The governor stated the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) has inflicted the best devilish political machinations in opposition to his particular person. The governor decamped from PDP to APGA in 2011 after which to APC in 2013
Speaking in a press convention in Abuja yesterday Wednesday May eighth, Okorocha stated though he stays a staunch member of the APC , it was regrettable that the evil that made him to go away the PDP and be a part of the APC had turn into more fiery inside the ruling occasion and huge dose of that was being inflicted on him with purpose of damaging his political profession.

“The evil I feared in the PDP has befallen me ten times in the APC. Last week, I wrote a letter to INEC for the primary rime myself, informing INEC of their flawed doings and unlawful actions taken by INEC to withhold my certificates on mere allegations of duress which was by no means based, neither was there any committee set as much as examine the matter. So, INEC on their very own consider the reviews of their Returning Officer with out investigating the authenticity of the investigation. So, there was no subject of truthful listening to in any respect.
“What is necessary right here is that INEC doesn’t have the facility to withhold the certificates of return having declared the consequence. I consider the INEC chairman is as much as a recreation with the chairman of the APC who’re getting used because the people to frustrate my coming to the Senate and that is politically motivated. I’ve given sufficient time that INEC would possibly right itself and do the needful and subject me my certificates of return however to no avail.
“Many issues have occurred thus far and these needs to be of concern to everybody. INEC that made the submission to the tribunal have gone again requesting to withdraw it as a result of the submission was defending the declaration by INEC.
“But as a result of the submission appears to be in my favour, they’ve stated they need to withdraw the affidavit which is out of time. The withdrawal was made by certainly one of their employees, who stated that Festus Okoye, a Commissioner in INEC, has threatened to sack him if he doesn’t withdraw it.
“So, there’s a large menace occurring in INEC. Festus Okoye is presently getting used because the hatchet man; he has gone to the tribunal in Imo asking to withdraw the affidavit that has been filed defending APC.
“I ponder what they need to do with the certificates, in the event that they don’t give it to me, who will they provide it to? Maybe they are going to give it to Festus Okoye as a result of he’s from my Senatorial zone however what they’re doing is presenting INEC as a mendacity organisation and that’s harmful for our democracy as a result of, because it stands proper now, the picture of INEC is bastardised.
“What it means is that tomorrow someone can withhold the certificates of anyone since you don’t like his face since you really feel that he desires to politically problem you in future. “Asked why he has not taken benefit of his shut relationship to President Muhammadu Buhari to hunt for his intervention with the management of the occasion, Okorocha stated he didn’t need to trouble the President with such a difficulty particularly because it issues INEC.
“If you recognize the President effectively, you’d know that he won’t ever intervene as he would solely preserve mute. But whether or not President Buhari speaks or not, INEC ought to do the suitable factor by giving me my certificates of return.
