APC repaid me with evil, says Okorocha

Immediate past Imo Governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha has lamented he was badly treated by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The party, he alleged, repaid his courage and sacrifices with evil in the south east.

The Imo West Senator challenged the current administration in the state to investigate his eight years in office, saying no government in the state can beat his records of achievement as governor.

Okorocha, whose election was upheld on Monday, expressed sadness that the party he helped nurtured in the south east would pay him back in what he described as evil way by suspending him from the party.

Speaking with newsmen in Abuja, Okorocha who insisted that he still remain a member of the APC, said the party may go into extinction when President Muhammadu Buhari exits.

He said that the party should realise that the party will be judged by its performance in government and concentrate on governance issues and giving the President the required support to succeed.

Commenting on his political battles as governor, Okorocha said he suffered a lot of attacks and almost lost the election in 2015 for sharing the same political platform with Buhari.

“Unlike other governors from the north that rode on the name Muhammadu Buhari to power, the name Buhari had a negative effect on my campaign for second term.

“But I was determined to overcome that because I knew what we stand to gain. But today, the same party says they are suspending me,” he stated.

Reacting to allegations of misappropriation funds during his tenure as the governor of Imo state, Okorocha said that apart from leaving a whooping N45.5 billion in state coffers, he will challenge anyone who can beat his record of development projects.
