He clarified: “Our party is APC. Don’t be confused when I said that there were bad people and good people in both APC and PDP. And that the good people in the two parties should come together for the good of the nation. I was only talking about a movement and not party.

“I have not left APC. I am still in APC. Nobody has (better) stake in APC than me. The worst insult I had in Imo and in the South East in 2015 was because of APC and President Muhammadu Buhari. APC was formed by President Buhari, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, myself and a few other people. But those on congratulations trip have taken over the party.”
