Addressing newsmen Tuesday in Owerri, Onumo, a onetime President General, Imo Youth Assembly IYA, stated that  there was no basis for him to accept the offer after the governor had  impoverished the  people of the state  via his anti-people policies and programS

Onumo, equally cited the alleged unfair treatment of medical practitioners in the state’s owned health institutions by the Okorocha’s led administration as part of reasons for rejecting the offer.

According to him, “Okorocha’s government is a failed government and since inception eight years ago, it has openly shown disdain for due process and I do not think I will want to associate myself with such a government at any level whatsoever.” he stated.

Okorocha had being at logger head with several professional associations in the state over members welfare, including Nigeria medical Association NMA.
