Former Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha has called for unity between his party, the All Progressive Congress and the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
According to him, there are bad persons in both parties and the good ones should work together to actualise their dreams for the country.
Okorocha said this during the inauguration of a road project on Monday in Emohua local government of Rivers state.
According to a statement by Kelvin Ebiri, Wike’s spokesperson, Okorocha said, “In this dispensation, there are many bad people in APC, many bad people in PDP. I think the good people of APC and good people of PDP must come together for purpose of making Nigeria great,” he was quoted as saying.
“I could imagine where I join forces with Wike. Governor Wike, this is my hand of friendship. Let us bring all like minds, all great people of Nigeria. Rather than complaining, let us come together to make this country greater and greater as it should be.”
He added that “what brought me here today is not party. What brought me here today is love and friendship. I am not PDP, I am APC. But the time has come when we must break the jinx of party division and begin to embrace brotherhood and friendship and be able to state what is good and what is bad. A bad man is a bad man, even if he is PDP or APC.”
