- Chekwas Okorie accuses the All Progressives Congress of failing to keep its promise of bringing about ‘change’
- He states that his party, UPP, was the most credible opposition party in the country today because it is devoid of rancor and fictionalization
- He lauds INEC and the National Assembly for the use of the Electoral Voting System which would bring about transparency of the voting process
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has been accused of defrauding and trying to divide Nigeria as a nation by the United Progressives Party (UPP).
According to reports, the accusation was made by the national chairman of the UPP, Chekwas Okorie, on Thursday June 29, while speaking at his party’s national convention in Awka, the Anambra state capital.
Okorie insisted that Nigerians had been defrauded by the APC after the party had received votes.
The UPP chairman accused the ruling party of failing to make good its promises of bringing change.
He stated: “We have been politically defrauded by a political party that canvassed true federalism while it sought for the votes of Nigerians; but, in a very unscrupulous and unconscionable manner, promptly jettisoned its avowed article of faith and foisted on harmless Nigerian citizens, the worst form of nepotism, reductionism, lethargy, cluelessness and retrogression.”
Okorie reaffirmed his party’s policy to zone its presidential slot to the south-east geopolitical zone for the 2019 general elections while describing the UPP as the most credible opposition party in the country today, devoid of rancor and fictionalization in the foreseeable future.
Okorie gave the assurance that he would guard the UPP’s stellar reputation jealously as he stated: “The party would grant all federating units of the country the latitude to explore and exploit their comparative advantage for national growth and development if elected into power.”
Chekwas Okorie also lauded the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the National Assembly for the use of the Electoral Voting System.
He stated that it would ensure transparency and credibility in the electoral process.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that Reno Omokri, a former spokesperson to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has called out the All Peoples Congress (APC) again, with evidences of failed promises allegedly made by APC.
Omokri called out the minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi, who recently stated that Nigerians should wait till 2019 before complaining about the current government.
Amaechi said two years is not enough to change the Nigeria’s economy and Nigeria should wait until the administration of President Buhari finished his 4 years tenure.
