Ngige Reveals Who Brought APC And It’s Not Okorocha

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has denied rumours that the former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, brought the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the South East.

Speaking with Newsmen on Sunday, Ngige said he and the Minister of Science and Technology, Ogbonnaya Onu, formed the APC in the South East.

The former minister, who described himself and Onu as the fathers of APC in the region, disclosed that he brought Okorocha, Annie Okonkwo and Osita Izunaso into the ruling party.

He said: “We started the discussion even before I went to Senate. We started the discussion for the formation of APC between ACN and CPC. After the election, ANPP joined us. Then, I now brought APGA with Okorocha. Some people falsified issues to say that Okorocha brought APC to the South-East. It is not true.

“I and Ogbonnaya Onu were the fathers of APC in the South-East. I specifically brought in Okorocha, Annie Okonkwo and Osita Izunaso.

“They are the three leading people we brought into the formation committee. I introduced them during the first meeting at Tom Ikimi’s house as APGA faction, with Ikimi presiding. So, there is nothing there that will be told to me as a story.“
