The Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma seems to have buried the hatchet with his predecessor, former governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha, following the recent appointment of Okorocha’s loyalists into his cabinet.
Thia was made known through a press release signed by the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba.
The statement contains eleven appointments approved by the governor, which had more of the former governor Okorocha’s core loyalists as Special Advisers.
Some argue that the Governor may have decided to settle the internal rift in the state APC after succeeding in retrieving the Eastern Palm University (EPU) allegedly owned by the former Governor.
The new appointments, according to the release, had the former Governor’s commissioner for Commerce and Market Development, Lady Joy Mbawuike, the former commissioner for Tourism, Cyril Okafor and former commissioner for Sports, Robert Ekwebelem among other Okorocha’s loyalists.
