OWERRI—A group in Imo State All Progressives Congress, APC, known as “Allied Forces,” yesterday said it would continue to fight injustice against Imo people.
The group’s spokesperson and former Commissioner for Information under Governor Rochas Okorocha, Mr. Theodore Ekechi, said this in a statement in Owerri.
He also said that they would appeal the judgement by the Federal High court sitting in Owerri, which nullified the APC congress held in the state.
According to the statement, “As Nigerians, particularly Imolites, we wish to express our surprise and deep shock over the Federal High Court judgment on the 5th of July 2018, which nullified the ward congress of our great party, APC.
“We are evaluating the ramifications of the judgement in the context of the national convention and the report of the national convention appeal panel before issuing a detailed statement.
“For certain however, is our resolve to appeal the judgement so that truth equity and justice may parevail.
“We thank all true and progressive members of our party.”
Imolites and indeed Nigerians, home and in the diaspora for their solidarity and grave concerns for Imo state in the hands of an emperor.
“We have never been in an illusion that we are fighting for justice against a desperate, rutherless sitting givernor who has uncontrolled access to the state fund to sponsor an unholy, selfish 3rd term agenda.
“Inspite of this slight set back, Okorocha succeeding himself in the third through the proxy of his son-in-law will not be realized. Congress, APC.”
