Former Imo State Governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha, may be planning a fresh move as he has visited Rivers State two times in one month.

In the first visit, the former governor who is now a Senator was in Rivers State to commission a project.

But this time, his visit to the South-South State is to commiserate with Governor Wike over the demise of his uncle.

The late Chief Ihunwo Wike who passed on at the age of 87, was until his demise, the Eze Epara Kwurume Chukwuokahia Obasinwo IV of Rumuepirikom Clan in Apara kingdom of Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.

But a source who wants his name to remain anonymous said Okorocha’s latest closeness to Wike and other PDP chieftains was an attempt to secure his political future as his place in the APC cannot be guaranteed.

The source said, “Okorocha is trying to take Imo back and he is using all arsenals within his reach to activate that,” he said.
