Imo state Governor, Rochas Okorocha has denied reports claiming he defected from All Progressives Congress (APC) to Action Alliance (AA).
Some reports had it that Okorocha had announced his decision to join his aggrieved son-in-law, Uche Nwosu at AA during the New Year Crossover Service in Government House.
However, Okorocha debunked these claims in a press statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo.
Okorocha’s response to the claims
The statement maintained that Okorocha remains blameless and is being framed by desperate politicians.
“Imo people do not support stolen tickets and that is why all those who stole the guber tickets of their parties for the 2019 election cannot fly. ‘They have become stranded and looking for who to blame for their woes or misfortune. They know this fact. Imo people do not support anything stolen. That was the reason they dealt with 419ers in 1997.’
“It was out of frustration that those concerned came up with the story of Governor Okorocha leaving APC for AA, which is not true”
Okorocha does not play hide and seek games- Onwuemeodo.
Okorocha’s aide noted that “It is very interesting that nobody has accused Rochas of non-performance and nobody has challenged him on his constant claim that he has achieved more than those before him put together. The only blackmail tool they have is the son-in-law issue. And nobody has gone to Court to say that a man from Nkwerre LGA cannot be governor because his in-law from Ideato South LGA is a governor.
“Rochas Okorocha does not play hide and seek game. He has assured that President Muhammadu Buhari would win overwhelmingly in the State and all the APC marketable Candidates, because you cannot force Imo people to vote for someone they know cannot govern them.”
