Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, has raised the alarm over plans by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole and Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi to alienate him from politics and halt his 2023 presidential ambition.
The Imo governor disclosed that the recent political upheaval in his state was sponsored by people outside the state, using politicians from the state to pull him down ahead of 2023.
He said: “There is more to the noise you are hearing about the governorship election in Imo, it is not about Uche Nwosu, it is about a plot to stop Okorocha by all means, otherwise why will Adams Oshiomhole and Rotimi Amaechi be interested in who governs Imo.
“The calculation is that if Uche Nwosu becomes governor and I go to Senate, I will be a strong force by 2023. The most annoying fact is that they are using our people to pursue that agenda”.
Okorocha said this while addressing a press conference at the Government House, Owerri on Tuesday, where he described the ongoing politics as a “war in a different dimension.”
