A Court of Appeal sitting in Owerri on Thursday upheld the election of Owelle Rochas Okorocha of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as senator representing Imo West Senatorial District. The court also upheld the election of senate majority whip, Orji Uzor Kalu, also of the APC.
A Magistrates' Court in Owerri has summoned the former governor of Imo state, Senator Rochas Okorocha, to appear before it on October 8 to explain why he should not be convicted for alleged incitement.
Senator Rochas Okorocha believes that the All Progressives Congress may crumble after the exit of President Muhammadu Buhari and therefore called for an overhauling of the party leadership to avert this.
Immediate past Governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha and the former Governor of Abia State, Theodore Orji clashed during the screening of the immediate past Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola for a ministerial position on Monday.
