Okorocha

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state and Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum, has called on Nigerians to show patriotism over the postponement of the February 16, 2019 elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)

While regretting the postponement, Okorocha said institutions like INEC are not immune from challenges.

Okorocha told newsmen in Owerri on Sunday that as unfortunate as the action was, APC, as the ruling Party, was ready for elections any day and any time, stressing that no political party should be blamed for the postponement.

He said, “The postponement of the election by INEC is an unfortunate development and also regrettable. But, it is important to note that no political party should be blamed for the postponement, but rather on the challenges of INEC”.

“It happened in 2011 and in 2015 respectively. I only want to urge INEC to use the week of postponement to resolve all the challenges it has and ensure that Nigerians have a smooth, free and fair elections”.

According to the governor, “APC as the ruling Party is ready for the elections and it will be absurd to accuse the ruling Party of being responsible for the Postponement. I call on all Nigerians to show patriotism by maintaining peace and understanding at this trial time in our democratic growth.
