Imo state 2019 gubernatorial aspirant under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA Prince Dan Kanu has described the Imo state governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha as a selfish, drowning, dishonest and discredited person.

Imo state 2019 gubernatorial aspirant under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA Prince Dan Kanu has described the Imo state governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha as a selfish, drowning, dishonest and discredited person.

Kanu in a press statement made available to Nigeria Moment yesterday Monday noted his comment a reply to the public statement credited to the Imo state governor on Tuesday 3rd July, 2018 at the All Progressives Congress rally held at Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri where the governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, “made reference to my humble self “Prince Daniel Kanu as the APGA Aspirant that worked for Abacha and has lived in the United States for over 20 years. He further asked the unsuspecting crowd if they would “vote for a governor that lived in the United States for over 20 years”. 
The guber hopeful said that ordinarily he would have ignored such comments especially when it came from a person he identified as “a selfish, drowning, dishonest and discredited person as Owelle Rochas Okorocha”. He said since the governor is currently occupying the exalted office of the Governor of the state, he was obligated to state the facts to prevent the governor's desperate attempt to bamboozle, hoodwink and deceive the good people of Imo state.
According to him, the governor is trying to impose his house servant and son in-law as a Governor of Imo state in 2019, thereby further subjecting Imo people to compounded suffering, hunger, poverty, flooding, poor infrastructure, demolitions, unemployment, and humiliation. He said for the record, in 1997, “Rochas Okorocha visited me while I was having lunch at the restaurant in Agura Hotel, Abuja to beg me to convince the then Head of State, General Sani Abacha to adopt him (Okorocha) as a Vice Presidential running mate, since he heard that South-East would produce the VP to Abacha, if he decided to contest and become a democratically elected president in 1998. 
It's ironic that the same Okorocha is attempting to turncoat and claim innocence in the support of the Abacha regime.  Of course, inconsistency and deceit are Okorocha's hallmarks. He stated that the statement was part of the governor's plans to discredit him and paint him black before the world when he the governor knew that he has advantage over him with his contacts and educational backgrounds to liberate Imolites from the present hardship brought by the Okorocha's maladministration. 
According to him, the hypocrite governor failed to inform Imolites that all his children are currently living and schooling abroad both in the United States and England, adding that governor who went to the podium only to disparage his educational attainment conveniently chose to ignore the fact that he, the governor defrauded him of more than USD$8 million, part of which money that was used to pay rent for his family home in Dallas, Texas United States, which “I have filed a claim in the United States Courts and he is also being investigated for fraud by the United States District Attorney”.  He furthered that governor Okorocha has legal cases to answer in the United States because of his alleged fraudulent lifestyle in the USA where he lacks immunity from prosecution.
