The latest has just been heard about the recent upsurge between the incumbent Governor Rochas Okorocha and Owerrri Zone APC Memebers. The Owerri APC stakeholders are strongly threatening to dump the party if Governor Okorocha fails to adopt a candidate from Owerri zone to represent the party at the next coming gubernatorial election.
In a bid to enforce this motion, selected members of this group gathered at the country home of Chief Dr. Uzoma Obiyo in Ugiri-ike Ikeduru, where Owerri Zone sons and daughters are encourage to continue to participate in governance, and thereby challenged to produce the next Governor of Imo State come 2019.
In the meeting which was well attended by men and women of strong caliber, the speakers decried that the Owerri Zone has been marginalized when it comes to the issue of the Governorship of the State and the need to maintain the process of zoning.
Spealing at the event, Chief Uzoma Obiyo stated that the good people of Owerri zone have meaningful sons and daughters who can lead Imo State as Governors.
