The Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has revealed that some members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) feel they have been marginalised.

Okorocha also revealed that the APC has not managed its 2015 election victory very well, adding that there is hunger in the land.

The Governor said President Buhari will summon a meeting of stakeholders of the party, to address various issues.

He said “As you can see, this is my very first time coming to the office of the Speaker. I have come here to look at issues as it affects our nation, our party in particular. I have been to the national office of our party and I have had meeting with the national working committee.

“I have also visited the Senate, where we also had deliberations and I am here with the leadership of the House where we have also deliberated on a lot of issues on how to move our nation forward and how to move our party forward.

 “Today we are proud to say APC is not an opposition party, it is the ruling party of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“This victory of ours is very dear to us, but we are concerned that our victory so far has not been properly managed due to anger, bitterness among the members of our party at different levels and at different cadres.

“This calls for concern and that is why we are trying to bridge the gap to close ranks on how to unite, provide governance, leadership to our people, Nigerians and also move our party forward. “It is true that our nation is going through difficult times, but with unity of purpose, we shall overcome. There have been so many complaints and distrusts, confusion and we have resolved as a people, as governors, as senators as federal House members, as national working committee members to come together and resolve these issues once and for all.

Governor Rochas Okorocha had earlier called on President Buhari to carry APC members along in his administration of the country.
