- Governor Okorocha has rejected the appointment on behalf of his daughter
Last week, NAIJ.com reported that Imo state governor Rochas Okorocha celebrated with his son Amen Amarachi Rochas who just graduated from an American University.
Recently, his second daughter Uju Anwuka was offered a political appointment as a member of board of the Federal College of Education, (Tech), Omoku.
Uju is married to Dr Uzoma Anwua who is a son of Prof Anthony Anwuka, the minister of education state. Their wedding took place in 2014.
Governor Okorocha has now released a public statement rejecting the appointment, on behalf of his daughter. It reads below:
GOVERNMENT OF IMO STATE PRESS RELEASE
RE: THE APPOINTMENT OF MRS UJU ROCHAS ANWUKA INTO THE BOARD OF FEDERAL COLLEGE OF EDUCATION (TECH) OMOKU
-His Excellency Governor Rochas Okorocha Rejects the Appointment.
The attention of the Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has been drawn to the publication listing one of the daughters, Mrs. Uju Rochas Anwuka as a member of the Board of the Federal College of Education (Tech), Omoku.
And it is important to swiftly state, with every sense of concern, that the governor had read about the appointment like every other Nigerian because he was never consulted or briefed on the appointment and that is why the whole thing looks suspicious.
To the governor, the appointment was obviously not done in good faith. Whoever was the brain behind the appointment did so out of unbridled mischief. Otherwise, the person behind the appointment would have had the courtesy of either informing the father or the mother.
The truth of the matter is that the governor’s daughter does not need the appointment. The governor has therefore asked whoever was behind the appointment to withdraw it since the daughter would not have needed the appointment, even if he had not become governor.

Indeed, the governor has the feeling that whoever was behind the appointment did it with something else at the back of his or her mind, otherwise the person would have acted well his or her part by informing him or the mother or even the daughter herself.
The daughter and the entire family reject the appointment.
