Imo Governorship aspirant Jerry Chukwueke resigns from APC, accuses Okorocha of corruption


A governorship aspirant in Imo State, Jerry Chukwueke, has announced his resignation from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

Chukwueke announced his resignation in Owerri, the state capital.

“The party in the state has not only lost focus but has turned out to be a disgrace which bothers so much on the inability of the governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha to revive the economy and improve the wellbeing of the people of the state, as well as lack of financial probity.

“Imo state has not published its financial statement since 2015 and we have no answer to the assessment of the financial wellbeing of Imo state.”


He said “because of lack of financial transparency, Imo economy has nosedived,” arguing that, “no private establishment will bring their businesses where they are uncomfortable with the government policies.”

He however declined to mention the new political party he would be decamping to.
