APC Chairman Adams Oshiomhole and Okorocha: Okorocha complains about receiving raw deal from the party

Sen. Rochas Okorocha, the former governor of Imo, has lamented his humiliation by his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), in spite of his sacrifices and financial contributions.

Okorocha, the senator representing Imo West Senatorial District, told newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday that he got evil reward from APC for his commitment to the cause of the party especially in the South East.

He noted that he had to go contrary to his kinsmen and political associates just to ensure that the party was placed on a sound footing in Imo and in the South East, but was surprised that his reward was suspension.

“If you recall I was called all sorts of names like ‘Okoro Hausa’ and that I was building mosques and all that were associated with it.

“But I kept deaf ears because I felt that I was on the right course with my people.

“I was instrumental to bringing Adams Oshiomhole as national chairman of the APC and he cannot deny that fact.

“I took the troubles of APC in the South East and the APC I see now can easily tell Gov. Emeka Ihedioha to come to its fold if only he can fight Rochas.

“That is really an unfortunate situation and it has weakened my spirit and my faith in the party because I thought we are family working to advance the cause of this nation.

“But the way it is going, it does not look like there will be a solution. And there seems to be silence everywhere.

”I don’t even know my stand about my suspension because for some time, I don’t know what is happening in APC.

“But for the silence all over, it just looks as if it is normal.

“So, I am just waiting and thinking of what next to do but I am still a member of APC and I love the party and will support it,” Okorocha said.


  1. Having read Okorocha’ interview, I just wonder if he thinks he still occupies DauglasnHose as the ofuta obee! Where everything he says must be true.

  2. You were the one who shook my faith in APC, the concept of change and Nigeria. With your conduct in APC, I almost gave up on this country. As Governor, you were a disgrace to the APC brand.
