Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State has stated that his counterpart from Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has not dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking on Channels TV, the governor disclosed that Okorocha has not left the ruling party because of the respect he has for President Muhamadu Buhari.
He said though Okorocha may have been aggrieved with his travails in the party, he remained a member of APC.
Bagudu stated that despite Okorocha’s anger with the party, he was still the Chairman of Progressives Governors’ Forum.
“Chief Rochas Okorocha has enormous regards to President Muhammadu Buhari. He respects his party to the extent that he has not left his party and he still believes in his party.
“He was not happy maybe about some things that have happened to him or he perceived has happened to him and I think he has been very careful to draw the distinction,” he stated.
This is coming at a time Okorocha accused the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and members of the party of witch-hunting him.
He disclosed that the evil he feared while in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had befallen him ten times in the APC.
