As the battle between the governor of Imo State governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha and his former right hand man Friday, Senator Ifeanyi Ararume rages on, Organization of Imo State Indigenes, Imo Peoples Assembly (IPA) has said the former senator is reaping the evil seed he sowed in 2015.
Speaking in an interview with irukkanews, the president of the organization, Prince Ignatius Ozaraebuka during the last general election, Senator Ararume sowed seed of treachery, adding that what goes round always has a way of coming round. According to him, Ararume was one of those who brought the embarrassment that is currently going on in Imo state in the name of governance by Okorocha.
He said after the governorship primary of the PDP in Imo State in 2014, which Ararume lost woefully, instead of exercising spirit of sportsmanship and team up with the winner, Hon.Emeka Ihedioha, and ensure that PDP retains the Douglas House Owerri, he went to court to challenge what was obviously a free, fair and credible primary and while the case was still in the court, Ararume decamped to APC with his supporters and then began to tell the world that Owelle Rochas Okorocha was the best thing that God has ever created and at the same time rubbishing the PDP.
Prince Ozaraebuka said that what Ararume refused to realize then was that what goes round has a way of coming round and with what one measures, would be measured unto him. He said the world is now wondering why the same Ararume who told said Okorocha was the greatest political gift that God gave to Imo state in 2015 would now be talking differently, simply because the governor refused to endorse his 2019 governorship ambition.
The Imo Peoples Assembly president said that the indigenes are not deceived by Senator Ararume’s later day repentance because the difference between him and governor Okorocha is like six and half a dozen.
“Senator Ararume is reaping what he sowed in Imo state in 2015. He sowed the seed of treachery and he is reaping the same now. He was one of those that dis-organized the Imo PDP by going to court to challenge the outcome of the gubernatorial primary which was won by Hon.Emeka Ihedioha. We went all the way to the Supreme court and when he lost, he decamped to the APC with his supporters, most of them who did not know that he was fighting a selfish war.
But today, the pendulum has swung to the other direction and he is lamenting. But the truth is that Imolites are not deceived by his antics. We are aware that he is ready to fraternize even with the devil in order to achieve his governorship ambition but the reality is that Imo state has moved beyond him and Okorocha”.
