Odigie-Oyegun is behind the failed Congress- OKOROCHA

Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha has finally cleared the air by stating his reasons why he believed the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), chief Odigie-Oyegun is working against him in the state.

“I spoke against elongation, that elongation is not good for our party when the national chairman of our party and some of his members believe that there should be elongation so that there would be no Congress as provided by the party’s constitution.” notes that Okorocha claimed that John Oyegun is after him and making efforts to relief him of the party structure in the state because he was against the tenure elongation of the Oyegun-led national executives.
As the chairman of APC board of governors, Rochas Okorocha has made public that Oyegun was biting him (Okorocha) as a way to make him pay for his stance against tenure elongation. Okorocha explained further that he was initially a lone voice in his criticism of tenure elongation not until the leadership of the ruling APC party also reasoned along with him.
“I spoke against elongation, that elongation is not good for our party when the national chairman of our party and some of his members believe that there should be elongation so that there would be no Congress as provided by the party’s constitution.”
“And I told them the danger if we do not conduct this Congress.
 "I was a lonely voice in that matter until it became an issue that picked the interest of our party leaders and I supported my position.
“I was saying that if we do not conduct congress and we conduct primaries, those people that elect our governorship candidates in the primaries would have been illegal.
“And that we might win election and somebody will just go to court to challenge the decision and they may go to court and win because we were elected by those delegates. That was just my position and they said no, the Constitution allows partial supremacy. ”
“The party supremacy does not override the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Great mind like the Vice President, who is also a SAN concurred with me on that position and that’s where we are today.
“They were giving a flimsy excuse that Congress would divide the party and we told them that the issue of not having a congress is worse than for us having a Congress,” he said.
 Okorocha hinted that his decision taken among the APC Governors Forum, opposing the elongation of the APC National Executive Committee (NEC), which Odigie-Oyegun is the chairman, may have led to his attempt to frustrate and truncate his political future using the ongoing congresses of the party. 
OYEGUN was not categorical with his statement as to whether the congress was cancelled or not but said that he was waiting for the appeal members. And fortunately while there, the secretary of the appeal panel came to the national secretariat and she was interviewed where she said there was no congress in Imo State, adding that there was even no material not to talk about congress held.
