Former governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha has concluded arrangements to dump the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and move to main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Rochas represents Imo West Senatorial Zone.

The plan for his move was disclosed by a PDP leader in Imo State, Sen. Samuel Anyanwu.

Apart from Rochas, Anyanwu, a former lawmaker, assed that several APC lawmakers in Imo are already talking with the PDP in the state.

He said- “If national and state legislators are privately negotiating for a comeback into the PDP, those who are currently members should regard their membership as a privilege to remain loyal and faithful to party rules,” he stated.

The plan for Sen. Rochas to move to PDP is fanned by internal crisis tearing the APC apart in the state.

In crisis is stoked further by the raging conflict between Rochas and current governor, Sen. Hope Uzodinma who has been accused by the former governor of carrying out personal vendetta against him in the name of fighting corruption.

It would be recalled that Okorocha last week told reporters that he was unable to register for the APC’s enormous revalidation drive.

The APC on its part has accused Rochas of anti-party acts and yesterday, July 13, reportedly suspended him from the ruling party.
