Governor Rochas Okorocha suggests that southeast governors may join the APC
– He says Ndigbo played a dangerous politics in 2015 but we must correct that in 2019
Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state has said two governors from the southeast zone will be defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Okorocha who made the disclosure on Thursday, August 9, said the governors from the southeast zone had unanimously agreed to move in one direction, the Nation reports.
He however, stopped short of mentioning the name of the two governors who had resolved to join the ruling party.
“The insinuation that Southeast governors from other political parties will work for President Muhammadu Buhari for President and work for their candidates in the governorship election is not acceptable, you are either a member of the APC or not,” Okorocha said.
“You will agree with me that Ndigbo played a dangerous politics in 2015 but we must correct that in 2019.”
In a related report, Governor Rochas Okorocha has said he stands a better chance of being the first president of Nigeria from the southeast region.
Okorocha told journalist during a breakfast meeting at the government house that he won’t be relying on the support of the people from the southeast to actualise his ambition.
He accused politicians from the southeast of what he called the pull-him-down attitude. He said the biggest opposition to his presidential ambition will come from the southeast zone.
