The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), South East zone, has assured Governor Rochas Okorocha that his avowed ambition to ensure that the All Progressive Grand Alliance(APGA) takes over the five South Eastern states will end up like his several abandoned projects littering the state.
In a statement signed and made available to LEADERSHIP by the National Vice Chairman, (rtd), PDP, South East, Col. Austin O. Akobundu, it urged Governor Okorocha to redeem his image as a governor with no landmark achievements, stressing that it will not be the first promise he didn’t keep.
“His Excellency has chosen to ignore facts on the ground in his postulations. Twice PDP defeated APGA in recent elections under his watch. PDP won the Ahiazu/Ezinihitte Mbaise Federal Constituency by-election in February and the Oguta State Constituency election in August.
In frustration, the governor has resorted to illegal means to prevent the winner from being sworn-in but he has only made himself more unpopular. While PDP is rebuilding and receiving new and returning members, everywhere APGA is in crisis. It is a dying party, a refuge for desperate politicians.
“Okorocha’s performance in Imo State does not inspire enough confidence to attract new members to a party. It has neither focus nor sustainable agenda, only abandoned projects and frustration for contractors. All the institutions of governance have been collapsed into the governor’s magic hat and he runs the place as the spirit moves him. It is the nature of that spirit that has created anxiety in Imo”, the PDP said.
