Buhari’s declaration will ultimately silence PDP, says Okorocha

The Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum and Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s declaration for second term will silence the ‘noise’ of the opposition parties.

Okorocha also described the President’s declaration as a “patriotic response to the clarion call of Nigerians of goodwill on him to lead the country for another four years”.

He prided that the All Progressives Congress (APC) does not owe any apologies for its first four years under the Presidency of Buhari, unlike the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) that looted the country for sixteen years only to apologize.

The governor in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, also noted that, “the declaration of the President to go for Second tenure would also go a long way to reduce the noise of the opposition and take care of the idiosyncrasies of certain elements in the system”.

He observed that the President has done well to deserve a second tenure, adding that “those who had wanted to blackmail him out of going for another term can now find other meaningful things to keep themselves busy”

The governor expressed optimism that the President “would largely garner more votes in 2019 than he had done in 2015 because most Nigerians, including people of the Southeast have seen that he meant well for the nation and the citizenry”.

Okorocha added further that “the APC has no apology to make because it has done wonderfully well considering the magnitude of the rot it met on ground in 2015”.

He also noted that “the antenna of the opposition in the Country will finally be lowered when the campaigns begin and the Party will be showing Nigerians its achievements in the states under its control and at the Federal level”.

According to the Imo governor, “when a political party had admitted that the government it ran was a huge failure and then apologized, such scenario goes with restitution and not with reward”.

He urged APC members across the nation to close ranks for the victory of the party at all levels in 2019.
