Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, has berated Nigerian politicians for practicising what he termed primitive politics. The governor said this while reacting to the violence that characterised the APC National ward congress which took place over the weekend.
In a chat with newsmen after his meeting with President Buhari in Katsina state on Sunday, Governor OKorocha said this sort of ”primitive politics” were people are attacked and maimed during any political meeting must come to an end in Nigeria.
Speaking, he said:
“This kind of funny politics that we are playing must stop… we do not want people to carry ballot boxes and steal results. This looks so primitive. I intimated Mr. President and we will make sure that such things must stop. He spoke like the president and he will take the necessary steps to correct this in our party APC, not just in Imo state but across the whole nation, and to also make sure that there is respect for internal democracy in Imo state.”
