The senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District , Chief Victor Umeh , on Sunday , asked God for forgiveness over his role in the emergence of Rochas Okorocha , as the Governor of Imo State in 2011 on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance .Describing Okorocha as an evil who had become an island unto himself , Umeh said the governor had become “ a pain in the neck of his people . ”

Umeh , as the APGA national chairman in 2011 , led members of the party to Imo State and after giving the party’ s ticket to Okorocha , campaigned for him and he won .

Okorocha , however , dumped APGA and joined the All Progressives Congress .

Speaking during the inauguration of “ Senator Victor Umeh Support Group ” at Neni in the Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State ahead of the 2019 general elections, Umeh wondered why Okorocha should be desperate to instigate the impeachment of his deputy , Eze Madumere .

The senator recalled how Madumere worked so hard to ensure the success of Okorocha as governor of the state .

He said , “ Madumere was even detained because he was fighting for Okorocha , only for the governor to want to impeach him because the governor wants his son -in – law to be governor of the state . ”
