But Okorocha In his reply, stated that Ihedioha had simply gathered members and chieftains of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in order to pure insults on him.
He said, “Chief Emeka Ihedioha is governing Imo State with a stolen mandate. Since then, he has never slept with his two eyes closed. He has remained haunted by that electoral mishap.
“What happened in Owerri on Saturday was not Ahiajoku Lecture but a get-together by the PDP bigwigs and they were assembled by Governor Ihedioha to abuse the former governor, Rochas Okorocha, the APC and the party’s leadership at all levels.
“All those who attended the event including Fani Kayode, Chief Chidoka, Chief Peter Obi, Prof M. Echeruo, Governor Udom Emmanuel, etc are all PDP chieftains.”
