The Governor of Imo State and Chairman of APC Governors Forum, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has told National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole to learn how to talk to the party’s leaders.
The governor made this known on Thursday while reacting to Oshiomhole’s Wednesday comment in which he described aggrieved governors of the party as “prodigal sons” and poor students of history.
Oshiomhole had made the comment in reaction to some of the party’s governors threatening to work against the party in 2019 while receiving Edo APC women leaders in his private office in Abuja.
Okorocha and Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun have openly expressed their resolve to work against the party’s gubernatorial candidate in their respective states.
But in a statement through his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, Okorocha said the party chairman should apply caution in the manner he addresses the party leaders.
The governor said, “We have not read Oshiomhole’s statement but I don’t think any National Chairman of a party can say such a thing. He should be advised on how he speaks. He can’t be attacking the leaders of the party.
“Take it from me, a party does not exist in a vacuum. There must be people to run the party. President Muhammadu Buhari has a high pedigree which Nigerians are happy of and Oshiomhole should learn from Mr. President.
“We have not read it anywhere but we insist that it is not the best way to treat members of the party. Oshiomhole should learn to talk in a way that brings dignity to APC”.
