Former Governor Peter Obi Joins APC , meets Governor Okorocha secretly over Biafra

www.odogwublog.com reports that former Anambra State Governor, Mr. Peter Obi, today met with prominent members of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Meanwhile,  Obi has urged Ndigbo and all other organizations agitating for the Independence of Biafra to work harmoniously together to achieve their aim.
Obi who stated this shortly after a private meeting with Governor Okorocha of Imo state in Owerri today also warned against the current approach adopted by the Federal Government in handling pro-Biafra agitations in the Southeast.
Obi insisted that the use of force or the continued incarceration of Biafra activists cannot quell the growing agitations.
But Obi when inquired about his alleged move to join APC , dismissed any plan to join the APC.
Obi said:  “I am a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and I am not dumping the party for any other party. So I am not joining the APC. I am here for a private visit that is all, nothing more, governor Okorocha is my personal friend."
According to him, the Federal Government should continue to engage all the agitators with dialogue as a means of finding a lasting solution to the challenges, particularly the issue of Biafra, which he said is given Igbo leaders serious concern.
Former Governor Obi said: “I have warned against the use of force against Biafra agitators. The Federal Government should be open to continued dialogue, which is what we are supporting. That is why I am here today to thank Governor Rochas Okorocha for his efforts in managing the Biafra challenge”.
He continued that, “our people won’t support the use of force against those agitating for Biafra, it is a very delicate matter that must be treated with caution. As a matter of fact, the FG should release all Biafra activists that are currently in detention to begin the process of meaningful dialogue”.
Although details of the meeting were not made known to journalists, but www.odogwublog.com gathered that it may not be unconnected with the plan by the former Governor to join the All Progressives Congress (APC).
