Oshiomhole: Why APC Might End With Buhari – Okorocha

Okorocha

Senator Rochas Okorocha (APC-Imo West) has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) may lose power after the end of President Muhammadu Buhari‘s tenure in 2023.

He made this known in Kano while reacting to the rift between the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole and Governor Godwin Obaseki.

Okorocha said if nothing is done to address the leadership style of APC, the party may not survive the 2023 general election.

The former Imo State governor noted that the ruling party was hurriedly put together to wrestle power from the administration of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Okorocha said: “That is why we came together and formed the All Progressives Congress and we ensured that the party got power in 2015. That was how it was then and we achieved that.

“Right now, I think we should continue with the same pace that we started within 2015 election but that doesn’t seem to be the case. President Muhammadu Buhari gave character to APC.

“He brought his integrity to bear on the party. He made the party what it is in the northern part of the country and the masses of the North who saw him as a true leader, and we all rode on that to achieve that victory, but after the credibility of Buhari into this party, there seem to be no alternative in the same manner that will drive this party to 2023 victory.

“This is why I expressed my concern that if we are not very careful, APC might go with Buhari in 2023, and that will be a very unfortunate situation for the founding fathers of APC. The party needs to show purposeful leadership, show character.”
