His words,'We have watched with concern and disappointment the wilful and unconscionable desecration of the revered and sacred Traditional institution in Igbo land. As a responsible and credible opposition party,the United Progressives Party[UPP], cannot stand by and watch Owelle Rochas Okorocha, the Governor of Imo state,desecrate the traditional institution with unbridled recklessness'.
