The sudden ill-health of Gov. Rochas Okorocha’s son, Aham Brendan Okorocha, during the festive period has cast a shadow on the Imo State first family.
Aham, who is the first son of Gov. Okorocha few days to Christmas slumped and was immediately flown to London for medical care. His ill-health was wrapped in secrecy and was only discussed in hushed comments in the circle of government officials in the state.
But it came to light on Sunday during the South East zonal meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains in Ebonyi State where Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu blew the lid off it when he was advancing reason for Gov. Okorocha’s absence at the meeting.
Onu said, “I had informed Governor Okorocha of this meeting and he had promised to be here.
“The governor however, called me back days after our conversation to explain that his son had taken ill and he will be taking him to London for treatment, and, as such, would not be able to attend the meeting. We pray that his son recovers quickly.”
