The embattled Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has said that he will not leave All Progressive Congress APC for gold-diggers and that no Landlord leaves his house for unfaithful tenants.
Okorocha also said the story of his joining APGA is the creation of the 10-man coalition saying ‘the same people who called him names have begun to market falsehood against him including the fake story of his leaving APC for APGA.
“All these could show the level of frustration on the side of the ten-man Coalition. They are been hunted by their inglorious actions.’
” The Chief Press secretary to the governor, Sam Onwuemeodo in a statement on Tuesday said ‘Okorocha is one of the principal founders of APC. And when he took the mainstream of APGA to join the merger that gave birth to APC, he was not under any pressure to do so. He even took that action at the risk of his second tenure.’
‘He became the propeller of APC in Imo and the whole of South East. Mobilizing people for the party in Imo, Ebony, Abia, Enugu, and Anambra States. He was the rallying point. And he did that in the overall interest of the South-East and indeed, APC.
In a lomg press release Mr. Onwuemeodo said: ‘If Governor Okorocha did not take good percentage of APGA to APC, the party would not have had the kind of national spread it has till today. For that reason, they called him all sorts of derogatory names which Nigerians all know, including Alhaji in Government House, Okoro-Hausa, and Rochas Buhari.
‘When the APC came for campaign in 2015 in Imo and all the states in the South-East he was the point man. Today, APC has become the party to envy. Nobody is again talking about Rochas and Buhari going to use APC to Islamize the Igbos.
‘Today too, the same people who called him names have begun to market falsehood against him including the fake story of his leaving APC for APGA. All these could show the level of frustration on the side of the ten-man Coalition.
They are been hunted by their inglorious actions. ‘One may also wish to know that while the unfounded story of the governor leaving APC is yet to dry, they have also come up with another funny one
