Reconciliation: Uzodinma, Okorocha Visit Tinubu In Aso Rock

Listen to article
The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma and a former governor of the state, Senator Rochas Okorocha were sighted entering the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Thursday evening, accompanied by the National Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Ganduje in a move which appears to be reconciliatory. 

The Eastern Updates gathered from Aso Rock sources that the trio, joined by the Governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, departed the Villa shortly after their arrival.

The President, Bola Tinubu, had reportedly left the office by the time they got there.

Although the reason for their visit remains undisclosed, it might be related to past tensions between Uzodinma and Okorocha, who served as Imo Governor from 2011 to 2019.

A presidency source who spoke reporters revealed that the APC Party Chairman, Alhaji Ganduje may take Uzodimma, who is the Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum, his estranged party man Okorocha and Governor Sanwo-Olu to the President’s residence.

Recall that a recent report from a committee by the Imo State Government accused Okorocha and his allies of misusing public property.

The Eastern Updates reports that this is coming barely 48 hours after Okorocha was indicted by the committee set up by the Imo State Government for the recovery of land belonging to the Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education, Owerri.

The committee said Okorocha used brute force to dispose the college of its land.

In the report signed by the Chairman of the committee, Prof Vitalis Orikeze Ajumbe, and the secretary, B F Anyanwu, and submitted to Governor Hope Uzodimma, the committee recommended the recovery of the Shell Camp land from Okorocha and his associates within six months and hand the same over to the institution.
