- Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state said the All Progressives Congress (APC) will adopt his formula to win the forthcoming Anambra election
- Okorocha said Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state would have to hand over to the APC when the election holds
The All Progressives Congress (APC) will win the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra state, the Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, has reportedly said.
NAIJ.com learnt that Okorocha boasted that nothing would stop the APC from taking over state in the November 18, 2017, election.
Okorocha reportedly urged the Anambra state governor, Chief Willie Obiano, to start writing his handover note to an APC governor.
Vanguard reports that Okorocha, who spoke through Dr Simon Nwulu, while inaugurating the Rochas Peoples Movement (RPM) in Anambra, said the main objective of the movement was to register grassroots presence in every nook and cranny of the state.
He said: “The Igbo can no longer belong to regional political parties. We must belong to the mainstream. APC is that place to belong.
“Anambra is critical in Igbo politics. So we shall all come down here to deliver the state to the ruling All Progressives Congress. We have the capacity; we have the capability.
“APC is the structure for the emancipation of the Igbo nation and no man born of a woman can stop us from taking over Anambra state after the November 18 election.
“At any polling unit during the election, at least 63 members of Rochas Peoples Movement will be present to man the units and protect our votes. That will be the magic.
“We shall bring the Imo formula here and by the time we finish, Obiano and APGA would just pack and go."
He asked the members of the movement to have their voters’ cards handy, saying that would be a major criterion for confirmation of appointments in the next APC government in Anambra state.
He also asked ward coordinators of the movement to mobilise APC members to register in the ongoing voter registration exercise for the purpose of the November 18 election.
The Anambra state coordinator of the movement, Chief Olisa Onyeka, thanked Okorocha for coming over to help.
