Okorocha also named former Senate President, Ken Nnamani who recently joined the party as leader of the APC in the South-East.
He said, “Hence the importance of Ken Nnamani coming at this time. I declined leadership of Ndi- Igbo in APC.
“With Ken Nnamani, the question of who is the leader of APC in the Southeast has been answered. Ken Nnamani is the leader of APC in the South- East.”
He added, “Senator Nnamani should then work with other leaders like Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Jim Nwobodo and a host of others to give Ndi-Igbo Political direction.
“Those who have joined the Party or who want to join should do so to build the Party and not to cause Confusion. APC is the right Party for the Igbo and the only Party that can guarantee Igbo Presidency”.
He said, “We are going to support President Muhammadu Buhari for the eight years he is going to lead the nation.
“This is the time for Ndi-Igbo to come and work together. We are also going to use the Anambra election to show that APC has arrived Southeast. “The Igbo played bad politics in 2015. Today we have lost a lot. We are not anywhere because of our bad politics.”
