Why Okorocha Joined APC - Aide Reveals


photoChief Martins Ebunola, Special assistant to Imo state governor Rochas Okorocha has said that the governor joined the All Progressive Congress, APC to bring to reality the dream of the Igbos for a presidential or vice-presidential slot in 2015.
While addressing newsmen in Lagos on the controversy that trailed statements by the governor at the inaugural meeting of the South East APC, held in Owerri, Ebunola said Okorocha was referring to some Igbo leaders who were working against the political interest of the Igbos.
He said Okorocha did not leave for APC because he had any quarrel with anyone but because he wanted to ensure that the Igbos are not marginalised in the country, while adding that Okorocha has not said he will run for presidency in 2015.
He said, "What is wrong with the progressive efforts of the governor to ensure that an Igbo man was democratically elected as president or vice-president of Nigeria in 2015?"
Ebunola, however, called on the Igbo people and all Igbo-speaking communities in the country to support the APC as the party’s manifesto would further promote the rapid development of Igbo land.
