Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha, has lamented Atiku Abubakar’s defection from the All Progressives Congress.
Speaking with journalists after he received an honorary doctorate degree at the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State on Saturday, he recounted Abubakar as a heavyweight politician.
He said, “I have taken a holistic view of our party, it (Atiku’s exit) is not the best because no matter how anybody thinks, Atiku carries some political weight. His leaving our party is not the best.”
Rochas further stated that since Atiku had decided to move on politically by going to another political party, the APC would make amends and his (Atiku) place would be filled up accordingly.
