Imo Deputy Gov Slams Okorocha as a ‘Bad Loser’

The Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, and the convener of the Imo APC Restoration Coalition, Dr Theodore Ekechi, have described Governor Rochas Okorocha as a bad loser, citing his penchant for disregard to court orders.

The duo, who spoke in the wake of the nullification of the October 6 primaries that produced Okorocha as the winner to contest the Imo West senatorial seat and his son in-law, Uche Nwosu, as the APC governorship candidate, said they had been vindicated.

They made the assertion after an Owerri High court on Wednesday nullified the congress purportedly conducted on October 6, 2018 by the Ibrahim Agbabiaka-led committee from which the duo had emerged.

Also, Madumere had gone to court to seek for an injunction restraining the party and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), from organizing, monitoring or supervising any other governorship primaries of the party in the state.

The presiding judge, Hon. Justice K. A. Ojiako, had granted the prayers sought by Madumere that the October 1, 2018 Imo governorship APC primary election be declared the only relevant and valid primary election in which Senator Hope Uzodinma emerged the winner.

Okorocha and his son in-law had vowed to fight to the last over their alleged stolen mandate, with the embattled governor blaming the national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole for his travails.
