APGA Fires Back At Governor Okorocha

APGA Fires Back At Governor Okorocha

The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in a statement on Sunday, September 27, lambasted the governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha over alleged unguarded, caustic and disparaging utterances against the party.

The party scolded the governor for not being eternally grateful to it having come to political limelight through it instead of resorting to verbal attack.

The statement through its national director of publicity, Ifeanacho Oguejiofor, asked Governor Okorocha not to decieve himself that the people of Imo state are happy with his performance, This Day reports.

Describing the governor’s rescue mission slogan as nothing but ‘visionless and rudderless’, the party noted that instead, the mission needs to be truly rescued from crass ineptitude and gross maladministration.

Oguejiofor noted that the party was more than just a political association which nobody can wish away, not even the governor adding that its formation was deep rooted, strong, invincible and made up of a mass movement of true democrats and progressives, which nobody can conquer or destroy.

The party urged the governor to exhibit the trait of probity and not to continually indulge in negative statements against the party.

The party said: “Instead of the governor to be eternally grateful to APGA which emancipated him from his aeon of political bondage, years of unrealised electoral contestation and long gallivanting political wilderness, which his personal quest for power made him to traverse, he chose to commit sacrilege against the party and poured insult on the sensibilities of those APGA faithful and supporters.

“The party is advising Okorocha to stop living in fool’s paradise, as his governance anchored on “rescue mission” is nothing but visionless and rudderless that needs to be truly rescued from crass ineptitude and gross maladministration.

“APGA therefore urges him to go to Anambra state for a tutorial on how to govern a modern state and on how to harness the various abundant potentialities in Imo state.

“The Imo state governor should be told in case he pretends not to be aware, that Imo people are generally disappointed in his awkward style of administration, which caters only to the needs and desires of his in-laws, relations and business partners with his self-deceptive slogan of ‘my people, my people’ instead of ‘my in-laws, my business partners’, which is a baptismal reference of his kind of governance of Imo state.

“Moreover, the man who is at the helm of affairs in Douglas House who is politically naïve should know that governance is not about how loquacious, sophistry and theatrical a governor chooses to be, but how he can positively impact on the welfare and lives of the hoi polloi, which is what the Imo people are in dire need of now, instead of his junketing around.

“He should know that the present national leadership of the party led by Victor Ike Oye, is painstakingly revitalising, reinvigorating and repositioning the party for a strong presence and quick march to take its due political space and position in the body politic, so as to liberate the marginalised and the downtrodden people of Nigeria.”

Oguejiofor added that it is no longer news that the Rochas Okorocha-led government of Imo state lacks the basic managerial skills and ideas on how to govern a state like the one he governs, which he said is richly endowed with both great intellectuals and huge material resources.

Meanwhile, Senator Ighoyota Amori of the Peoples Democratic Party representing Delta Central has taken a swipe at Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state, Governor Rochas Okorocha and Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the APC national publicity secretary, saying that the trio have turned themselves as Minister of Information and Defence.
