APC Crisis: Okorocha Warns Oyegun

The Governor Of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has accused the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by the National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun of plotting to derail the party.

Okorocha spoke against the backdrop of the party’s ward congress in the state, two weeks ago, where materials meant for the exercise were allegedly ‘stolen’ by some party officials.

Okorocha, who doubles as chairman of the APC Governors’ Forum, said his opposition to the tenure elongation of the current NWC was responsible for his purported persecution by the Oyegun-led leadership.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, the governor maintained that with the names already mentioned by those arrested, he has been vindicated.

“We commend the police for a good job. We also know that others who took part in the stealing of the Congresses materials will be unmasked as time goes on.

“APC members in the state are in high spirits. They want to see those who let them down and caused undue tension in the state and also created bad media reports for the state, to pay dearly for their wickedness and insensitivity,” he said.

The governor commended the Nigeria Police Force over the arrest of four suspects who allegedly stole sensitive materials meant for the ward and local government congresses of the APC in Imo State.

Okorocha said the arrests vindicated his earlier claim that materials were stolen.
