Former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has said that the APC party does not exist anymore. He also congratulated the people of Edo State for rejecting injustice.
NAIJA NEWS NG reports that Rochas Okorocha said when he saw Adams Oshiomhole and Hope Uzodimma leading the campaign in Edo State he knew there won’t be victory for APC .
Rochas Okorocha said : ”It is not only PDP members that voted for Obaseki even All Progressive Congress members also voted for him. EDO people did not vote for APC or PDP ,they voted against injustice. Edo people are not docile. They voted for justice to be done in EDO state”.
Rochas Okorocha also said that the All Progressive Congress as a party is no longer in existence, he said what exists now is just respect for the person of Muhammadu Buhari. Read his words below :
“Permit me to give you the inside of All Progressive Congress , this word APC was formed by four major political parties that had governors, one was the CPC led by President Muhammadu Buhari, ACN led by Ahmed Tinubu, ANPP led by Ogbonnaya Onu who all brought their structure, APGA led by me brought in our structure. Every other person fell into this structure. The PDP group came in and joined us. I gave the name APC. I designed that logo and that was the beginning of the party and we had understanding.
Rochas Okorocha narrated the formation of the APC.
“That is the party you call APC and unless we go back to where it all started, APC can never see the light of the day and that was how we started and that was what brought President Muhammadu Buhari to office.
“You cannot rule out the role of these four key people, then CPC has only one governor in Nasarawa, APGA had only one governor, ACN came with the chunk of the governors and ANPP had a few. And we shared the first positions equally among these four parties. Now the founding fathers of the part are relegated to the backgrounds and people are coming with different interests making us play the same kind of politics that PDP played,” Okorocha said.
Rochas Okorocha added, “There is no more APC, what we have is the respect for President Muhammadu Buhari, that is what is keeping us together. What we have is our respect for the person of President Buhari and we still believe that something can be done.
“That trust and respect is what we still call APC, outside that, respect for President Buhari and the trust and belief that he could wake up one day and correct all these injustices and make it fine. That is the only thing that is keeping the APC, if not that, I don’t think there is anything like APC because people are beginning to get fed up. Again, PDP is not even better, the party has its own challenges.
