ROCHAS DEFECTION – ASO ROCK ROCKS GRAVELY
Governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha has kept ASO ROCK in grave disorder as he defects from APC to DPP in preparation for the 2019 general election.
Multiple sources gathered that Rochas defected from the APC to DPP because of the refusal of APC to give his son-in-law gubernatorial ticket.
Uche Nwosu recently lost out in the concluded APC primaries but Rochas has not been happy with the outcome having earlier sworn to hand over power to his son-in-law (Uche).
Earlier, Uche Nwosu who doubles as Imo State Chief of Staff and son-in-law to the sitting governor had defected to DPP with some of the aides of Rochas in pursuant of their dream positions.
Rochas had joined them to throw his full weight behind them as he has this to say…
“What happen in Imo State was a clear case of injustice, where Uche Nwosu won the primary and was robbed of the ticket”.
“This injustice must be seriously addressed if democracy will continue to take its lead in the Nigerian politics”.
However, notwithstanding that my aides are leaving the party, I will not leave. I will remain a strong member of APC.
I tried to stop them from leaving but as you know, I have my limits in everything, especially when it comes to their ambitions. I only did my best to stop them but they disobeyed me.
He was of the opinion that president Buhari was not party to the injustice meted against his son-in-law and so he will continue to support Buhari’s re-election as a party faithful.
He further stated that the National chairman of APC Adams Oshiomole is to be solely blamed for the injustice in the party’s primaries.
