Rochas Okorocha, likes to pride himself as being the point-man of the All Progressives Congress in the South East.
The Imo state governor believes he was the lone wolf in the South East region, who campaigned for President Muhammadu Buhari, during the last general elections.
So for the South East chapter of the All Progressives Congress, to describe him as being responsible for region’s woes in the last election- cannot be palatable to Okorocha.
The South East APC says Okorocha did not really campaign for the party and President Buhari in the 2015 general elections.
Spokesperson, Osita Okechukwu, on Sunday, released a statement titled ‘Governor Rochas Okorocha neither truly campaigned for President Buhari nor APC.’
“All one can say is that to the best of knowledge, he (Okorocha) neither truly campaigned for President Muhammadu Buhari nor the All Progressives Congress.
I thinks that while we blame Ndigbo for putting all our eggs in one basket, we should blame our leaders who genuinely didn’t campaign for President Buhari nor APC candidates in their domain.
“I challenge Governor Okorocha to tell the world how far he assisted Senator Osita Izunaso for his bid for Orlu Senatorial District, his own constituency, and that of Honourables Uche Onyeguocha and Uwajumogu of Owerri and Okigwe districts respectively.”
“This is a man some of us advised not to run against the zoning convention, that it will deny Ndigbo the chance of producing either the chairman or the vice presidential slot and he refused.
“He thought we are in Nollywood. He should desist from the blame game and accept responsibility for the fate of Ndigbo in Buhari’s appointments.”
If Okorocha worked for APC in the South East, how come we did not even win a single senatorial seat in Imo and the entire zone?
“He should stop this blame game and accept responsibility for the fate that has befallen Ndigbo.”
