Oshiomhole Turning APC To Regional Party – Okorocha

Published

on

Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha has accused the National chairman of the All Progressives Congress ( APC), Adams Oshiomhole of turning the party into a regional minority party .

He spoke to State House correspondents yesterday after a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He hinged his assertions on the premise that the APC does not have a governor in the south east, saying it was a calculated attempt to frustrate the region.

According to him, the party should also put the south east in their calculations for National Assembly leadership positions,noting that

the nation will not be balanced if South East is not carried along in the affairs of legislature.

He stated that the South East is a key primary zone in the country and if they don’t get the Senate presidency, the deputy senate slot should be ceded to them.

He said: “I have been watching carefully what is happening in the

National Assembly, it’s a very interesting drama. But all I ask of them is that they should consider the South East in their calculations.

“This nation will not be properly balanced if South East is not carried along properly in the affairs of the National Assembly.Nobody

seems to be talking about the South East, it looks like the South East doesn’t have a place anymore, that is wrong, politically speaking and that is not good for APC.

“Because there is going to be a bigger APC after President Muhammadu Buhari must have left the seat. My fear now is that APC might have a serious setback in 2023 because the Oshiomhole – led executive is actually turning APC into a regional minority party which shouldn’t be because of his mistakes.

 

“Right now in the whole South East, we don’t have an APC governor. So

if there is any discussion in Nigeria now within the APC governors and

President Muhammadu Buhari, there would be nobody from the South East.

 

“This is what the APC chairman has done in the South East.I think it’s

a capital attempt to frustrate the efforts of the South East but I

appeal to every Nigerian to support the cause of the South East –

their cause germane and it should be supported in whatever position

that is due them.

 

They shouldn’t think about giving South East, whatever position for

giving sake. You can’t just wake up and give them any position. South

East is a key primary zone in this country and if we don’t get the

number one seat, we should get the number two seat.

 

The Imo governor also said because of the antics of the APC chairman,

the party does not have a counselor in Imo State.

 

He noted” No he is the one that is behind all these impositions, can

you imagine, as I speak to you the APC candidate in Imo State did not

win a seat, APC does not have a councilor in Imo State now, it does

not even have a House Member.

 

‘’But the AA candidate has eight seats in the Imo State House of

Assembly, two Federal House and they have one senator about to come to

the senate. This is why internal democracy must be respected, let the

will of the people prevail rather than this imposition.

 

‘’It is unfortunate what has happened in Imo State. At least, I have

been vindicated for the fact that I said the APC candidate they are

imposing on Imo people is not popular, he came from the opposition’’.
