The National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress has cautioned the Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, against further verbal attacks on party leaders. The party advised the governor to work with the party leadership in his state instead of making libellous attacks on the APC and its leadership.
The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, issued the warning in a statement he signed in Abuja, on Wednesday. According to him, Okorocha has made it a habit of making libellous attacks on the party and its leaders on a daily basis. Abdullahi said, “Hardly a day passes by without Governor Okorocha verbally assaulting our National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, and other party leaders over the recently concluded congresses in Imo State.” He cited an example of an advertorial published in a national daily titled: “Let the Truth Speak for itself.”
Abdullahi said the advertorial “was signed by a known associate of Governor Okorocha, one Ireagwu Obioma, who styles himself as ‘Acting Secretary, Imo APC.”
