PDP Governors are Secretly working for APC - Okorocha

Opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as "insensitive" for organising a political rally in Umuahia, Abia State on Tuesday while Nigerians in Benue state get slaughtered by killer herdsmen.

Governor Okorocha disclosed this at the party's rally at Umuahia Township Stadium in Abia State where he drew more support from the Igbos to support President Muhammadu Buhari for a second time bid.

" The bad days are coming to an end; the good days are beginning", he declared.

Chairman of the party in the state, while welcoming guests promised to ensure that the state was swept by APC in 2019. Ikpeazu is under bondage.

Kalu also vowed to use all resources at his disposal to deliver Abia to APC come 2019.

Okorocha who asked Igbos to be careful not to make the mistake they (Igbos) made in 2015, urged them to shun regional politics if they must be in the mainstream and benefit from it.


Kalu said Gov. Ikpeazu "is under political bondage" and urged those holding him captive to release him so he could work for the people.

" If they try to touch the decamping lawmakers they will see the federal might in us", he boasted, adding that "nobody can do anything". Donatus Nwankpa recalled how hard it was for the party to find its footing at the formative stage in the state, but stated that the population and array of political bigwigs in the party show that the members of the State Working Committee have been able to do their work perfectly.

Other defectors were four members of the state house of assembly, namely: Chief Ikedi Ezekwesiri (APGA) (Umunneochi constituency), Minority Leader, Chief Solomon Okogbuo (APGA) (Bende south constituency) and Chief Theophelus Ugboajah (APGA) (Ikwuano constituency).

He claimed that APC had within its two years of being in power, done for South East zone what PDP could not do in 16 years citing the ongoing rehabilitaion work on the Enugu- Port Harcourt express way, as well as Enugu- Onitsha express way as some of the achievements of APC.

The Chairman went further to say that Nigerians must be ready to stop APC and not allow them to rule beyond 2019 else, that the country may be thrown into chaos, drawing inference from the crisis that has been spreading all over the country, involving Fulani herdsmen and other ethno religious crisis which the President is treating with kid glove.

It was learnt that security has been beefed up in the capital city in preparation for the visit of Buhari and Osinbajo.
