Okorocha vs UmehGovernor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state yesterday described the sack of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) National Chairman, Chief Victor Umeh by an Abuja High Court as a healthy development for the nation’s democracy.

He said the judgment was a further proof of the divine mandate given to him by the people of the state and his decision to lead the South-East to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Okorocha, who spoke at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri, the Imo State capital shortly after his arrival from a two-week vacation in the USA, said that nothing could be more rewarding than the sack of Mr. Umeh.

He said: “You will recall that a few months ago, APGA threatened to go to court to recover their mandate from me, and suddenly their chairman was sacked. How best can you describe the development but to say it is divine? For me, that is democracy in action”.

The Governor, who addressed a mammoth crowd of party supporters that thronged the airport to receive him, said that the nation’s democracy is on course, adding that the 2015 general elections will be free and fair.

“Nigerians should not be afraid that any of the institutions will be used to rig elections. We are Nigerians, INEC can be talked to. The Army can be talked to.

“It will be foolhardy to take sides when they don’t know who will win the election. We want to assure Nigerians that the sham that happened in Anambra can never happen again”.

Okorocha also expressed dismay over the non-appointment of anyone from the South-East region as one of the service chiefs following the removal of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika, an indigene of Abia State and two other Service Chiefs on Thursday.
