OWERRI—Imo Progressives and Consultative Assembly, IPCA, has urged President Goodluck Jonathan and the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to resist Governor Rochas Okorocha’s alleged subtle moves to rejoin the party and seek re-election under its platform in 2015.
The group in a statement by Nze Benjamin Irohah and Benjamin Ogoke, IPCA Coordinator and Secretary, respectively in Owerri, claimed “Governor Okorocha would definitely become a liability to the people, as Imolites would not hesitate to desert PDP and seek alternative platforms to pursue their political ambitions.”
The statement reads in part: “Our attention has been drawn to the clandestine moves by Governor Rochas Okorocha to rejoin the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and seek for re- election as governor of Imo State under its platform in 2015 after he had left the party on two occasion since the return of democracy in 1999.
“This permutation we gathered was hatched upon realizing that his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, has become the biblical ‘forbidden fruit’ in the South East, as part of the designed strategies to continue his inglorious Government of the Family, by the Family and for the Family beyond May 29, 2015.
“Information available to us suggests that Governor Okorocha has already recruited some powerful individuals to besiege and possibly convince President Goodluck Jonathan into believing that re-admitting him into the PDP will automatically destroy and unsettle APC as well as diffuse any form of opposition against his re- election in south east and some northern states.”
