Governor Rochas Okorocha has been slammed in recent times by his critics, for appointing his family members in strategic positions in his government. However the has debunked the allegation in an interview. According to him, “those behind the allegation have missed the point.”
He said: “more than 4,000 children had gone to University through Rochas Foundation and more than 15,000 of such children are also in the various colleges of the Foundation”.
“When some of them graduate, they chose to be with me and I cannot afford to say no to them and if any of such children becomes anything under me they would say he or she is a member of Rochas Family.
“Uche Nwosu (his son in-law) who is from Nkwerre Local Government Area and Prince Eze Madumere, from Mbaitoli LGA, are all counted today members of my family because they have grown to prominence, but when they took those steps of faith no one counted them as members of my family”.
