 UPDATED EFCC stopped me from going for APC presidential screening Okorocha

The Operatives of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday, invaded the Abuja residence of former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha.

Former Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State and presidential aspirant on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC has raised the alarm that operatives of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have denied him from participating in the APC Presidential screening.

Vanguard gathered that operatives of the EFCC had earlier today laid a siege to the residence of Okorocha, but details of their visit were not disclosed, barely 24 hours after he hosted some presidential aspirants on the alleged political alliance.

Okorocha, who addressed pressmen in his Maitama district of Abuja residence, simply said, “The operatives of the EFCC have not allowed me to go for the screening.”

 

The ruling APC had postponed the screening of its presidential aspirants earlier slated for Monday, May 23 to May 24 Tuesday and May 25 Wednesday (Today and tomorrow).

 

Recall that the party has postponed its presidential screening twice, violating its timetable and schedule of activities for the 2023 general election.

Two Signs APC Still Not Ready to Govern After Buhari By Farooq Kperogi It’s OK to despise PDP and Atiku Abubakar. I do, too. But the truth is that, of Nigeria’s major political parties, only PDP has shown a readiness to govern at the national level from day one. We may not like how they’ll govern, but they’re at least coherent, earnest, transparent, and predictable. The party held its convention on schedule and submitted the name of its vice presidential candidate to INEC on deadline–with little or no internal rancor. APC, on the other hand, needed to extend the date of its convention by one week. Even so, it almost asked for another extension, and its poorly conducted convention spilled over to the following day. It also couldn’t turn in the name of its vice presidential candidate to INEC on deadline and instead submitted a “placeholder,” a vexing political anomaly Nigeria hadn’t witnessed before, which smaller parties have sadly quickly copied. That bespeaks a disorganized, ramshackle, “fire-brigade,” spur-of-the-moment, not-ready-for-prime-time political party. No party can effectively govern a sick, complex country like Nigeria with such indiscipline, insouciance, and planlessness. Should the party be voted into power in 2023, given its aggravating indiscipline and incompetence in organizing a mere convention and appointment a running mate to its presidential candidate, you can bet that it will repeat Buhari’s template of delaying the appointment of ministers and constituting boards of government agencies by several months. Or worse. We all know how that turned out for Buhari–and Nigeria. Governance never took off, directionlessness took over, a recession hit, and the economy tanked. The country hasn’t recovered up to now. It seems indecision, indiscipline, impunity, and ineptitude are inescapably inserted into APC’s DNA. For example, after its delegates convention, the party is now busy removing the names of people who won primary elections and replacing them with the names of party hon honchos who didn’t participate in the primaries. It is said that indecision is the graveyard of good intentions. APC doesn’t even have good intentions to start with. So, it’s burdened with a double whammy of indecision and no intentions.L
