We will form new party that will challenge APC, PDP

Former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, said on Monday that a formidablepolitical party will soon be launched.

He noted that the new political platform  will provide a credible alternative to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He noted that he and other progressive politicians are planning to form the new political order.

He stated that there is an urgent need for the regrouping of the ‘good politicians’ to restore public confidence in the way Nigeria is being governed.

He said: “The movement for a new Nigeria has begun and we must come together, I mean progressive Nigerians, to make the country work.”

The Senator said: “APC was a hurried arrangement formed to take power when the then government was drifting.

“APC would have been better until people who were not members of the party, people who came for a congratulatory message, hijacked the party and became Lords.”

“The issue is not about APC or PDP. It is beyond political parties. We are talking about the character of the politicians.

“Political parties in Nigeria don’t have any ideology; it is just a vehicle to come to power.

“So, what we have is not the ideal thing. We have so many people who are not interested in working for the nation.

“For instance, if President Muhamamadu Buhari had surrounded himself with good people, the story will not be the same today.

“We have bad people in APC, just as we have them in PDP and that was why I made the call in Rivers State that the good ones should come together to lead the people.”
