The Imo State Chapter of ruling party All Progressives Congress, (APC) has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term in office, while passing a Vote of Confidence on State Governor Rochas Okorocha.

The communiqué reads:
“The entire APC structure in Imo State affirms implied support to the endorsement of Mr President’s in 2019 Presidential elections by the 24 Governors of APC extraction. We wholeheartedly align with this progressive agenda as it is the only way to sustain the gains of credible and transparent governance which have been the hallmark of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, especially in sustaining the fight to restore the integrity of the country by lifting her from the cesspool of corruption,
It continued that:
“We commend the visionary and dynamic leadership provided by His Excellency, Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha, OON, which has continued to drown the opposition in Imo State.

We retain implicit confidence in them.
