Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has said the clash between his supporters and those of a former senator who represented Imo West, Senator Osita Izunaso was nothing too serious.

Following the incident which occurred at the venue of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday, the governor noted that it was nothing to be worried about.

“Those bubbles and disagreements do occur, especially when people perceive injustice or something wrong,” he told Channels Television during a live interview on Sunday at the Eagles Square in Abuja.

“When you see many people speaking at the same time, then it becomes a noise; then when you see as a body shuffle and movements, then it could lead to somebody pushing another,” Okorocha added.

The clash occurred after some delegates from Imo and Delta states engaged themselves in a free-for-all.

This happened when President Muhammadu Buhari was addressing members of the party whom he asked to keep faith with the ruling APC ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Meanwhile, reports have emerged that the dispute was a fallout of the allocation of the APC National Organising Secretary seat to Imo State by the ruling party.

While the governor reportedly favoured Mr Emma Ibediro for the position, party stakeholders in the South-east region want all national officers from the zone to be re-elected.

After the clash, Okorocha, who is also the Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum, maintained that “What is so important is that there was nothing so serious that happened and everyone is fine.”

He was, however, optimistic that the convention would spur the party to victory in the coming general elections. (Channels TV)
