But the truth is that, I am not happy that members of the Imo APC coalition were not allowed to participate in the local government elections and not given the opportunity to express their democratic rights. The APC in Imo State under Governor Rochas Okorocha is a closed system that doesn't allow for free association and movement of people . Coalition members were denied the opportunity to participate in the local government election. When I got complaints from those aspiring for chairmanship and counselorship positions who were denied their constitutional right. I feel for democracy.

Though there are pressure from my supporters, Ndi-Imo and other critical stakeholders for me to join another political party, I have not made any decision yet. Yes many people have come to me, It's normal in politics. When I decided, it will not be a rumor. Let it be known that I am still in APC."

We are in APC, but one thing is certain, we would not allow Okorocha turn Imo State into private political estate. We don't practice monarchical system of government. What we have is democracy, and I will protect and defend the interest of Imo people at all costs.
