Speaking with reporters in Abuja on Monday, Okorocha said the ruling party could have been better but that some people hijacked it and became “lords”.

The former governor of Imo state said progressive-thinking citizens must come together to make Nigeria work.

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

According to him, political parties in the country do not have ideologies and are only a vehicle to power.

“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,” the lawmaker said.

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

The senator said President Muhammadu Buhari could have performed better if he had surrounded himself with good people.

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

“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.”
