Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has flaunted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is nothing in the South East without him.
The senator made this known while responding to reports in which the Director-General of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), and a chieftain of the APC, Osita Okechukwu blamed him for destroying the APC in South-East.
An announcement marked by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, asserted that the VON DG had proceeded with his media assaults on Okorocha, saying "notwithstanding when one had felt that with the 2019 decisions over, he ought to have halted his affront having seen that the race had demonstrated that without him (Okorocha) there was in no way like All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South-East as a rule and Imo specifically."
The announcement peruses: "Yet before the 2019 race those playing the legislative issues of 2023 of every 2019 enrolled men like Osita Okechukwu against Governor Okorocha, extorting him at any rate opportunity they had and gave the mistaken impression that without Okorocha, they could fly in Imo and South-East for the most part with APC.
"In any case, in the 2019 decision, the reality represented itself with no issue, that Okorocha genuinely holds the expert of APC both in Imo and in the South-East for the most part. What's more, a cautious take a gander at the 2019 race results demonstrated that Okorocha was in control aside from that with the emergency men like Okechukwu made in Imo APC, INEC exploited that and I did some weird things."
Okorocha said Okechukwu "lost every one of the races for the gathering in his surveying corner, ward and neighborhood government."
The senator, in any case, tested Okechukwu to distribute the consequences of his corner, ward and neighborhood government in every one of the races.
"He doesn't discuss APC in his state, however continually discussing Imo APC since he knows, that is the main state in the South-East APC is grounded before they utilized devilish shakedown and unwarranted purposeful publicity to infuse an infection into the gathering."
