The Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, on Sunday ran to Daura, the country home of President Muhammadu Buhari in Katsina State, to appeal for the President’s intervention over the Ward Congress of the party held in his State.
Okorocha, who was reported to have lost out in the power equation in the state based on the outcome of the congress, which was marred by violence, told the President that what happened in Imo State on Saturday was funny politics that should be stopped.
The Chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum said after the meeting with Buhari: “We expect internal democracy and internal democracy is the way to go.
“Those kind of funny politics that were played must stop, where people want to carry ballot boxes, steal results looks so primitive.
“I intimated Mr. President and we will make sure that such things must stop.”
On Buhari’s response, Okorocha said: “He spoke like the President and he will take the necessary steps to correct this in our party, APC, not just in Imo State but across the whole nation, to make sure that there is respect for internal democracy in Imo State.”
