Igbos Are Ready To Dump PDP For APC
Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has revealed that the Ndigbo had concluded plans to dump the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the newly formed All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2015 general elections.
He further enjoined the Igbo to play politics that can guarantee them national relevance as APC now remains the only party that has a future for the zone and entire Nigerians, going by its ideology.
The Governor said the decision became imperative due to the gross neglect and marginalization suffered by the South East geo-political zone under the PDP leadership.
Okorocha made the disclosure when he played host to the Abia State chapter of Igbo Rescue Mission, a political pressure group in the Government House, Owerri.
He described the APC as a child of circumstance which arose from the failure of the PDP to deliver quality and good governance to Nigerians, adding that the new party, which he said represents a coalition of major opposition parties in Nigeria, was being positioned to provide the credible and acceptable platform that will enthrone the leadership Nigerians desire in the 2015 general elections.
Okorocha, who decried the marginalization suffered by the Ndigbo under the ruling PDP, pointed out that the party (PDP) had continuously denied the Ndigbo the five principal positions he listed as the office of the President, Vice President, Senate President, Speaker House of Representative and the Chairman of the ruling party.
Speaking earlier, the leader of the group, Chief Ben Udensi said they were in the Government House to demonstrate support and solidarity to the Governor for his vision and leadership qualities, which he noted have guaranteed the dividends of democracy to the people of the state.
