The future of the All Progressive Congress, APC came to the fore on Tuesday when former Imo State Governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha expressed concern about the party when President Muhammadu Buhari’s Presidency ends in 2023.
He however said he has never contemplated leaving the party.
Speaking to newsmen in Abuja, the Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District, also spoke on his sacrifices to expand the membership base of the party in the South East.
He said the party rather repaid him for his efforts with evil.
” My only worry is that the party may disappear with the exit of President Buhari if the ongoing injustices are not addressed.
” Unlike other governors from the North that rode on the name Muhammadu Buhari to power, the name of Buhari had a negative effect on my campaign for second term.
“But I was determined to overcome that because I knew what we stood to gain.
” If anything, the party repaid me evil for good. There was no challenge I did not face or bad name I was not called in my State.
” They brought in people who fought me when I was building the party at State level to fight me over control of the party. I don’t want to talk about it but my party did not treat me well”
