Rochas Okorocha Says No Plan To Dump APC
The governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has said he has no plans to leave the All Progressives Congress APC. He made this declaration while reacting to the pictorial image being circulated on the social media, depicting his discussions with some officials of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), The Guardian reports.
Okorocha has been placed on suspension by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In his reaction, at the weekend, Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Sam Onwuemeodo, urged the public to disregard such picture, accusing his political detractors as being behind such postings, clarifying that the picture in question was taken long ago.
The statement said:
“This photograph is as old as the APC government in 2015. But those who were declared the winner of the governorship election in lmo with votes from the three local councils of Mbaise have been making fruitless efforts to blackmail Governor Rochas Okorocha to see if that could help them go free with their electoral fraud.
They posted this picture on social media with a badly written statement and falsely claiming that the governor was in a PDP meeting today. ”
Okorocha said he was optimistic that any stolen mandate would be retrieved at the appropriate time.
