Why no APC leader can cage me – Rochas Okorocha

[ad_1]

Rochas Okorocha, the Imo state governor, on Friday said that nobody can cage him politically.

The governor said this through a statement release to newsmen in Owerri, by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Sam Onwuemeodo, who was responding to a statement credited to the Imo APC stakeholders led by Senator Ifeanyi Araraume.

DAILY POST reports that the crisis in the Imo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Wednesday took a new dimension after leading chieftains of the party called on the national leadership of the party to expel Governor Rochas Okorocha from the party.

The statement reads, “The so- called Imo stakeholders can only “cage” Governor Rochas Okorocha like they have claimed in the media in the offices of the National Chairman of the party, Chief John Oyegun and the National Organising Secretary of the Party, Chief Osita Izunaso.

“Who are on vendetta mission against the governor over his innocent and patriotic stand on the issue of tenure elongation.

“And in any case, only ingrates can claim caging the man God used to uplift them politically. All those in the insolvent group called coalition are all beneficiaries of Okorocha’s political successes in Imo.

“If they have the capacity why are they dodging going to the field for the congresses, but they preferred making away with the sensitive materials for the congresses and going into hotels to write results.

“Mind you, Governor Okorocha has never played politics with the elite in the state. And that is part of their anger. The governor’s greatest political base and asset is the grassroots, that is still intact for him. These stakeholders are deceiving themselves. They know they cannot fly.

“Rochas is the biggest asset of APC in the South-East and in Imo in particular. Even today, the only person the party needs to sustain Imo as APC state and make en route into other states in the zone is Rochas Okorocha. Take it or leave it, when the chips are down, the truth will become clearer.”
