Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday held a meeting behind closed-door with Senator Rochas Okorocha, the former Governor of Imo State.
The meeting we suspect might be regarding the political crisis between him (Rochas) and his predecessor, Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State.
Okorocha who was a former governor of the state spoke to State House Correspondents after meeting with the VP.
“The whole thing to me sounds like a movie, a joke, a dream that does not reflect any practical reality, but I am a father, I’m a leader of that state and I am trying to make sure things don’t escalate beyond control.
“But for what has been done to me, I am human; I can bear it just for the purpose of peace to reign.
“I am still waiting to understand the reason why all the attack because before, the allegation was that the money used in building was government money.
“Now, it has changed; it is no longer the issue of government money, but that it is built on the green verge and allocation where Government House was supposed to be built. I am still waiting and only time will tell.
“But let it be known that I was Rochas Okorocha before governor and I am still Rochas Okorocha after governor.
“Government House never made me. I was who I was, before becoming governor. Rather, I would say that becoming governor was a sacrifice on my own part.”
“But talking about the properties in question, the schools, the East High College, Rochas Foundation College, the Royal Spring Palm Hotel and the university, these outfits are all charitable outfits for the Rochas Foundation.
“And I brought them back home as a sign of investment to encourage investment in my own state, where I come from.”
