Governor Okorocha Refutes Report He Dumped APC For APGA

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has refuted reports that he was planning to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC) for another party.
The governor said he was not under any pressure or compulsion to leave a house he built for other people to occupy.Okorocha, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, said, “Aside from the concocted story of his leaving APC for the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) trending on the social media, he had also been inundated with calls from media practitioners trying to confirm the authenticity or otherwise of the source-less tale.”
The spokesman said Okorocha was one of the principal founders of APC, adding that 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 (Okorocha) 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 the APC.
“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 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 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 10-man coalition. They are been hunted by their inglorious actions,” the spokesman concluded.
