The crisis bedeviling the Progressives Congress (APC) seems to be far from over as reports have alleged that Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, who is the leader of the party in the South East has sent three names, including that of his in-law to President Muhammadu Buhari for the post of Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).
The said in-law, Professor Anthony Amuka’s son, Uche is married to Governor Okorocha’s daughter, Uju.Asides Amuka, Governor Okorocha reportedly submitted the names of former Anambra State Governor Senator Chris Ngige and former Abia State Governor Ogbonnaya Onu “to fulfill all righteousness.”
A source in the Imo State government availed: “You should be aware by now that Rochas has removed the SSG in Imo State. He replaced him with his chief of staff and replaced the chief of staff with his son-in-law (Uche Nwosu) who was Commissioner for Lands in his first term. He has sent Anwukas name to Buhari for the post of SGF.”
The source also debunked earlier rumours that Onu would be chosen for the position, adding that Governor Okorocha has already made his mind up for his in-law to assume the role left vacant by Anyim Pium Anyim.
Another source said: “If you look at the sharing of key posts, you would see that APGA (All Progressives Grand Alliance) that he took to join them in the APC has not been rewarded.
“Buhari is from the defunct CPC (Congress for Progressives Change), Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, his deputy is from the defunct ACN (Action Congress of Nigeria, John Odigie-Oyegun (APC National Chairman) was a chieftain of the defunct ANPP (All Nigeria Peoples Party) while Bukola Saraki came from the New PDP (Peoples Democratic Party).
