Abia State Governor, Chief Theodore Orji, has said the opposition All Progressive Congress ( APC) , cannot win a polling booth in the state in the 2015 general elections as the party ” does not exist in Abia”.
Governor Orji who was reacting to a recent boasting by Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, who said APC would take over Abia in 2015, said Okorocha is suffering from acute malaria even as he advised him to seek medical examination.
Okorocha who represented by his Deputy, Prince Eze Madumere, had while addressing a stakeholders’ meeting of the South East chapter of APC held in Umuahia , said APC would sack PDP from the seat of power in the state come 2015
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Charles Ajunwa, Governor Orji reminded the Imo State Governor that “Imo people are still regretting their mistake of 2011 when he was voted into power under false pretense as a political messiah which he has proved not to be”.
Governor Orji told Okorocha that most of his “policies and programmes which are neither here nor there have rather taken Imo State backwards” while he parades himself as a progressive leader.
“Your rescue mission has failed to rescue Imo and how do you think you can deceive Abians with your political rhetoric and gimmicks? People are now wiser; your tricks in 2011 cannot work for you again. Stop deceiving yourself because South-east has no space for you and your APC in 2015”.
The Governor also told Okorocha to “stop wasting Imo resources on his imaginary Vice – Presidential ambition but instead deploy them on projects that will benefit the ordinary man as exemplified in Abia “, adding that “very soon it will dawn on Okorocha that he has travelled deep into a political wilderness accompanied by sycophants who will soon desert him.”
He said that contrary to Okorocha’s propaganda, his PDP – led administration in Abia has posted some undeniable legacy projects across the state which “the likes of Okorocha will never be able to achieve.”
He therefore, advised the Imo Governor to fight for his political survival as his abysmal performances so far in office has proved him to be a disappointment rather than the messiah he claimed to be.
Governor Orji assured that in 2015 PDP would replicate the victory it recorded in 2011 when it was overwhelming voted by the people of the state and South-east at large based on the antecedents of its candidates which they have continued to consolidate on.
