Imo State Governor and Chairman, All Progressive Governors’ Forum, Rochas Okorocha has attributed the resounding defeat of its candidate, Tony Nwoye in Saturday’s gubernatorial election in Anambra State to lack of unity among party members in the state.

Reacting to the election results won by incumbent Governor Willie Obiano of APGA, in which Nwoye came a distant second, Okorocha said the outcome of the poll was an eye-opener for the party members on the need to work together as a team.

The governor said Obiano’s victory was too clear to be contested or questioned and therefore advised the candidates of other political parties who took part in the election to congratulate Obiano and avoid going to court to question the victory.

Okorocha, however, expressed the hope that with the election, the future of APC in the South-East is very bright, and stressed that before now nobody would have thought that APC could do better than the PDP in an election in Anambra state.

Governor Okorocha also urged Nigerians to celebrate President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC led government at the centre for allowing a level playing ground for all the candidates.
