Abuja - The Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) hailed Imo State Governor, Owello Okorocha, after his defection from the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to the newly-registered All Progressives Congress.
In a statement through the National Publicity Secretary, Osita Okechukwu, CNPP said Okorocha's departure signalled the demise of APGA in the state.
According to a statement, Okorocha’s exit from APGA and entry into the APC was a clarion call for Ndigbo and all Nigerians to join APC.
“CNPP salutes Gov Okorocha for putting the nation first. Is it not a paradox, that Ndigbo as true federalists, who dwell in every nook and cranny of the country, invest across the land and regard every part of the country as home are being blinded by a sectional party -APGA."
"To buttress his commitment to the spirit and letters of the APC's Manifesto and Constitution he took time to midwife a seamless primary in APC Anambra State by getting the two front runners of the gubernatorial race of the party, Senators, Chris Ngige and Anie Okonkwo to harmonize their campaign."
"For this, we salute Anie Okonkwo for his magnanimity and candourin stepping for his elder brother, who will no doubt reduce bitterness and Do or Die politics,” CNPP stated.
“From all accounts the APC more than APGA and PDP is leading the way in conducting a seamless primary, devoid of bitterness and bad blood."
"This is what Nigerians have been yearning for, a service approach to governance, not grab-grab approach or Do or Die politics anchored on primitive accumulation,” CNPP stated.
