I Retired Old Politicians In Imo So My Son-In-Law Can Be Governor – Rochas




Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has stated that now is the time for the young people of Imo to take over the mantle of leadership as he has retired the old politicians in the state.

The governor mentioned that he has retired the likes of Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Arthur Nzeribe, Chief Achike Udenwa, Chief Ikedi Ohakim and will by 2019, retire the likes of Senator Ifeanyi Araraume and Co, so that the young ones would come up.

The governor made the statement while addressing people of Ideato North when they came to pay him a solidarity visit earlier in the week at the Government House Owerri.

“I have few months to go but still, I have declared road revolution. The usual feeling is for out-going governors to pack money and leave at the end of their tenure, but, I will not pack money but to continue to work till 11.30am of May 29, 2019”.

“He has the mandate of the people and broad-based support. So, he will win the governorship election. And I will win the Senate election because the quality of Candidates and their records are key to their electoral success”.

He however stated that anyone that wishes to challenge Uche Nwosu should come out and do so:

“They should come out with the person that will Challenge Uche Nwosu and not noise making or propaganda. If they have someone who is better than Uche Nwosu let them come up with their person. I am waiting for them to come out and Challenge my own Candidate with their own choice. That is the way to go”.

On President Muhammadu Buhari, governor Rochas Okorocha said:

“I tell you today that Buhari will still win landslide in 2019 and it is a matter of Igbos queuing in. He has worked to earn the renewal of his mandate. And greater number of Nigerians will do that”.

Speaking on behalf of the people of Ideato North, Nze Luke Ekwueme assured the governor that they would continue to stand by him in all the elections more than they had done in the past.
