Days after the reintroduced Ahiajoku lecture series was organized by the Imo State government, the dust raised by a comment against the former governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha by Femi-Kayode is yet to abate.
Femi Fani- Kayode, otherwise known as FFK has taken a swipe at the former governor who he described as an “intellectual barbarian”
Speaking at the event when invited to make a comment as a guest, FFK raised concern why Okorocha didn’t hold the Ahiajoku for the eight years he was in office.
Moments after the speech, divergent views erupted from different quarters. While some were in defense of the speech made by FFK, others objected and condemned the act.
Majority of those who spoke in favour of the comment were of the view that from what Okorocha did in Imo in the past years, FFK’s quotation aptly fits into his legacy left behind. Those in support of the FFK’s posture about Okorocha are mainly those opposed to the immediate past administration and those found in Ihedioha side.
Not satisfied with the language used to address the former governor, his allies, comprising former aides and associates launched a counter-attack by describing FFK in unfair language.
Unpalatable statements and write ups against FFK have also been raised to diminish his status in the society.
The media team of Okorocha is not left out as they also launched a verbal war using the conventional and new media to diminish FFK.
