Okorocha1Sixteen All Progressives Congress (APC) governors under the aegis of Progressive Governors Forum have unanimously adopted Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State as their chairman.

The choice of Okorocha as chairman of the PGF was contained in a statement by the Director-General of the Forum, Salihu Lukman, in Abuja on Friday.

The Imo State governor would be in the saddle in an interim capacity for about six months.

The statement said the election of Gov. Okorocha was in furtherance of the commitment of the 16 progressive governors to strengthen democratic governance structures in the country with the overriding goal of rescuing Nigeria and facilitating the emergence of accountable leadership at all levels by the APC.

“Okorocha would provide leadership to PGF to realise the collective vision of the progressive governors to engender expeditiously exemplary human development programmes and policies in all APC states” the statement read.

It added that “Considering how consistently the PDP has attacked the foundations of our democracy, and the subsequent erosion of Nigerians’ hard-won freedom, the PGF under Okorocha’s leadership, pledges to mobilise citizens towards expanding and deepening democratic structures by focusing on initiatives to guarantee the development of participatory governance structures as well as the guarantee of transparent, credible elections and the results reflect the votes of the Nigerian people.

“We urge Nigerians to support the initiatives of our Progressive Governors under the leadership of Rochas Okorocha; Nigeria will be great again”, the statement concluded.

  1. Can’t APC do one thing without mentioning PDP? If PDP is the one reason for them to form PGF then the party have no agenda or programmes of it own, they are just existing to copy and paste PDP programmes. Looking at the faces in APC All You see is Greedy, self seeking,power hustlers,and fustrated politicians who have lost their onion. The content of APC is like that of putting an old wine in a new bottle,the faces you see there are all seeking one thing, self aggrandisement,non will take this country a step further.
