The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on former Imo State Governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha, to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the opposition party.
Naija News reports that Okorocha was one of the founding fathers of the APC when he led a faction of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to form the ruling party.
Okorocha who is pushing for a new political movement stated that the APC was hurriedly created in 2014.
According to Okorocha, the movement for a new Nigeria has begun and all politicians must come together to make the country work.
But reacting in an interview with The Punch, National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, appealed to the former governor to return to the opposition party instead of making the mistake he made in 2014.
He explained that the PDP was glad that more Nigerians especially people like the former Imo State governor had seen the deceit the APC represented.
Ologbondiyan said, “Our advice to people like Okorocha is for him to avoid making the same mistake twice, any party hurriedly put together like the APC because elections are bound to fall into the same errors.
“He should rather come over to the PDP, a very structured party with a pedigree of performance. We’ve made a few mistakes in the past and we’ve learnt from them. Nigerians now know the difference between a properly structured political party which has their interest at heart and an association of angry men who only came together to grab power for power sake.”
