Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has debunked flying around that he plans to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after an image surfaced on the social media, showing him with some officials of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Okorocha was suspensed by APC alongside Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun for anti-party activities.
On Saturday, Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Sam Onwuemeodo, reacted to the rumours and urged the public to disregard such picture, accusing his political detractors as being behind such postings, clarifying that the picture in question was taken long ago. He said:
This photograph is as old as the APC government in 2015. But those who were declared winner of the governorship election in lmo with votes from the three local councils of Mbaise have been making fruitless efforts to blackmail Governor Rochas Okorocha to see if that could help them go free with their electoral fraud. They posted this picture on social media with badly written statement and falsely claiming that the governor was in a PDP meeting today.
Okorocha said he was optimistic that any stolen mandate would be retrieved at the appropriate time.
