Orji lambasts Okorocha, says APC dead in Abia

Abia State Governor, Theodore Orji

The Abia State Governor, Theodore Orji, has lambasted his Imo State counterpart, Rochas Okorocha, saying Mr. Okorocha’s All Progressives Congress [APC], cannot win a polling booth in Abia State in the 2015 general elections.

Mr. Orji said APC does not exist in Abia.

The Abia governor was reacting to a remark by Mr. Okorocha that the APC will take over Abia State in 2015. Mr. Orji dismissed the Imo State governor as “suffering from acute malaria” and said the governor should seek medical attention.

While addressing a meeting of the South East chapter of APC held in Umuahia, Mr. Okorocha had said that APC will sack PDP from the seat of power in the state come 2015. The governor spoke through his deputy, Eze Madumere.
In a statement Thursday, Mr. Orji reminded the Imo State Governor that “Imo people are still regretting their mistake of 2011 when he was voted into power under false pretence as a political messiah which he has proved not to be”.
Mr. Orji said most of Mr. Okorocha’s policies and programmes “are neither here” and have rather taken Imo State backwards while he parades himself as a progressive leader.

“Your rescue mission has failed to rescue Imo and how do you think you can deceive Abians with your political rhetoric and gimmicks? People are now wiser, your tricks in 2011 cannot work for you again. Stop deceiving yourself because South-east has no space for you and your APC in 2015,” Mr. Orji said in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Charles Ajunwa.

Mr. Orji asked the Imo State governor to “stop wasting Imo resources on his imaginary Vice – Presidential ambition but instead deploy them on projects that will benefit the ordinary man as exemplified in Abia “, adding that “very soon it will dawn on Okorocha that he has travelled deep into a political wilderness accompanied by sycophants who will soon desert him.”

Governor Orji said that in 2015 PDP will repeat the victory it recorded in 2011.

    TA Orji of Abia State is the worst governor in Igbo land for 2013. In Nigeria he came as number 9. The people haven’t seen anything like dividend of democracy and many Abia indegenous people have personally called to say he is the worst governor in Nigeria. NEWISSUES categorise him as number 9. His people expect much from him but in the end governance to some of these men in government is about personal business and wealth accumulation for themselves and their friends.

    Thank you. Let him keep saying APC is dead. The acceptance of APC is spreading fast around the country. Abia will be won along several South east states by the APC. He shud prepare to accept defeat

  • I Hate Sycophant Truly

    Even the people at the helm of affairs doesn’t really know what decorum is all about. Can they talk without result to attack and abuse on personality. That’s too bad.
    For me to place these two Governors I need people from their state to give me brief about them. Well, i’ve been seen Okorocha’s work on T.V but Politicians can be so funny about their T.V’s development. Pls people come out and tell us who is performing among them.

    • Maria

      Governor Orji’s 8 years rule in Abia is a disaster… the man did nothing… only stealing. Just check this premium times you will see what Orji displays as his achievements. Governor Orji has made saint out of Orji Uzo Kalu!

      • solomon

        MARIA your name should be change to MALARIA because you are as wicked as devil OKOROCHA.

        • Contact Point

          The unwise solomon, you are as a deceit as much as your paymaster Toader Orchin. No matter what, 8 wasted years of that orchin can not be compared to just 3 years of Gov. Rochas in Imo. So since you re happy with that wastage, may it be yours

        • I Hate Sycophant Truly

          Pls can you itemise what make Okorocha wicked and if you see anything good about him let’s know. I would not like you to just criticize because he belong to so called Hausa/Fulani/Yoruba party or because he surchange party. Pls let’s know his policy to the state that made him wicked?

      • I Hate Sycophant Truly

        Pls let’s know what he did and what he didn’t do and probably if you know Rochas own pencil along and where he need to improve on.

      My brother, the AIT programme of Rochas Okorocha’s achievement is real. I am from Imo State, and am neither PDPig nor APC but truth be told, Rochas 3 years in Imo has made the 13 years of PDPig in Imo years of the locust, it was hugely wasted. I said am no party to any of the parties, but Rochas has done marvelously well.

      • I Hate Sycophant Truly

        Are you sure you’re not party freak. Can you outline some of Okorocha’s achievements fro people tosee and weigh them and if you know Orji own kindly outline along with his name.


    PDP is my beloved Party. T. Orji is a disgrace… even Mr. President has been blindfolded by this devil called T.Orji. … fools….. thieves and killers….. Non indigenous workers( Teachers) have been send home……Some of them died as a result of the ungodly act by T Orji….some are ill, some have lost their home because they can’t afford to keep them…. Some their children have been drop out from school….. or can talk about roads in Aba n other cities in Abia that T. Orji has use their money to buy houses in overseas…. Nigeria as am concern has no government.. because if they do, then tell me all this thieves called themselves leaders are being go scot-free at the end of the day while they suppose to face the law…n send to Jail…..
