OOkorocha Accused Oshiomhole of Building Political ‘Familiocracy’

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has accused the national chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC Adams Oshiomhole, as a known family dynasty builder, while Edo State is the victim.

Describing Oshiomhole as the architect of ‘Familiocracy’, adding that, APC national chairman formed an unholy alliance with Alhaji Ahmed Gulak to derail Imo APC nomination process.

National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, yesterday, challenged those who lost out in the recent party primaries to emulate the comportment of President Muhammadu Buhari who lost three presidential polls before the 2015 success.

Last weekend, Oorocha alleged that the party stopped Uche Nwosu’s approval as governorship candidate in order not to create an Okorocha dynasty through his son-in-law.

In a statement articulated by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, the Imo State governor listed four persons he identified as Oshiomhole’s relatives in the Edo State government or with a ticket of the APC.

He said: “To say the least, Adams Oshiomhole is the “father of family dynasty or nepotism or “familiocracy.” Uche Nwosu, his son-in-law is from Nkwerre Local Government, while Rochas Okorocha is from Ideato South LGA. The only relation of Governor Okorocha who is in his government is Ogechi Ololo from Owerri North.

“But Oshiomhole is the known family dynasty builder. And Edo State is the victim.

“In fact, he is the architect of ‘Familiocracy.’ Adams Oshiomhole is the National Chairman of APC and governor for eight years. “Rilwan Oshiomhole, his younger brother, is a Commissioner in Edo State Oil Producing Development Commission, EDSOPEDEC. Seid Aliyu Oshiomhole, another younger brother, is the House of Assembly candidate for Etsako West 2 State Constituency.

“Yakubu Oshiomhole is the Secretary to the Local Government Commission; Dr. Cyril Adams Oshiomhole is vying for the House of Representatives for Etsako Federal Constituency”.

“With all these, between Rochas Okorocha, whose only relation in government is Ogechi Ololo from Owerri North and Adams Oshiomhole who has the Oshiomholes in government or contesting positions, who should be accused of building a dynasty or running a “familiocracy”?

Yesterday, Oshiomhole challenged those who lost out in the recent party primaries to emulate the comportment of President Muhammadu Buhari who lost three presidential polls before the 2015 success.
