Chairman of All Progressives Congress, (APC) Governors Forum, and governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Ojorocha said yesterday that seven Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), governors were secretly holding meetings and strategizing in favour of his party for the polls.

Okorocha, who spoke at APC campaign rally in Amuwo-Odofin local government area of Lagos, did not, however, name the PDP governors involved.

According to him, the action of the PDP governors further indicates that the ruling party was afraid of the APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.)

“Buhari’s victory has been sealed and delivered and today, about seven governors who are not APC are coming to hold meeting with us privately. There is fear in the country and the fear was that they know that Buhari is a good man and he will win.

“They know that once the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC announce Buhari as the winner of the presidential election, all the bad people who are embezzling the country’s fund will leave the country at night. The fear of Buhari is the beginning of stoppage of corruption,’’ he said.

He noted that after Buhari assumed office in 1983, he stopped open defecation before it became entrenched again and eradicated all forms of indiscipline.

Okorocha said the glory of the country would be restored because the change that gave rise to APC had started.

“PDP died immediately APC was formed and we scheduled the burial of the party for February 14 but they postponed it to March 28. We are waiting patiently to bury the party forever. But let me tell you that you can change the date of burial but you cannot change the burial. It must take place.

“The worst thing that can happen to any nation is to have a bad government and the worst thing that can happen to any family is to have a bad father.

“Today, it is obvious that PDP is a bad government and we thank God that we came together to change the bad government,” he said.
