The former Govenror of Imo State and Senator representing Orlu Zone, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, have reacted to threat to arrest the Imo State Chairman of the APC, Mr. Daniel Nwafor.
The reaction is made known in an article by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, and reads as follows:
MBADIWE EMELUMBA AND HIS THREAT TO ARREST IMO STATE APC CHAIRMAN, DANIEL NWAFOR :
Hon Mbadiwe Emelumba is the Commissioner for information and Strategy, lmo state. And from all indications, he has shown that he does not know what the functions of an information and Strategy Commissioner should be. He lacks that knowledge and he is not the kind that would ask questions for assistance.
Hence, he does the work of the CPS to the governor. He also carries out the functions of the SSA , Print media ( local) and even those of Social media. He equally does the work of the Publicity Secretary of the governor’s faction of APC.
And the attendant outcome is that, the government, to all and sundry, is foot-dragging or staggering, thinking about which leg to put forward first.
He is every where , doing the work of others. And those affected obviously have abandoned the whole thing for him . And he is enjoying the “show”.
Otherwise, tell me what would have prompted the Commissioner for information and Strategy, to issue arrest threat to the APC chairman in the State , Daniel Nwafor. Let me add that he has also begun to do Nlemigbo’s job as the Chairman of the non-existent Caretaker Committee .
And because of his style of always issuing threats, few of pro- government elements on WhatsApp platforms, with not more than 220 inmates, put together, only issue threats. And star in abuses or insults. Here, we are today.
Nlemigbo is a lawyer. He knows that with the Appeal Court judgement, Daniel Nwafor is the party’s chairman in the state. The caretaker committee status he is enjoying, has been his lot in lmo politics. ln PDP, lmo state, he was also a caretaker committee chairman. That’s his own “allocation”.
Otherwise, he should have known better. Mbadiwe should stop threatening people. He should look beyond Owerri municipal. But Mbadiwe is a good guy . And a veteran journalist. But politics appears to have taken a toll on him. He was in the House of Assembly , but his eyes saw his ears. He saw the one that “seniored” Beatrice. He was in and out of court. While Senator Hope Uzodinma was backing him , Senator Osita lzunaso was backing his opponent, a lawyer. He would win today.
Tomorrow, his opponent would win. It was his case that saw the dismissal of one Justice Okorie or Okoro of the Federal High Court Owerri. l followed the whole stuff. lt was very interesting. Hope and lzunaso episode. No cause for alarm. God shall continue to be our SHEPHERD, while we shall continue to clap for Jesus .
My name is Sam Onwuemeodo.
