Nigeria’s ruling party, APC, ‘may disappear’ after President Buhari’s exit in 2023 —Former Gov Okorocha



IMO GUBER: Okorocha blames Oshiomhole, says posterity will judge him

Senator representing Imo West District, Rochas Okorocha, has expressed concerns that the All Progressives Congress (APC) may cease to exist when President Muhammadu Buhari leaves office in 2023.

Okorocha who said he had never considered leaving the APC, noted that his next move would be determined by time.

“My only worry is that the party may disappear with the exit of President Buhari if the ongoing injustices are not addressed,” he added.

While addressing newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja, the former Imo State governor, said unlike other Northern governors that rode on Buhari’s name to power, “the name Buhari had a negative effect on my campaign for second term.

“But I was determined to overcome that because I knew what we stood to gain,” he said.

He also lamented that his sacrifices to expand the membership base of the APC in the South-East was repaid by the party with evil.

“If anything, the party repaid me evil for good. There was no challenge I did not face or bad name I was not called in my state.

“They brought in people who fought me when I was building the party at state level to fight me over the control of the party. I don’t want to talk about it but my party did not treat me well.”
