Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha on Thursday dismissed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as no threat to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“PDP is a non issue; we don’t even care about that. We defeated them when they were in power, so what is different when we are now in power?”
Okorocha, who is also APC Governors Forum Chairman, spoke after he led his colleagues to a meeting with Acting President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa.
He said President Muhammadu Buhari’s medical vacation is not stopping the ruling party from holding its convention.
According to him, the party was still trying to put its house in order before the convention can take place.
He said: “We came to discuss issues relating to our party and our government and how to move our party forward.
“We discussed a lot of issues on how to move the party forward, how to strengthen the party and how to make sure our party remains victorious in all elections. Very soon we will have a convention. That is part of the things we are discussing.
“The convention not taking place has nothing to do with the absence of the President or the Acting President. We are just putting our house in order and making sure things are in the right form before we kick off.
