The former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has called on the Chief of Staff to Governor Emeka Ihedioha, Chris Okewulonu, to stop abusing him.
The Senator representing Imo West District in the National Assembly, stated that Okewulonu’s alleged abusive language against him, shows he does not have the temperament and character required of his office.
A report had it that Okewulonu had told Okorocha to “shut up” following a plea by the former governor to his successor to stop embarrassing his family members by some government officials.
Okorocha in a statement through his media adviser, Sam Onwuemeodo, stated that Okorocha advised Ihedioha to sack Okewulonu for bringing the office of a chief of staff to disrepute.
“We want to swiftly call on Governor Emeka Ihedioha to sack Mr. Chris Okewulonu as Chief of Staff, Government House because he has shown that he lacks the composure or discipline and the right temperament such sensitive office requires.”
“Mr. Okewulonu openly told the immediate past governor of the state, Senator Rochas Okorocha to shut up, which went viral in the media. For making such callous statement about the immediate past governor of the state, Mr. Okewulonu only showed that he is highly irresponsible and never had any proper upbringing,” the statement said.
