Former governor of Imo State and Senator representing Orlu Zone, Owelle Rochas Okorocha and his followers have been very tight lipped over their reported move to PDP.
A local tabloid in Owerri last week blew the lid open over the alleged plan to move from APC to the PDP which the newspaper claimed was being hatched in Abuja where consultations had already commenced.
Many other media outlets had also picked up the story of the alleged move to change party platform and reported it in their various platforms.
Interestingly, the Rochas Okorocha camp have not made any move to dispel the news about his possible defection neither have they coke forward to deny it.
There have been reports from notable media firms that Okorocha’s launching pad come 2023 General election would be the PDP.
This is probably owing largely to failure of reconciliatory moves between Okorocha and Gov Hope Uzodinma.
From all indications and investigations, it has become obvious that Okorocha can no longer find his footing within the party and trying to recontest for the Orlu Senate Seat in 2023 under APC might not work out well for him hence the move to dump the party for the PDP.
