victor Umeh a lame senator for berating the Governor for his alleged involvement in the impeachment process of his deputy, Eze Madumere.
Umeh in a statement credited to him has criticized the Governor for instigating the State House of Assembly to impeach Madumere.
Okorocha said since Umeh became Senator he has been finding his feet in the hallowed chamber that is the reason he has time to talk about Imo politics.
Meanwhile, Protesters in their hundreds, yesterday, stormed the Imo Government House, Owerri, berating Governor Rochas Okorocha for allegedly instigating the House of Assembly to impeach his deputy, Prince Eze Madumere.
The protesters, as early as 6am, took over major streets of Owerri to register their grievances over what they perceived as “trumped up charges aimed at impeaching the deputy governor.”
They also described the state assembly as the worst Imo has ever had, calling them “mere rubber stamp in the hands of Okorocha.”
The protest, which brought vehicular and human movements to standstill, saw workers abandoning their vehicles to walk long distances to their places of work.
Addressing newsmen, one of the leaders, Mr. Chidiebere Nworgu, claimed that the state was gradually sliding to anarchy, with a one-man business and where an individual treated Imolites with levity.
