Don’t Antagonise Buhari Over Appointments, Okorocha Begs Ndigbo

Rochas OkorochaGovernor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, has again appealed to the Igbo not to antagonise President Muhammadu Buhari over his appointments, saying they should rather continue to support the administration in the interest of national unity and development.
He made the appeal while addressing journalists at the Government House, Owerri.
Okorocha advised that the major preoccupation of Ndigbo presently should be how to strengthen the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the zone ahead of the 2019 general election.
He said, “Appointments are the prerogative of the President and it should not be over politicized. Rather our prerogative should be how to attract projects to the Southeast. Our people should not antagonise President Buhari but come together under the APC as a national party and be in the mainstream of Nigeria politics”.
Debunking insinuations of faceoff between him and other APC leaders, especially in the wake of the statement issued by the spokesman for the APC in the Southeast, the governor said that “we are one big family and we are working together to achieve the party’s campaign promises”.
