…Says APGA serving interest of Ndigbo
OWERRI—Imo State Governor, Chief Rochas Okorocha, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of stalling development of the state in the past 12 years.
Okorocha, who levelled the accusation against the PDP when he played host to political stakeholders from Ehime Mbano local council area of the state, also insisted that there was no tangible thing the state could boast of in the 12 years of PDP administration.
“PDP’s 12-year rule is a colossal disaster. All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, is an Igbo political party, serving as an Igbo man’s identity”, Okorocha said.
Explaining his stance, the governor said every tribe in the country had a political party it identified with; stressing that Ndigbo should not be an exception.
While saying that he was one of the founding members of PDP, as well as paid for the party’s first office in Abuja, the governor however, said he had solid reasons for leaving the PDP.
Okorocha said he had blocked avenues through which Imo funds trickled into the private pockets of godfathers, adding that he was facing opposition because of this singular act.
