Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has dismissed rumours that he wants to defect from the All Progressives Congress over the fallout of the party’s governorship primaries in the state.
Okorocha spoke with State House correspondents after a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said he was at the Presidential Villa to clear the air that Presidency was behind what the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, was doing in some of the states.
Okorocha said that Oshiomhole’s actions had affected APC negatively, adding that there was no instruction from the President directing the National Chairman to do anything illegal or create any sort of injustice.
“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.
