I Will Send John Oyegun To Jail – Okorocha

Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, has vowed to ensure that the national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun, is jailed for lawlessness in his bid to destroy the party.

In a statement signed by the governor’s spokesperson, Sam Onwuemeodo, on Tuesday, June 5, 2018, he accused the party chairman of violating court orders after he swore in Hilary Eke as Imo APC chairman despite the fact that there is a case in court over his eligibility.

The statement reads, “The way Chief Oyegun pursued the issue of tenure elongation also showed how selfish and greedy he is. He is not interested in the well-being or future of the party, but only interested in staying put as the national chairman of the party. That is why he is after anybody who opposed the tenure elongation.

“The worst thing that would have happened to APC is to allow Chief Oyegun to continue as the national chairman of the party. Chief Akande never tried to destroy the party when he was leaving as the pioneer chairman but Oyegun wants to destroy the party because he is leaving. He is not patriotic.

“In the case of Imo, he disobeyed two court orders with regard to the congresses in Imo and the inauguration of strange elements as state officials of the party just to get at Governor Okorocha because of the issue of elongation.

“And we have no option now than to ask our lawyers to press for his imprisonment and that of Osita Izunaso and all those who were involved in the lawlessness.

“The only thing Chief Oyegun has achieved in his anger against Governor Okorocha is encouraging elements with no electoral value like Osita Okechukwu and those from Imo to be insulting the governor. And these are people who cannot win their booths in an election.”
