Okorocha to return to APGA



The romance between Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State
and the mainstream opposition party, All Progressives Congress
(APC), appears to have gone sour as indications have emerged that
he may soon dump the party.
New Telegraph authoritatively gathered that Okorocha was
contemplating several options, including pitching his tent with the
Peoples Progressive Alliance (PPA) or returning to the All
Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) his former party.
He is also said to be considering joining the Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP) in the event that the first two options fail. It was
learnt that Okorocha became disenchanted with APC following the
poor acceptance of the party in Imo State and the South-East
The party encountered a major electoral misfortune during the last
governorship election in Anambra State. Okorocha dumped
APGA in the wake of the merger of several opposition political
parties to form APC last year. As at the time he dumped APGA,
the party on whose platform he was elected governor in 2011, there
were speculations that Okorocha was being groomed to pick the vice
presidential ticket of the APC and become its arrow head in the
Okorocha, it was learnt, became disillusioned when he found out
that APC was not also prepared to offer him the platform to
actualise his vice presidential ambition. In shopping for a new
platform, it was learnt that Okorocha might find it difficult going
back to APGA given the
unceremonious manner he left the party after his failed attempt to
drag APGA into the APC merger project. It is also unlikely that
he will secure a place in the PDP because feelers showed that
some hawks within the party in Imo State were not favourably
disposed to having him in the ruling party.
Okorocha, according to our source, may probably end up with
PPA, a party that is so far considered less controversial and
neutral in the build up to the 2015 presidential election.
