okorocha_mdgThe Abia State Government has denied being behind the alleged cancellation of the birthday reception in honour of Governor of Rocha Okorocha of Imo State at the Abia State Polytechnic, earlier on Saturday saying “it will not be drawn into unnecessary matters with Imo state government over mundane issue.”

The clarification comes on the heels of a report by a national daily that Abia State Governor, Theodore Orji purportedly ordered that the birthday reception should not hold in the state because it was a ploy by Mr. Okorocha to launch the recently registered All Progressives Congress, APC, in the Abia.

The report was however, debunked by the Chief Press Secretary to the Abia Governor, Ugochukwu Emezue, who said Mr. Okorocha planned to launch a pet-project called ‘Imo Rescue Mission’ at the Abia State Polytechnic without the consent of the institution’s authorities.

He also said that the police in the state were not duly informed of the planned programme.

The Abia governor’s spokesman said contrary to speculation, his principal and Mr. Okorocha enjoy a cordial relationship but advised that rather than launch his pet project in Abia State, he should have done same in Imo State, where he is governor.

Mr. Emezue also noted that the state would do whatever it takes to prevent the incursion of political thugs from Imo State into Abia to disrupt the peace there.

  1. Sheer madness.there is nothing u can say now 2 make us believe ur lies.u denied him because u of d pdp are scare lest he use his swit tongue and resources 2 reduce ur population 2 apc.dats all.

  2. Tanks to T.A Orji, another means to waste tax payers money. Is Imo state not big enough to host the so call birthday receptions ?. After dubious deductions from civil servants salaries every month while won’t Okorocha have excess to do bthday party in another state, when hunger and poverty are killing Imolites.

  3. Labour Party is the party to rescue Abia State from the chains of bad governance. Abians, Odimma Abia with Engr. Chukwu Onwuegbu(Evang) has come for the change. PDP and APC can kill themselves but God has raised Labour Party for that change.
