Former Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has said that the All Progressives Congress, APC is no more following the party’s loss in the just concluded Edo state elections.
Okorocha, who addressed journalists via phone said that all that’s left in the party is just respect for President Muhammadu Buhari. According to him, the party died the day the leadership abandoned the progressive and democratic ideals on which it was founded.
“Permit me to give you the inside of APC, this word APC was formed by four major political parties that had governors, one was the CPC led by President Muhammadu Buhari, ACN led by Ahmed Tinubu, ANPP led by Ogbonnaya Onu who all brought their structure, APGA led by me brought in our structure. Every other person fell into this structure.”
“The PDP group came in and joined us. I gave the name APC. I designed that logo and that was the beginning of the party and we had understanding.”
“That is the party you call APC and unless we go back to where it all started, APC can never see the light of the day and that was how we started and that was what brought President Muhammadu Buhari to office.”
“There is no more APC, what we have is the respect for President Muhammadu Buhari, that is what is keeping us together. What we have is our respect for the person of President Buhari and we still believe that something can be done.”
