Former Governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okoroch has stated that the All Progressives Congress (APC), was a hurried arrangement formed to take power.

The Senator representing Imo West senatorial district on the APC platform stated this while addressing newsmen on Monday, January 18.

Further, Okorocha stated that the APC was hijacked by people who became “Lords”, adding that the story wouldn’t have been the same today if President Buhari had surrounded himself with good people.

APC was a hurried arrangement formed to take power when the then government was drifting - Okorocha

He said;

 

“The movement for a new Nigeria has begun and we must come together, I mean progressive Nigerians, to make the country work.

“APC was a hurried arrangement formed to take power when the then government was drifting. APC would have been better until people who were not members of the party, people who came for a congratulatory message, hijacked the party and became lords.

“The issue is not about APC or PDP. It is beyond political parties. We are talking about the character of the politicians. Political parties in Nigeria don’t have any ideology – it is just a vehicle to come to power.

“So, what we have is not the ideal thing. We have so many people who are not interested in working for the nation.

“For instance, if President Muhamamadu Buhari had surrounded himself with good people, the story would not be the same today.

“We have bad people in APC, just as we have them in PDP and that was why I made the call in Rivers state that the good ones should come together to lead the people.”
