Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has accused the Peoples Democratic Party of which he was a founding member, of disappointing people of the South-East geo-political zone and Nigerians in general.
Okorocha stated this on Thursday while speaking to journalists at the Government House in Owerri on state and national issues.
The governor who stressed that he had nothing against President Goodluck Jonathan but his party, the PDP, spoke just as he justified his decision to pitch tent with the yet-to-be registered All Progressive Congress.
“There is the need for a better change, Nigerians are tired of Peoples Democratic Party, which is no longer what it used to be after failing to address the needs of Nigerians,” he said.
While declaring his interest and support for the merger and APC, Okorocha described the political party as a child of necessity capable of providing the much-needed change in the South-East region.
Okorocha promised to woo people of the South-East zone for APC, saying the party would be good for democracy as well as for the Nigerian people.
In veiled reference to the PDP, he said APC would promote internal democracy since it did not support imposition of candidates.
