Ohanaeze’s endorsement of Atiku/Obi has no value, says Okorocha
• Optimistic Buhari Will Win In Southeast
Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has said the resent endorsement of the presidential flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and his running mate by Ohaneze Ndigbo is a folklore told by the Igbo apex socio-political group with no electoral value.
Okorocha, who is the Chairman of Progressive Governors’ Forum, also said the endorsement should not make anyone to lose sleep, insisting that the body is not a registered political party that should make statements.
In a statement, yesterday, signed by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, he clarified: “Ohanaeze is a socio-cultural organisation and not a registered political party and there is no voting unit or polling booth called Ohanaeze. The adoption is neither here nor there, since it has no electoral value.”
Okorocha recalled that Ohanaeze’s action was the second time, having done such in 2015, yet could not succeed, stressing: “This is also not the first time Ohanaeze has adopted a PDP presidential candidate. It did that in 2015, yet, PDP failed with its presidential candidate, while APC won with its presidential candidate.
