“The evil I feared in the PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) has befallen me 10 times in the APC (All Progressives Congress),” said Rochas Okorocha as he launched a fierce attack on the leadership of the ruling party.
Mr Okorocha, the outgoing governor of Imo State, was reacting to the controversy trailing the refusal of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare him a senator-elect.
He accused the national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, and other unnamed leaders of the party of working with the electoral commission “to kill his senatorial ambition.”
The governor singled out Festus Okoye, a commissioner in INEC, saying he was being used as the “hatchet man” for the plot.
Mr Okorocha said this at an interaction with journalists Tuesday in Abuja.
Okorocha said he would not have suffered what he now suffers in the APC had he remained in the PDP.
