Plot to Impeach Governor Okorocha of Imo State Uncovered

The following statement was released by the Imo state Chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA who alleged that there is a plot orchestrated by the ruling People's Democratic Party to remove from power the people oriented administration of Governor Rochas Okorocha.

The attention of the All Progressive Grand  Alliance(APGA) Imo state has been drawn to the recent plot by the Presidency and Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) to distort the activities of the Imo State House of Assembly, promote disaffection in the ranks of the state government and if possible execute the long conceived agenda of impeaching the Speaker, Imo State House of Assembly, Hon. Benjamin Uwajimogu and Gov. Owelle Rochas Okorocha.
This ill-conceived move is not unconnected to the ongoing investigation by the state legislature over allegation of financial gratification leveled against the Deputy Governor, Sir Jude Agbaso by one of the major contractors handling the state government road projects.
Recall that His Excellency, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, a few days suspended his oversee trip to intervene when events as regards to this subject matter almost assumed a very negative dimension.
We are therefore surprised with the way and manner the Presidency and national leadership of the PDP  unexpectedly showed interest on the matter and subsequently declared support for the Deputy Governor, Sir Jude Agbaso, who is not a member of the PDP.
However, we gathered that the 12 PDP lawmakers in the state legislature summoned to Abuja a few days ago, met with the national chairman of the party and its Board of Trustee Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and Chief Tony Anenih at  Nicon Hilton where the lawmakers were told in clear terms not to participate in the ongoing investigation on corrupt allegation against  the Deputy Governor.
According to our source, this position is an aftermath of Chief Martin Agbaso's recent deal with the PDP. The senior Agbaso had as part of the clandestine moves to save his younger brother, struck a deal with the PDP promising to remain in APGA as against his earlier intention to join the All Progressive Congress(APC). He also pledged to work for the PDP presidential candidate in 2015 which President Goodluck is favored to pick.
The lawmakers, our source further hinted, also met with the Political Adviser to the President, Alhaji Ali Gulak and National Vice Chairman of PDP, South East, Col Akobundu(Rtd) in another location also in Abuja and were mandated to support to the Deputy Governor even if he is found guilty of the allegation. They were also ordered to strategize and actualize the impeachment of the Speaker, Hon. Benjamin Uwajimogu and Gov. Owelle Rochas Okorocha as both are perceived to be their problem and not the Deputy Governor. The PDP lawmakers who could not meet with Mr. President as earlier scheduled were said to have been settled with 50,000 Dollars each .
In view of the above, we wish to warn against any form of invasion in the affairs of the APGA-led state government and will definitely end at nothing to resist any plot hatched to destabilize the state by any group or individual.
We also support the ongoing investigation by the Imo State House of Assembly which obviously is in tandem with the zero-corruption disposition of Gov. Okorocha-led administration.

Imo Must Be better
