Embattled Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, yesterday, dispelled speculations and rumours making the rounds that he was planning to rejoin the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, as he said he would never go back to the party.
Okorocha spoke in a release signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo and made available to newsmen in Owerri. The governor boasted that when he left APGA, he had moved to APC with the major stakeholders of APGA.
This came as a Federal High Court sitting in Owerri, adjourned till June 22, 2018 , a case challenging the outcome of the state congress of the Imo State All Progressives Congress, APC.
According to the release, ”Governor Okorocha is one of the principal founders of APC and when he took the mainstream of APGA to join the merger that gave birth to APC, he was not under any pressure to do so. He even took that action at the risk of his second tenure.
”He became the propeller of APC in Imo and the whole of South East, mobilising people for the party in Imo, Ebonyi, Abia, Enugu and Anambra States. He was the rallying point and he did that in the overall interest of the South-East and indeed, APC.”
