Rochas Okorocha Denies Joining PDP, Says I’m Still In APC

Contrary to claims in some media outlets, Rochas Okorocha, a former governor of Imo State and senator for the Imo West senatorial district, has denied defecting from the governing All Progressives Congress (APC).

Sam Onwuemeodo, Okorocha’s special adviser on media, released a statement on Thursday in which he denied joining the PDP (PDP).

Okorocha explained that on Friday, December 30, 2022, Kingsley Uju, representing Ohaji-Egbema/Oguta/Oru West Federal Constituency, buried his mother at Egbema and he only attended the event.

He noted that a burial ceremony could not have become a political declaration rally, insisting he was still in the APC.

The lawmaker described those behind the story as mischief makers.

Okorocha said:

“Our attention had been drawn to a story, claiming that the former governor of lmo State has joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“We appeal that the general public disregard the story of Okorocha joining the PDP. lt is not true. The photographs attached to the false story are not evil since politics is not war. Nor a do-or-die venture.

“Our only concern was the virus some mischief makers tried to inject into the innocent photographs, taken at Uju’s mother’s burial, without malice or those involved being conscious of which political parties all those at the burial in question, belong.”

“Those behind this false story deliberately failed or refused to mention the venue and title of the event, where the photographs were taken. They could not also quote a portion of Okorocha’s speech that he must have made at the so-called event.”
