APC Threatens Okorocha over Attacks on Its Leadership


From Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has warned the governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, that it would not tolerate his constant attacks on its leadership.

The party also faulted an advertorial placed by one of the governor’s associates alleging that it was duly served a court injunction to stop the congress in Imo State, describing it as false and misleading.

In a statement issued Wednesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdulahi, APC accused Governor Okorocha of continuously making libelous allegations against the party and its leaders.

It said there were attempts to deceive members of the public on the true state of things regarding the congress in Imo State by forging a memo purportedly signed by the party’s National Legal Adviser, Mr. Muiz Banire.

It said it had launched an investigation into the matter.

“We therefore, once again urge Governor Okorocha to tread the path of caution and reconciliation and to work with the duly elected party executives in the state for the good of the party. We shall however not tolerate his constant assault on the party, either directly or through proxies,” it said..
