Daily Courier – The former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to call the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to order, appealing that the president intervenes by stopping the EFCC from constantly harassing and intimidating him over allegations of a N2.9 billion fraud case.
In a chat with state house correspondents after a visit to the president, Senator Okorocha explained that there has been a court judgment and two court orders for different judgments, stopping the EFCC from further interrogating him.
Okorocha described the EFCC’s actions as biased, pre-judgmental, and politically motivated.
Okorocha, a senator representing Imo West Senatorial District at the National Assembly, called on the president as one who upholds the law to speak out on the matter.
Governor Okorocha equally underscored the need to strengthen the ruling party from the grassroots.
According to him, the president has especially vowed that the days of politicians clinching power from Abuja, without getting requisite support from the masses at the grassroots, will no longer be tolerated in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
