The Name Rochas Okorocha And APC From 2013 To 2020

By: Sam Onwuemeodo

Rochas Anayo Okorocha is the name. The nomenclature. If you like or so wish, you can add, Owelle or former Governor or Senator. Or, Distinguished Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. These are the colourations or decorations.

In this flight, I won’t attach any of the titles to his name. Let him go to Court. I know I won’t be found guilty. My Governor, My Governor; My People, My People. Governance made easy. Very interesting. No tension. No violence. No alarm. Rochas Okorocha and APC from 2013 to 2020 . Ask me again, APC remains indebted to Rochas Okorocha. I am going to tell you why and how. We must continue to make progress.

Imo, before Rochas Okorocha, had been one of the known strongholds of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. There was no other Political Party with life in the State. That was also why, in 2007, they made Chief Ikedi Ohakim (my man), governor, on the ticket of Progressives Peoples Alliance, PPA and later, he joined the PDP. Ohakim bears no malice. He is pure in heart, and shall, therefore, see God. That’s the Scripture. I am talking about why APC is indebted to Mr. Rochas Okorocha. Like I had said, I won’t call him Owelle. I won’t call him Senator. I won’t call him former Governor. The decision is mine. Follow me closely. That was how strong and consolidated PDP was in Imo, before Okorocha’s governorship in 2011.

The South-East in general, was also seen and is still been seen, as PDP stronghold or Portion. Their “inheritance”. The Party appears to have the “Certificate of Occupancy” (C of O) of the South-East Politics. Infact, the Headquarters of the PDP, seems to be the South-East.

I tell you this. And read my lips correctly. If Okorocha didn’t join the Merger that gave birth to APC in 2013, as a sitting governor, from the South-East or from Igboland, APC would have been seen as a sectional party. It would not have had the needed national outlook.
