Okorocha who played a key role in the formation of the APC spoke against the backdrop of the party’s Ward Congress in the state
Executive Governor of Imo state, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has accused the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by the National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun of plotting to destroy the party with the recent crisis occuring in the party. Okorocha who played a key role in the formation of the APC spoke against the backdrop of the party’s Ward Congress in the state, two weeks ago where materials meant for the exercise were allegedly ‘stolen’ by some party officials.
The Governor who is also the chairman of the APC Governors’ Forum said his opposition to the tenure elongation of the current National Ward Chiarman, Oyegun’s leadership was responsible for his current crisis.
The Governor released a statement through his Chief Secretary, he said, “We commend the police for the good job. We also know that others who took part in the stealing of the Congresses materials will be unmasked as time goes on. APC members in the state are in high spirits. They want to see those who let them down and caused undue tension in the state and also created bad media reports for the state, to pay dearly for their wickedness and insensitivity.”
The Governor also commended the Nigeria Police Force over the arrest of four suspects who allegedly stole sensitive materials meant for the ward and local government elections of the APC in Imo State. Okorocha said the arrests vindicated his earlier claim of stolen materials.
