The Imo State Governor, Chief Rochas Okorocha, after receiving an honorary doctorate degree at the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State on Saturday, spoke with journalists saying that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s departure from the ruling All Progressives Congress whom he described Abubakar as a heavyweight politician was not a good move for the party’s political standing for the upcoming elections.
He said, “I have taken a holistic view of our party, it is not the best because no matter how anybody thinks, Atiku carries some political weight . His leaving our party is not the best.”
Okorocha, also said that since the former Vice President had decided to move on politically by going to another political party, the APC would make amend and his place will be filled up accordingly.
Atiku lately switched from the APC to the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, ahead of the 2019 Presidential Election.
