Okorocha’s son in law and 2019 governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Imo State, Uche Nwosu, on Tuesday, said that the ruling party was the cause of its poor outing in the Anambra State governorship election which was held on Saturday.
Nwosu said that the party’s woeful outing in the Anambra State governorship election which saw it not even winning any local government area in the 20 LGAs the Independent National Electoral Commission had collated results, was “self-inflicted.”
Nwosu accused the APC of not having respect for the founding chieftains and members of the party in the South East zone.
Nwosu said, “What is happening to the APC in the South-East is a result of a poor reward system.
“The APC undermined those who worked so hard to plant the party in the zone and instead embraced newcomers who do not have what it takes to endear the party to the people,” he said.
The APC chieftain maintained, “If the founding fathers of the party are not appeased and handed back the reins of the APC, its fortune will continue to go down.”
