Okorocha opens up on defection to PDP, Slams Uzodimma

Earlier, Rochas Okorocha has debunked unconfirmed claims that he is about to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Okorohca who spoke through his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, on Tuesday, July 13, alleged that the report is being spread by loyalists of Governor Hope Uzodinma who aim at using blackmail to force him out of the All Progressives Congress.

The senator said the fake news was ill-timed because it came soon after he led other APC chieftains in Imo to the ruling party’s national secretariat in Abuja.

The media aide added that there would not have been an APC in the state if his principal did not take the risk he took while in power.
