“I have not left APC. I am still in APC. Nobody has a stake in APC more than me. The worst insults I had in Imo and in the South-East in 2015, was because of APC and President Muhammadu Buhari. APC was formed by President Buhari, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, myself and few other people. But those on congratulation trip, have taken over the party.”

Okorocha was of the stand that, “Daniel Nwafor and others, duly elected as the Executives of the Party remain as such. Those who want to destroy the Party lied to President Buhari. The Judgements on the issue all stated that the NEC of the Party or the governor, cannot remove the party excos. The party executives can only be removed by convention.

“Whatever they do here without the duly elected party officials in the State, including the planned registration exercise, expected to begin on Monday, would be null and void.
