Rochas, Ararume Forms Coalition, Inaugurates Imo APC Pioneer Group
The political tussle between the former Governor of Imo state Rochas Okorocha, and the current Governor Hope Uzodinma has taken a new dimension as the tussle now is uniting Rochas with Ifeanyi Ararume into a new political romance and marriage involving the two political structures of the Imo heavyweights. Ararume is also a political enemy to Uzodinma. Recall that Uzodinma recently stopped Ararume from going back to the Senate after his two term membership of the upper legislature.
The new political group though under the umbrella of the ruling APC appears to be the biggest political family in the history of Imo State politics.
The group was activated following the need to recapture the soul of the party in Imo State. The new group is comprised of the Rescue Mission Family of Africa’s foremost education philanthropist and former Governor of Imo State, Sen. Rochas Okorocha and the Destiny Organisation of the consummate politician, Sen. Ifeanyi Ararume.
In a media statement released on Tuesday 6th July 2021, the new group will be known as, "Imo APC Pioneer Group"
