The governor of Imo state, Rochas
Okorocha, has said the recent disagreement between the Executive and the
Legislative arms of government, happened because the All Progressives Congress
(APC) was a weak party.

Okorocha, who is also the
Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum, disclosed this to Channels
Television on Sunday at Eagles’ Square, the venue of APC’s elective national
convention.
“Our problem has always been a
very weak party,” he said.
“The party has been very weak and
very inactive and that was why you see the crisis between Executive and the
National Assembly.”
Following the convention which
affirmed former Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole, as the new APC National
Chairman, Okorocha said the party would now take the necessary step to settle
the dispute and prepare for the general elections.
“I am one of the people who said
‘no elongation, let’s have congresses’ and you see we are coming out better for
it. Once this is done we will have a better party structure and the party will
be back alive.”
“If we have a strong party, this
will not happen, and we are hoping that things will change under the leadership
of Adams Oshiomhole and get better.
“We have new minds and new people
thinking right to handle the affairs of the party at the national level and it
will move forward. I have no doubt that APC will make it in 2019, all things
being equal,” the governor added.
