The governor, according to the New Telegraph, attributed internal crisis in the APC to the loss the party recorded at the election.
He also alleged a lack of genuine commitment on the part if his party members in Anambra state during the election.
Okorocha reportedly said Obiano’s victory was too clear to be challenged.
