The Action Alliance which was formed by Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha has thrown its weight behind Atiku in the race for Aso Rock, Vanguard claims.

Governor Okorocha formed the AA in 2005 after he was unable to secure a presidential ticket in the PDP and APGA years back.

It will be recalled that Okorocha’s son-in-law and anointed candidate to succeed him as governor, Uche Nwosu dumped the APC for AA after he failed to obtain the party’s ticket for the gubernatorial elections.

In a statement by its national secretary, Kenneth Udeze, the party made it clear that it is in support of the Atiku/Obi ticket.

He said: “We are for Atiku/Obi leadership and we are glad to work with all believers of true federalism and efficient administration of governance at all levels to accomplish this as we approach the forthcoming elections.

“The National Executive Committees (NEC) of our party are on the same page concerning our support for Atiku, same with all our state chapters in this matter.

“We hereby restate out position through this medium that AA as a certified and active member of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has not for a moment reconsidered or wished to alter that position.

“For your information, AA moved the motion for the adoption of Atiku as the Presidential Candidate of CUPP, and we are on it to the end.

“It is our unshakable/unfailing resolve to work for the emergence of Atiku/Obi, in the presidential election, and that we must not only be seen to be doing, but to truly do.
