Imo state governor Okorocha

The Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum, Governor Rochas Okorocha, said the All Progressives Congress (APC) was not scared over the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Speaking to State House correspondents after APC governors met with President Muhammadu Buhari, Okorocha disclosed that the party would soon embark on reconciliation to appease those who were aggrieved as a result of the nationwide exercise.

Other governors at the meeting also attended by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, were Mohammed Abubakar (Bauchi); Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano); Kashim Shettima (Borno); and Akinwunmi Ambode (Lagos).

Okorocha said: “We can’t be jittery. History is there to speak, history is very important.

“As I said, we are not going to get involved in this verbal war with anybody; we will be talking about issues.

“If you say ‘look, you are not good’, we will tell you what we can do and what we cannot do and what others cannot do.

“So APC is not going to engage in that kind of talk show, but we will discuss on what our party can do for the people.”
