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. ”
