Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari was not responsible for his suspension from the All Progressives Congress (APC) by the party Chairman, Adams Oshiomole.
Okorocha described the suspension of himself and party-mate, Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun as unlawful and worrisome.
According to PUNCH, Okorocha released a statement through his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo;
Adams Oshiomhole has done so many strange things with the party and it would be wrong for anybody to think that President Buhari, known for his penchant for decency, honesty, and forthrightness would be on the same page with the national chairman.
The President was voted by Nigerians across the geopolitical zones because he has proved to be real and can be trusted. When he said he was fighting corruption, you saw it happening. It cannot be the same thing with someone who saw sold the tickets of the party to the highest bidders.
We have yet to see any Nigerian living that would have defeated President Buhari in that election. He has earned the confidence and trust of most Nigerians, and in states where he lost, you could see traces of wanton manipulation and mutilation of election figures like in the case of Imo.
In other words, the President has nothing to do with Oshiomhole’s disdain for the right actions and the chairman’s penchant for lawlessness and total disregard for the party’s constitution.
