Confirmed reports coming to us through a confidential source (who is also an aid to one of the governors) had it that the governor of Imo state, Mr. Rochas Okorocha was in a very big direct confrontation with some top APC jugganauts including the governor of Kaduna State, Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai. This internal but silent fracas
is not unconnected with the open threat by Okorocha to work against APC if his chioce governorship candidate who is also his inlaw – Uche Nwosu is not helped by APC to become the next Imo State governor.
In a secret meeting held in Abuja over the weekend where Rochas Okorocha, Nasir Ahamad el-Rufai, Yahaya Bello and others were present, Okorocha soliticited once again the complete support of the APC and the power of incumbency to subdue the Imo population into inserting his choice candidate Uche Nwosu to be the next governor of Imo State. Okorocha reiterated that it was done in Ekitii and Osun states and asked why it couldn’t be done in Imo State with the help of the FG power.
According to our source, trouble started when Okorocha became emotional in his continuous request and was shouted down by El-Rufai. El-Rufai taunted Okorocha that he is afraid because he will be rotting in jail if another governorship candidate apart from his choice enters Imo State.
It was this time that Okorocha, who was visibly annoyed and shaken, resolved to threats. He first of all sang his own praises on how he took a very gigantic risk by aiding APC and Buhari into power desipite the hatred by the South easterners in general. Mr. Okorocha vividly threatened to help Nnamdi Kanu who is the leader of the Indegenous People Of Biara (IPOB) into exposing the impostor in Aso Rock who is not Buhari.
According to our secret source, Okorocha maintained that he have at his disposal every information proving that the person in Aso Rock isn’t Buhari and he will mention all the people involved in the evil plot to deceive Nigerians. This threats infuriated particularly El-Rufai and almost resulted into physical fight especially between Okorocha and El-Rufai. The meeting ended abruptly with El-Rufai dashing out of the conference room into his awaiting car looking highly furious.
The secret close-door meeting was held without the presence of any journalist or camera.
Stay tuned for more information as they unfold.
