Okorocha Laments Unfair Treatment By APC
Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District, Rochas Okorocha has spoken out on the perceived ill-treatment been meted to him by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Okorocha, who is the immediate past governor of Imo State, said the party was not been fair to him despite the personal sacrifices and financial contributions he has made to the party.
Okorocha in his chat with newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday, challenged the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, stating he was instrumental in installing him as party chairman.
The Senator further lamented, noting that he didn’t expect the kind of ‘evil reward’ he is getting from the party.
“If you recall, I was called all sorts of names like ‘Okoro Hausa’ and that I was building mosques and all that were associated with it,” he said.
“But I kept deaf ears because I felt that I was on the right course with my people.
“I was instrumental to bringing Adams Oshiomhole as national chairman of the APC and he cannot deny that fact.
“I took the troubles of APC in the South East and the APC I see now can easily tell Gov. Emeka Ihedioha to come to its fold if only he can fight Rochas.
“That is really an unfortunate situation and it has weakened my spirit and my faith to the party because I thought we are family working to advance the course of this nation.
“But the way it is going, it does not look like there will be a solution. And there seems to be silence everywhere.
Despite the lamentations, Okorocha, however, stated that he loves the APC and remains a committed member of the party.
”I don’t even know my stand about my suspension because for some time, I don’t know what is happening in APC.
“But for the silence all over, it just looks as if it is normal.
“So, I am just waiting and thinking of what next to do but I am still a member of APC and I love the party and will support it,” Okorocha said.
