Imo state governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has assured Nigerians that the newly formed All Progressive Congress (APC) by the coalition of major opposition parties will fix and return Nigeria in the path of progress.
Governor Okorocha who seized the opportunity of rendering his two year account of stewardship to Imolites to speak on his political future and recent political development in the country, maintained that APC would among other things balance the political equation as well as offer credible alternative so far as leadership is concern in Nigeria.
He said “let me throw more light on why I have decided to join and promote APC. It is a clear fact that our dear country under the rulership of the PDP for 14 years has not fared well. The formation of APC is not only timely but an intervention that will balance the political equation in Nigeria. The ruling PDP has no doubt taken all of us for granted for the 14 years it has governed Nigeria and that largely informed the reason why the progressives are presenting APC to Nigerians as an alternative platform that will enthrone good governance. By the APC is finally elected to lead this great country of African continent, Nigeria will be fixed and ultimately restored on the path of growth, job creation, industrialisation and overall good governance in the country”.
Gov. Okorocha further took a swipe on PDP for relegating the people of south east to the background in the power equation of the country.
“it is regrettable that PDP has relegated all of us in the south east to the background. It is true that Igbo man is not occupying any of the five principal positions in the country which includes the President, Vice President, Senate president, Speaker federal House of Representatives and National chairman of the party” he said.
He called on Ndigbo to embrace APC which he insisted is one of the surest steps to regain the political relevance of Ndigbo in Nigeria.
