The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been described as a sinking party by the factional National Chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Maxi Okwu.

Speaking to newsmen in Owerri, Maxi Okwu called on Imolites to support Governor, Okorocha because of his position in All Progressives Congress (APC). He hinted that PDP is bringing nothing to the table, insisting that their structure has collapsed.

Hear him: “PDP is a sinking ship, as you are well aware, stalwarts of PDP are all joining APC. The people of Imo will be shooting themselves in the foot to key behind PDP. The election has come and gone and there is a change, adding that it may not be the change the people want nor believe in but we must follow suit or we go back to old order. We have had 16 years of civil rule, but according to him, today, with the emergence of APC, we now have democratic rule”. He said that he commended APC for taking over power from PDP after 16 years of locust administration.

He noted that supporting PDP will mean destroying the chances of Imo State connecting to federal government for infrastructural development. He hinted that even though Rochas was a product of APGA, it is ideal that Imolites go for APC and back Okorocha to enable him present the cause of Ndigbo, adding that APGA has a weak vein in Imo and could not deliver, insisting that for now people should go for Okorocha, as according to him, in adopting Rochas, APGA will survive. He noted that the people s hould support the Governor to be their eyes and ears at the federal level.

Maxi Okwu however urged all the PDP defectors to APC to have a rethink, adding that politicians should learn to be steadfast, focused and stand for what they believe in because according to him, PDP should be there to act as check to the ruling party, revealing that they are waiting for Supreme court judgment that will determine the authentic chairman of APGA, describing as unfortunate for APGA not to have presented Presidential candidate for two consecutive time.
