Southeast APC Leaders Fight Dirty: Okorocha Hits Okechukwu



The acrimony between two leading All Progressives Congress, APC leaders in the Southeast, Rochas Okorocha and Osita Okechukwu continued on Sunday after the Imo State governor blasted his traducer as a serial election loser who should preoccupy himself with rebuilding the party in his ward.

Okorocha’s outburst followed published comments attributed to Okechukwu, the Director-General of the Voice of Nigeria, (VON) where he accused Okorocha of causing the implosion of the party in the Southeast.

The APC has moved from controlling one state to nothing in the Southeast after the intrigues that trailed the party’s governorship primaries that led Okorocha to back his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu’s governorship aspiration on the platform of his old party, Action Alliance. The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP slipped in through the melee to win the seat.

Reacting to Okechukwu’s claim, Okorocha in a press statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemedo said:

“Incidentally, and interestingly too, Osita Okechukwu is playing his own politics on the pages of newspapers and most of the times attacking Governor Okorocha unprovoked. He lost all the elections in his booth, ward and local government. On the day of the Presidential election he was warned by the PDP guys not to come out and he never came out.

“We challenge him to publish the results of his booth, ward and local government in all the elections. He does not talk about APC in his State, but always talking about Imo APC because he knows, that is the only State in the South-East APC is grounded before they used wicked blackmail and unfounded propaganda to inject virus into the party.

“And all those who won elections in Imo on the ticket of APC are all members of the Rescue Mission Government which Owelle superintends. The Action Alliance Candidates who won their elections were also those displaced in APC including the governorship Candidate of Party (AA) Uche Nwosu who won the governorship election with the correct votes and not with inflated figures.

“Finally, Mr. Okechukwu should try to build APC in his ward before continuing his insults on Okorocha.”
