Former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Imo State, Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, has described the PDP as encouraging a culture of impunity, adding that the party does not respect democracy.
He said this on Saturday while addressing members of his campaign organisation, Destiny Organisation, in Owerri.
He said, “PDP is gone; the culture of impunity is gone. PDP does not respect democracy and that is what we should be against; the era of imposing candidates on the people is gone.”
Araraume described the state Governor, Rochas Okorocha, as the only true leader of the All Progressives Congress in the South-East by virtue of being the only governor of the party in the zone.
Although Araraume did not officially announce his exit from the PDP, he nonetheless urged his supporters to throw their weight behind the incoming administration of President-elect Mohammadu Buhari.
He equally urged the supporters to cue into the programmes of Okorocha for the progress of the state.
“We are going to support this government because it is our government. Collaboration and partnership make things happen. Same way Buhari sought collaboration from other parties and won the presidential election, same way we are going to collaborate with Okorocha to make this state better,” Araraume stated.
Speaking on behalf of the governor on the occasion, the Chief of Staff , Government House, Sir Jude Ejiogu, commended Araraume and his supporters for identifying and collapsing into the APC. He promised that the new partnership would continue to flourish for the development of the state. – culled from Punch.
