Governor Rochas Okorochas Reportedly Dumps APC For DPP [Details]

Report from multiple sources gives indication that Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has finalised his plans of dumping the ruling APC for DPP after APC failed to pick his in law Nwosu as its Governorship candidate.

This is coming after his Chief of Staff and son-in-law defected from the All Progressives Congress to the Democratic Peoples’ Party (DPP).

Nwosu and some members of the state House of Assembly, as well as some of Governor Okorocha’s aides have defected.

Their defection is as a result of the fall out of the APC governorship primaries in the state in which Nwosu failed to emerge as the party’s gubernatorial candidate.

He said:

“What happened in Imo was a clear case of injustice, where Uche Nwosu won the primary and was robbed of the ticket.

“This injustice must be addressed. However, in spite of the fact that my aides are leaving the party, I am still a member of APC and will not leave the party.

“I tried to persuade them not to leave, but they have made up their minds. I have done what I can to make them remain in the party, they disobeyed me. I don’t have any moral justification to stop them.

Michelle Obama reveals what occupied her mind after leaving Donald Trump’s inauguration

Michelle Obama has revealed what she was thinking after Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration in January 2017.

The former first lady was a guest on Jimmy Fallon’s ‘The Tonight Show’ on Tuesday, December 18. During the show, Fallon asked Mrs Obama what she was thinking as she boarded Air Force One with her husband, Barack Obama, following the inaguration.

Michelle immediately replied:

Bye, Felicia.
The phrase “Bye Felicia” originates from the 1995 film Friday, and has since become widely used as a term to dismiss an unwanted person.

Michelle’s reply was met with rapturous applause and cheers from the audience and a drum roll from the talk show’s resident band The Roots.

Michelle added:

A lot was going on that day. That was a day.

While discussing her book Becoming with Fallon, Mrs Obama also spoke about the fact that she and her husband had previously been through marriage counselling. She explained that all marriages require dedication and commitment, regardless of how happy they may seem from the outside.

She said:

I want young people to know that marriage is work, even the best marriages require work.
Michelle said she had initially decided to take her husband to marriage counselling in order to iron out his shortcomings, as opposed to seeking guidance for their marriage together. But, she soon realised that both of them had a responsibility to work on their relationship.

The mother-of-two said:

I was one of those wives who thought, ‘I’m taking you to marriage counselling so you can be fixed, Barack Obama.’ Because I was like, ‘I’m perfect.’ I was like, ‘Dr X. please fix him.’

And then our counsellor looked over at me. I was like, ‘What are you looking at? I’m perfect.’

Marriage counselling was a turning point for me understanding that it wasn’t up to my husband to make me happy.

That I had to learn how to fill myself up and have to put myself higher on my priority list.
