Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha has revealed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is not jittery over the candidature of People Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the 2019 polls.
There have been a lot of debate circling round since the emergence of Atiku as PDP’s presidential candidate ahead of the elections next year.
And Okorocha believes the candidates’ pedigree will be a vital factor at the polls, while at a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, he said: “I don’t know about talking tough. We can’t be jittery, history is there to speak, history is very important,” Okorocha said.
“Like I said we are not going to get involved in this verbal war with anybody, we will be talking about issues.
“If you say look you are not good, we will tell you what we can do and what we cannot do and what others cannot do. So APC is not going to engage in that kind of talk show, but we discuss on what our party can do for the people.’’
The Imo governor revealed that himself and five other APC governors were at the presidential villa to congratulate Buhari over his emergence as the presidential candidate.
“We are here on delegation of governors to come and congratulate Mr President for having emerged as the presidential candidate of APC in the 2019 election,” he said.
“This basically is the message we have come and to say that Mr President is more than ever ready for the entire exercise.”
