The Imo state government has said a former Vice-President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, cannot return the state to the Peoples Democratic Party in 2019, adding that the All Progressives Congress is fully in charge.

It also urged the former vice-president to leave the state and its governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, alone and face his multifarious political challenges.

Atiku was in Owerri last Thursday for a meeting with the stakeholders of the PDP in the state over his presidential ambition, where he insisted that Imo State would be a PDP state.

In a statement signed by Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo,  and made available to our correspondent on Sunday, the government stated that his ambition of taking the state away from the APC would not work.

The statement read, “What we do not take from anybody is blackmail against the government of Rochas Okorocha. We would do our best to set the record straight. The former Vice-President would have done his meeting without scratching the governor and the government he heads in the state and that is where we come in.”
