Following media reports at the weekend that he is on his way out of the Peoples Democratic Party, the former Imo State Governor, Ikedi Ohakim has said he has no such plans.
Ohakim said he does not intend to join the All Progressive Congress, APC.
A statement by his media aide, Collins Ughalla said the former Governor is displeased with the APC describing it as a party that is dead on arrival.
“Those who have joined the APC in Imo State did so entirely on their own and had no meeting with Dr Ikedi Ohakim prior to or after their joining the APC, nor has it been even suggested to them or anyone else that Dr Ikedi Ohakim intends to join the APC”
“We believe that despite the window dressing going on, events in the state show that the APC is dead on arrival in Imo State. Joining the APC would therefore mean passing a vote of confidence on Governor Okorocha in the face of the pains he has created in Imo State. Ohakim cannot pass a vote of confidence on the Governor by joining the APC” part of the statement reads.
Ohakim said he is not running away from the PDP which he helped to build and also not scared or overshadowed by the ambition any governorship aspirant in the party as insinuated by a local newspaper.
