The Imo State Commissioner for Community Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Barr. Lady Ugochi Nnanna-Okoro, a stauch member of the powerful People’s Democratic Party (PDP) , who recently resigned from the party to join the All People’s Grand Alliance (APGA), has explained the reasons for quitting the party she joined many years ago.
Speaking at her decamping ceremony with her teeming supporters at the Dan. Anyian Stadium, Owerri, Barr. Lady Nnenna-Okoro explained that having served in the present government for the past seven months he had discovered that his aim of going into politics to touch the lives of the less-priviledged in the society tallied with that of Governor Okorocha.
She said, “I am a home-grown politician at home with my people’s problems and challenges which is in traden with Governor Okorocha’s philosophy of using politics as a vehicle to improve the society and leave it better than one found it”.
In his remark at the occasion, Governor Okorocha commended the commissioner for decamping to APGA which he described as a good thing that has happened to the state as well as an opportunity to rid Imo State of PDP which 12 years rule of the state has nothing to show for it.
Describing Barr. Lady Nnonna-Okoro as a charismatic leader, Governor Okorocha urged her to use her position as the commissioner for community government to achieves its aims and objectives for setting up the community government council system.
