The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has reconciled the new Imo state governor, Hope Uzodinma, and the Senator representing Imo West, Rochas Okorocha.
Upon taking opposing camps during the governorship vote, both men did not see eye to eye for a long time.
Okorocha, then the governor in control, as his successor had cast his weight behind Uche Nwosu, his son-in-law.
Yet Oshiomhole has announced that he supports Uzodinma.
Even after the election was over and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)’s Emeka Ihedioha was declared winner, the discord continued.
Once tuesday the Supreme Court dismissed Ihedioha, Okorocha congratulated Uzodinma, expressing his willingness to work with him.
On Wednesday, both men shook hands until Uzodinma said in pidgin: “I ‘t don catch you na.” Oshiomhole then sang: “We’re reconciling; we’re reuniting; we’re putting the past behind us as victory comes our way.”
