Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, on Saturday described his people of the South East as prostitutes when he described the people of the area as people of easy virtue in Nigeria, contrary to what used to be obtainable in the past when people of the region, especially the women, were cherished and honoured for their conduct and morality.
Addressing All Progressives Congress (APC) faithful at Orlu Township Stadium at the weekend, the Executive Governor of Imo State, Owelle Anayo Rochas Okorocha said that South East states now produce the highest number of prostitutes in the country as a result of bad representation by the Igbo leaders.
According to him, every nook and cranny of the country you go to you always find young ladies of Igbo extraction selling their supposed priced body for money.
Governor Okorocha described Igbo leaders as self-serving who do not have the interest of their people at heart. He noted that due to the economic crunch that is prevalent in the zone many ladies have taken to prostitution as a profession.
The state helmsman described the people of Orlu zone as good people who have always supported him through their prayers and encouragement, enjoining them to keep it up.
Governor also took a pound of flesh from the Apex Leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Imo State, Chief Martin Agbaso, by describing him as an acclaimed King maker who could not make himself a king.
He dismissed the claim that he was made the governor by Chief Agbaso, wondering how a man who has vied for the same position for the up two times and failed could make him a governor.
Okorocha said that APGA was dead before he joined the party, claiming that his presence revived it.
“APGA was dead and I came in and APGA won an election”, he said, adding that “he made me a governor but he could not make himself governor”.
Governor Okorocha who is the APC Governors' Forum Chairman disclosed that there were two factions of APGA in the state, the APGA-PDP and his own faction of APGA, maintaining that he joined APC for the sake of Ndi-Igbo.
He assured the Igbo nation that it is only through the APC platform that an Igbo man can become the President of Nigeria.
He flayed the Federal Government, revealing that among the five top positions in the country, none is being occupied by a person of Igbo extraction, even as he reminded the crowd at the Stadium that the only post in the military which was held by an Igboman has been confiscated from him. He promised them that Ndi-Igbo would be better with the APC.
Okorocha enjoined them to massively troop over to the APC, adding that Imo people have ran away from the PDP as going back to the PDP could be likened to going back to Egypt.
He further described the symbol of APGA as a cockerel which is only good at Christmas because people slaughter it and eat it at the yuletide period.
According to him, he could have won the election irrespective of the party he emerged from, even Labour Party.
