See How Charly Boy Stormed Out During Imo State Govt Organised Tribute For Late Dad (Photos)
Charlyboy at the event
You recall CharlyBoy had earlier on warned politicians against turning his late father's burial into a party thing. Turns out he kept true to his word. Because last Wednesday, Charlyboy stormed out with his family during a colloquium organized in honour of his late father by the Imo State government
Speaking with journalists in Owerri yesterday, Charley Boy explained why he had to do that, accusing Governor Rochas Okorocha of trying to use his father’s burial to score cheap political points.
He said the government held a colloquium in honour of his late father and that despite his earlier warning that the burial should not be politicized, Governor Okorocha gathered all the members of his
political party and wanted to turn the event into an APC rally.
The event, tagged Day of Tributes for Late Oputa, which saw Governor Rochas Okorocha, his deputy, Eze Madumere; Senator Chris Ngige; national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Odigie Oyegun, former deputy governor of Imo State, Dr. Douglas Acholonu, and many dignitaries present held at the newly built International Conference Centre in Owerri.
Trouble however started when the master of the ceremony announced that the next person to speak would be the national chairman of APC, Oyegun. No sooner had the APC boss mounted the rostrum than the angry Charley Boy fumed about how his father’s burial was being turned into APC event. He suddenly rose from his seat and stormed out of the event taking his siblings and family members along.
