A governorship aspirant under the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Imo State, Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, has said that the party in the state cannot be under the control of just one man.
This is coming weeks after, the state governor, Rochas Okorocha said he was going to run in the Imo West senatorial District, with the son in law, contesting for governorship election in 2019.
The arrangement did not go down well with some stakeholders of the party in the state.
While addressing his reporters at his Destiny Foundation office, in Owerri, Senator Araraume said that one man cannot take control the affairs of the ruling party in the state.
He said, “No one man owns the party. The party belongs to all of you. And whatever will happen in Imo state, will be decided by you.
“There is no one man, no matter who the person is that owns this party.
“This party belongs to all of us. You must work hard to ensure that this party is strong in your area.
“There is no any other party that will win Imo state. Our President will be voted again to continue from 2019. So, no one man will decide what will happen in Imo.”
He recalled that, “When they were moving around telling people that they will change our elected executives and I told them that nobody can change our elected executives.
“That is not democracy, we are not in the period of dictatorship. We have long passed that, it is now history.”
