Opposition to Buhari, APC will affect our political future – Okorocha warns Igbos
Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha of Imo has stated that that the political future of the Igbo race can only be guaranteed in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Okorocha, who is the Chairman of APC Governors’ Forum, said that South-East could not afford to be in opposition party, and urged all Igbos living outside the zone to join the APC.
A statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, on Saturday, said “All indigenes of the South-East geopolitical zone should seize the opportunity offered to them by the ongoing registration of APC members across the nation and register in mass in the party.”
He noted that the Igbos had no better option at the moment than to join the APC, warning against any form of opposition to the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“APC is at the centre and in most states of the federation and what the south easterners should do is to wake up and identify with the government that has come to stay,” he said.
Okorocha, who solicited peaceful registration in the zone, warned party leaders to avoid rancour and utterances that could bring the party into disrepute.
“Very soon, we will be confronted with Anambra governorship election and we must maintain the peace and unity this party has enjoyed since inception in other to make wave in the election,” he said.
The governor said this was not the time for leaders of the party to flex undue political muscles.
According to him, what should be important to any patriotic party member was how to win election in the four remaining states in the South-East.
