The Senator representing Imo West District and immediate past governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has advised his predecessor, Emeka Ihedioha, to consider relieving his chief of staff, Chris Okewulonu, saying his manner, if not curtailed will ruin his (Ihedioha) government.
Okorocha alleged that Okewulonu has been abusing him in recent times.
He said Okewulonu’s alleged abusive language against him, shows he did not have the temperament and character required of his office.
Recall that Okewulonu was recently quoted as telling Okorocha to “shut up,” following the former governor’s plea to his successor to halt further embarrassment of his family members by some government officials.
A statement on Wednesday signed by Okorocha’s media adviser, Sam Onwuemeodo, advised that Ihedioha needs to sack Okewulonu for misconduct so that he will not ruin his government.
“We want to swiftly call on Governor Emeka Ihedioha to sack Mr. Chris Okewulonu as Chief of Staff, Government House because he has shown that he lacks the composure or discipline and the right temperament such sensitive office requires.
“Mr. Okewulonu openly told the immediate past governor of the state, Senator Rochas Okorocha to shut up, which went viral in the media. For making such callous statement about the immediate past governor of the state, Mr. Okewulonu only showed that he is highly irresponsible and never had any proper upbringing,” the statement said.
