The fireworks between the leadership of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA and the Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has taken a new dimension.


APGA National Chairman, Victor Oye had tongue lashed the Imo Governor at a news conference in Abuja vowing he will never be allowed to rejoin APGA “because his hands are not clean”

In his response through a statement by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemedo, the Governor advised APGA “to wind up and fuse into the All Progressive Congress, if the party cannot fly again without brandishing Governor Rochas Okorocha’s name in a quite unfortunate manner”

Tjhe statement reads in part ”Innocent Nigerians who have been following events in the past three months would agree with us that the APGA elements have decided to be using Governor Okorocha’s name to market their party but in a very wrong way. First, they came up with the ridiculous story of Okorocha wanting to return to APGA. And they never said anything that could convince anybody to believe them” the statement stated.

The statement pointed out that ” It is obvious that Chief Oye and his cohorts in APGA are yet to recover from the deep cut the exit Governor Okorocha inflicted on APGA, for the merger that saw the emergence of APC. They are yet to recover from the shock occasioned by that patriotic action by Governor Okorocha and they can’t help the sitaution, aside talking about Governor Okorocha and APGA as if something is left with the party”

” Infact, Oye and co are using Okorocha’s name as marketing strategy for APGA. He could do that in a more refined manner than using insults and abuses. Governor Okorocha took the soul of APGA to APC and he did it in the overall interest of Ndi Igbo and Nigeria. He deserves accolades from reasonable sons and daughters of Igbo land”part of the statement stated.
