The stakeholders’ forum of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo state, on Friday, May 25, called on security agencies in the country to hold Governor Rochas Okorocha responsible for any breakdown of law and order in the state.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Theodore Ekechi, the convener of the forum, spoke through a statement in Abuja advising Okorocha to respect his office and stop engaging in activities that could demean the office of the governor.
He condemned the spate of protests allegedly sponsored by the governor, describing such action as ‘senseless’.
“We wish to draw the attention of security agencies and the general public to the spate of senseless protests which we believe are being sponsored by the governor of Imo.
“We particularly draw attention to the sponsored protests of 17th and 23rd of May, at the APC headquarters and by hired miscreants against our coalition and Senator Osita Izunaso in particular.

“From the conduct of the so called protesters, it was self-evident that they did not even know why their services were procured,” he said while warning that the sustenance of such protests with Imo tax payers’ money portends very grave danger.
