The General Secretary, Tailors Association of Nigeria.(TAN), Comrade Kabir Ibrahim has called on the lmo state Governor, Mr. Hope Uzodimma, to sheath his sword against the Senator representing lmo West Senatorial District, Senator Rochas Okorocha.
The governor and Okorocha have been at daggers drawn over the arrest of the former governor by the Police last week Sunday, for forcefully entering the sealed Spring Royal Palm Hotel and Apartment in Owerri, Imo state, built by the former 1st Lady Nkechi Okorocha.
The Imo State Commissioner for Lands, Mr Enyinnaya Onuegbu, had led government officials to seal the premises last Friday evening in compliance with the recommendations of the panel that looked into lands illegally acquired between 2006 and May 2019, which uncovered that the land designated in the government’s master plan as Green Verge was fraudulently acquired by the former governor’s wife when Okorocha was the governor of the state.
Comrade Kabir in a press statement, Friday in Kaduna, advised both leaders to come together and settled their issues for the betterment, and progress of the state.
According to him, both leaders should provide solutions to the myriad of problems confronting them and the state.
He noted that some of their issues were not peculiar to them alone, but the way the both leaders handle it would, to a large extent, shape how they are resolved at the national and state levels.
Comrade Kabir also urged the leaders to be cautious in their utterances and actions so as not to provide the oxygen for the exploitation of their fault lines to the detriment of lmo state and the nation.
