Edo: Okorocha Blames Oshiomhole For APC’s Defeat

Former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has criticised the structure of the ruling All Progressives Congress following defeat to the Peoples Democratic Party in the September 19 Edo gubernatorial election.

Okorocha who now represents Imo West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, having been elected on the platform of the APC, said Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s defeat to PDP’s Godwin Obaseki was a “revolution of the masses against injustice”.

Speaking with Journalists in Abuja, Okorocha said, “there is no more APC, what we have is the respect for President Muhammadu Buhari”.

His sentiment was shared by his son-in-law and former governorship candidate in Imo State, Uche Nwosu.

Nwosu blamed former National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole for the loss as

”all he did was to try to muzzle people to accept a candidate they never wanted”.

This is not what APC was built on, we expect things to be done the right way but the former chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, believes that anything can come from anywhere without going through the due process,” he said.
