I wont let irresponsible people take over from me – Rochas Okorocha

The Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has vowed that he
would not let those who called him Boko Haram and an Hausa
man hijack the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the State.
He claimed he was called those names when he was working with
President Muhammadu Buhari and Bola Tinubu to form the party.
Okorocha, who spoke to Vanguard through his Special Assistant on
Security, Dr. Chris Chukwuemeka Ekwueme, said it was impossible
for his opponents in the state chapter of the APC to hijack the
party and its structure which he built while they were “busy
struggling for power and positions in other political parties.”
His words, “This is a matter of someone or some people trying to
reap where they did not sow. They just came out like a bolt out of
the blues to gatecrash into our great party, the APC.
“It is obvious that they had hidden agendas hence they joined our
party just months to the election.
“These were the same set of people who destroyed the PDP and
they now want to do the same to our party by attempting to hijack
it’s structure months to the poll. Imolites are resisting their plot
and they will be defeated and put to shame.
“His Excellency is a peace lover and a true democrat who doesn’t
want or love to do things outside the ambit of the law. He believes
in the rule of law hence, he decided to take the matter to court
while the internal mechanism of the party at national level is also
looking at ways to resolve the issue.
“They wanted His Excellency to employ crude means like they are
doing by using thugs to foment trouble here and there. They have
indirectly trying to make the State ungovernable but the good
people of Imo know and trust their governor.
“We will pursue this course legally and ensure that victory comes.
“It would be recalled that when His Excellency was building our
great party, these people labeled him all manner of unprintable
“They said, he was not Igbo. They claimed he was selling out Imo
State to strangers. They said he was working for Boko Haram.
“In fact, a lot was said then. But today, they want to benefit from
the efforts and sweat of the man they condemned when he was
sacrificing and spending his time, energy and money travelling and
touring the nation and overseas, holding high profile meetings and
working for APC.
