Oshiomhole blasts Okorocha, says he's an embarrassment to APC

The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has described Rochas Okorocha, governor of Imo state, as an embarrassment to the ruling party.

Oshiomhole said this at a press conference in Abuja after Okorocha accused him of working against the interest of the party and making the APC lose five million voters.

“Okorocha’s action is against the Christian community in Imo state and also an embarrassment to APC… we are not ready to join him in antagonising his people,” Oshiomhole said.

“Yesterday, I watched Okorocha on television urging me to obey the rule of law but we followed due process to rescue him because the congresses conducted by my predecessor swept Okorocha out of the system. We thought it wise to restore due process and ordered fresh congress in the state.

“If Governor Rochas chose to relocate to the villa and use the ground of villa to try to intimidate me to create a dynasty, I will uphold the best interest of APC members and indeed of APC people in Imo state.”

Oshiomhole said the desperation of Okorocha to pick a senate ticket and a governorship ticket for his son-in-law amounted to turning Imo into his family dynasty.

He added that the NWC had met and decided to submit the name of Hope Uzondima to INEC as the party’s governorship candidate of Imo.

Uzondima was declared winner of a primary conducted by an NWC committee headed by Ahmed Gulak but the APC leadership had disbanded the panel and ordered a fresh primary which never held.
