Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has washed the hands of his party, All Progressives Congress (APC), off the activities of the Boko Haram insurgents in the country.

He was apparently refuting claims by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that the terrorists were being sponsored by the opposition party.

The Governor who made the clarification during a breakfast meeting with political appointees and APC stakeholders at the Government House, Owerri, rather insisted that the strength of Boko Haram is in the disunity of the country.

Okorocha noted that the Boko Haram had been in existence before the formation of APC and urged party members not to allow such rumour to distract them from the love and support they have for the party.

The Governor condemned the crisis within the APC in some local government areas in the state and urged the party faithful to settle their differences and come together to move the party forward.

He stressed the need for the political appointees to have a change of attitude and cultivate the habit of sacrifice as well as carry people at the grassroots level along in the scheme of things.

The Governor told them that the loss of the recent Ekiti State governorship election by the APC was caused by the elite and the grassroots, adding that the leaders of APC in the areas were not on ground.

He expressed optimism that APC will win all the elective positions as well produce the next President come 2015, announcing that APC has concluded arrangements to embark on programmes and projects that will make the party more vibrant in the state.

Okorocha argued that the success and failure of APC lies in the hands of the party members and urged them to have a change of attitude to enable the party achieve its objective in the 2015 general elections.
