The All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, should, as a matter of
fact, wind-up and fuse into the All Progressives Congress, APC, if the
Party cannot fly again without brandishing Governor Rochas Okorocha’s
name in a quite unfortunate manner.
Innocent Nigerians who have been following events in the past three
months would agree with us that the APGA elements have decided to be
using Governor Okorocha’s name to market their party but in a very
wrong way. First, they came up with the ridiculous story of Okorocha
wanting to return to APGA. And they never said anything that could
convince anybody to believe them.
They never said whether he wrote to them or approached any of them, or
even sent people to approach them on his behalf. They also did not
mention what could be the attractions in APGA this time, that could
make the Imo Governor thinking about returning to a Party he left with
the soul and dropped it on the APC table. We kept quiet and never
talked to them.
Few days ago, the National Chairman of the Party, Chief Victor Oye had
a Press Conference in Abuja and the target of the Press Conference was
Governor Okorocha. Chief Oye heavily insulted the Imo governor
unprovoked and unwarranted. He talked about how the Party would not
accept Rochas again, without telling the world whether there was any
application from Okorocha to that effect.
It is obvious that Chief Oye and his Cohorts in APGA are yet to
recover from the deep cut the exit of Governor Okorocha inflicted on
APGA, for the merger that saw the emergence of APC. They are yet to
recover from the shock occasioned by that patriotic action by Governor
Okorocha and they can’t help the situation, aside talking about
Okorocha and APGA as if something is left with the Party.
Infact, Oye and Co. are using Okorocha’s name as a marketing strategy
for APGA. He could do that in a more refined manner than using insults
and abuses. Governor Okorocha took the soul of APGA to APC and he did
it in the overall interest of Ndigbo and Nigeria. He deserves
accolades from reasonable sons and daughters of Igbo land.
Chief Oye also tried to play down Governor Okorocha’s monumental
achievements in Imo. And in case he has not read our claims on the
governor’s achievements in Imo, we may repeat it here for his sake.
What Governor Okorocha has achieved in Imo as governor have surpassed
the grand total of the achievements of all those who had governed the
State before him. We expect him to challenge us on this claim if he so
Equally, Chief Oye should work and make APGA win another State in the
South-East where there are five States and only one is APGA at the
moment. And in 2011 Okorocha won his election for who God has made him
to be and not because of APGA. If Chief Oye doubts this hypothesis let
him make APGA to win in Enugu or Ebonyi that also have close
boundaries with Anambra State that is controlled by APGA this time.
Finally, Igbo people like Oye should learn how to celebrate their
God-given stars like Owelle Okorocha instead of trying fruitlessly to
run down such men.
