In what appears to be a political romance in Imo State, Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha and the political family of Owelle Rochas Okorocha seem to have commenced a very blissful relationship.
The relationship, from what The Eastern Updates learnt may not be unconnected to the coming 2023 election.
The suspected fresh relationship became open on Wednesday at the Eziama Obaire, Nkwerre when former governor, Ihedioha was spotted at the event.
The incident was captured at the late Jemaimah Nwosu, burial ceremony, mother to Okorocha’s son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, in Eziama, Nkwerre Local Government Area of Imo State.
This is coming, first time, since the end of the 2019 governorship battle, and since 2020, Supreme Court sacked Emeka Ihedioha, as governor of Imo state
Speaking at the event, Okorocha said: “I am not happy with the number of people that are being killed. I want to beg our youths don’t visit your anger on the govt of innocent people. This killing must stop.
“This is not the Imo we used to know. I know the anger, pains of Imo youths. But killing your brothers and sisters is not the right way to go. Instead, the youths should go and get their voters card and use it to express their anger through the ballot paper.”
However, it was full of surprises, when Nwosu, led Ihedioha, into the event where Ihedioha and Okorocha, sat close to each other. This was as many of their supporters came around to exchange pleasantries among the various camps.
There has been unconfirmed reports about Okorocha and his political family known as Rescue Mission, moving over to the PDP for next general election.
Further permutations also have it that in a bid to stop Uzodinma having another tenure in Government House Owerri, an alliance between Okorocha and Ihedioha is brewing up. It was suspected that should the political marriage works out, a partnership will see them field candidates that will stop Uzodinma in next general election.
Ihedioha’s condolence visit to Nwosu further confirms the coming political marriage with the Rescue Mission political family.
