The crisis in the Imo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Thursday took a new dimension after leading chieftains of the party called on the national leadership of the party to expel Governor Rochas Okorocha from the party.
The demand was made by Senators Ifeanyi Ararume, Hope Uzodinma, Osita Izunaso and other party leaders. The stakeholders in a petition to the national leadership of the party asserted that for the party to be repositioned to win the Southeast in 2019, it must get rid of Governor Okorocha.
“There’s no other state that the president visited five times to appeal to its people and yet we wobbled. Our party must rid itself of this incorrigible worm, he is indeed a cankerworm.”
Those who signed the letter on behalf of Imo APC stakeholders include Senators Ben Uwajimogu, Hope Uzodinma, Ifeanyi Araraume, Osita Izunaso, Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, Hon. Mike Ohia and Hon. Austin Chukwukere.
