Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha, has reacted to rumours that he could decamp and move to the PDP after his ongoing rift with the party.

The Imo state governor has been embroiled in a battle with the party ever since the National Working Commission of the party refused to back his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, as the winner of the APC primaries.

Okorocha spoke with State House correspondents following a meeting with President Buhari.

He was also clear that he did not believe the Presidency has any hand in the current crisis rocking the party.

“How can I build a house and leave it for someone else? I am in APC; I founded APC; I gave the name APC and so this is our party and we’ll continue with the party and build the party for victory.” Okorocha said

“Oshiomhole is on his own in this whole thing; there is no presidency support for him to refuse those who won elections and embrace wrong candidates who did not win election.

“So, this is the matter and I will simply say it is not on the consent of the presidency; he is on his own.

“Oshiomhole must also learn to respect the rule of law and obey court orders where they apply. Treating court orders like tissue papers must stop; it does not reflect the image of our party.

“He must act quickly to fix the integrity of this party because his coming ought to have brought joy into the party, not sadness.’’ he said.
