Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma has begged his predecessor, Rochas Okorocha for forgiveness.

Uzodinma said he has extended an olive branch to all aggrieved stakeholders in the State, including Okorocha.

The Governor, who disclosed this while speaking on Channels TV on Monday, stressed that he has nothing personal against the Imo West Senator.

Uzodinma urged those aggrieved to team up with him in working for the State.

The Governor described his predecessor as his brother who took over from him as a Senator.

“Okorocha is my brother. He is occupying the seat I left in the Senate. I have nothing personal against him.

“All I’m asking is even if I have done anything that does not go down well with him or anybody, forgive and forget. Let us come together to work for our people,” he said.

Since assuming office, Okorocha and Uzodinma have experienced a frosty relationship.

Some security operatives had in January arrested Okorocha’s son-in-law, Uche Nwosu.

After Nwosu’s arrest, Okorocha had accused Uzodinma of being responsible for the killing by unknown gunmen in the State.
