Anglican Archbishop of Enugu Province, Most Rev. Emmanuel Chukwuma, has blasted the governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha for suggesting that the All Progressives Congress (APC) would remove South East’s highest political office holder, deputy Senate president Ike Ekweremadu from his seat.
Speaking today in Enugu, Archbishop Chukwuma said:
“The person who is going to the Senate under the APC is coming just for the first term; whether you like it or not, he must come and pay homage to Ekweremadu.
“How can you as a Governor who is just sponsoring one person, for the first time be threatening that you will remove Ekweremadu? It is not possible.
“What I am saying is that Okorocha should apologize and he should know that he is either an Igbo man or a bastard Igbo.
“He is a bastard Igbo if he does not apologize and we are ready to disown him because he is not in the same page with us as an Igbo man. If he was sent by agents from outside, they have failed.”
