…Hails Journalists For Being Investigative-minded
Governor Rochas Okorocha has commended the people of South East zone for their show of understanding in the recent lopsided appointments made by President Mohammadu Buhari.
Speaking at a press briefing in Owerri, Okorrocha pointed out that appointment of aides were made within the president’s constitutional powers and that such could not be said to have amounted to hatred for the Igbo.
In his words, “It is well within our party’s constitution, APC is a great party, It is a big family, Igbos are also of APC and I represent the face of that very strong movement East. What is important is what the people of South east can get from the federal government o develop the zone and not a particular position that doesn’t bring development.”
The governor expressed happiness about the current cordial relationship existing between him and the governors in the South East, stating that the unity among the south east governors had led to them agreeing to build an economic hub for Ndigbo collectively.
