In a report by Punch, Mrs Anwuka was appointed by the Federal Government as a member of the college’s board but her father had turned down the appointment.
Okorocha, who rejected the appointment, alleged that the appointment was not done in good faith, describing it as “unbridled mischief.”
In a statement issued in Owerri, on Friday, May 26, 2017 by Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary,Sam Onwuemeodo, the governor alleged he was not consulted before his daughter’s name was announced a a board member of the federal institution.
The statement partly read “To the governor, the appointment was obviously not done in good faith. Whoever was the brain behind the appointment did so out of unbridled mischief. Otherwise, the person behind the appointment would have had the courtesy of either informing the father or the mother.
“The truth of the matter is that the governor’s daughter does not need the appointment.
“The governor has therefore asked whoever was behind the appointment to withdraw it since the daughter would not have needed the appointment, even if he (Okorocha) had not become governor.
“Indeed, the governor has the feeling that whoever was behind the appointment did it with something else at the back of his or her mind; otherwise, the person would have acted well by informing him or the mother or even the daughter herself. The daughter and the entire family reject the appointment.”
