Buhari Won’t Support Oshiomhole on my Suspension –Okorocha

The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has distanced President Muhammadu Buhari from what he called “lawlessness” allegedly being perpetrated in the All Progressives Congress by the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.

Okorocha, in a statement on Sunday by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, said Buhari “is too decent” to be backing Oshiomhole in his unlawful actions.

The governor said Oshiomhole had done “so many strange things in APC.”

Okorocha described his suspension and that of his Ogun State counterpart, Ibikunle Amosun, from APC as worrisome.

He said Oshiomhole’s idea of party supremacy was lawlessness.

The statement read, “Adams Oshiomhole has done so many strange things with the party and it would be wrong for anybody to think that President Buhari, known for his penchant for decency, honesty and forthrightness would be on the same page with the national chairman.

“The President was voted by Nigerians across the geo-political zones because he has proved to be real and can be trusted. When he said he was fighting corruption, you saw it happening. It cannot be the same thing with someone who saw sold the tickets of the party to the highest bidders.

“We have yet to see any Nigerian living that would have defeated President Buhari in that election. He has earned the confidence and trust of most Nigerians, and in states where he lost, you could see traces of wanton manipulation and mutilation of election figures like in the case of Imo.

 “In other words, the President has nothing to do with Oshiomhole’s disdain for the right actions and the chairman’s penchant for lawlessness and total disregard for the party’s constitution.”
