Rochas Okorocha IMO State

I’ve retired Nzeribe, Ohakim, Udenwa –Okorocha

•Says Araraume‘ll also be retired next year

Stanley Uzoaru, Owerri; with agency report

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has boasted that  he retired politicians like Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Arthur Nzeribe and former governors, Achike Udenwa and Ikedi Ohakim, to pave way for young ones to come up.

Governor Okorocha, who spoke when more than 3,000 Ideato North people, including their chiefs and leaders came to pay him solidarity visit yesterday, at the Government House, Owerri, also promised to retire the likes of Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, among others, by 2019.

The governor said he would continue to work as governor, including inspection of projects till 11:30a.m. on May 29, 2019, when his successor is expected to take over from him. He said he came to run for the governorship when no one believed he could do that  and win outside the PDP.

“I have few months to go, yet, I have declared road revolution. The usual feeling is for out-going governors to pack money and leave at the end of their tenure, I will not pack money, rather, I’ll continue to work till 11:30a.m. of May 29, 2019.”

He insisted on his stand to contest the Imo West senatorial seat and equally reaffirmed his support for his Chief of Staff, Nwosu for governor in 2019.

Okorocha, who boasted that he has retired all the bigwigs in the state politics said he had no doubt Nwosu will win the governorship election, considering his pedigree and humble background.

He said Nwosu has learned the ropes and better qualified than any other aspirant. “Uche is the least of the political children I have trained, Madumere is there too, but, non of them have I known like Nwosu. I took him up when he was just nobody and he grew to the height he is now, same with Madumere. Nwosu’s only sin is that he is my son-in-law, how about the Njemanze’s, the bishops from Egbu, they occupy every position in Egbu without considering who and where they came from.

“Nwosu will win in 2019, don’t be afraid , I am there, I have retired the Arthurs Nzeribes, the Udenwas, now I will retire the rest of them finally, I know them and they know me, their plan is to push me, so they can get the Senate, it’s a lie, I will run for Senate,” Okorocha declared.

“Nwosu 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.

“They should come out with the person who will challenge Nwosu instead of making noise or propaganda.

“If they have someone better than Nwosu, let them come up with the person. I am waiting for them to come out and challenge my own candidate with their own choice. That is the way to go.”

    Nwafor you have said it all. Okoroawusa is a bastard from the North. When he made money from 419 in 1991 in Ikorodu Lagos, he invested the money in the North. A 419 who later become a politician. The Imolites are waiting for you and stupid Nwosu, you people will be ashamed of yourselves in 2019.

    You better begin to find where to run to, you will be in jail come 2019 because of the havoc you caused in Imo state.

    We have been taking our time to analyze Okorocha and everything about him and have concluded that he is a psychiatric question. He has a mental problem. No sane governor even at the highest peak of provocation would visit his own people with evil the way he does.

    It has now dawned on the people what power can do to some people. Okorocha is the present day Biblical Kings Agrippa, and Nebuchadnezzar put together. And the same way Goliath, armed to the teeth with all arsenals and sophisticated weapons of war went about roaring and railing against the people of God, the Israelite challenging them to bring any power to face him, that same way Okorocha is threatening and daring terrified Imo people with all he can. And he forgets that God rules in the affairs of men.

    The same way Okorocha is boasting that he has retired notable Imo citizens from politics that same way God will raise a David amongst the people to demolish him and all he represents come 2019. Nothing lasts forever.

    The over 98% Masses of Imo citizens, who rejected him in 2015 before he was fraudulently manipulated and rigged into the position again, are waiting for him this time around, because what he wanted is to rig the guber elections again to entrench himself and his roundly rejected son-inlaw.

    No more ballot snatching, rigging or money for votes in Imo politics. Let us talk less until then. Okorocha the masses of Imo citizens have nobody to fight for us but God almighty who created heaven and earth. You are definitely not superhuman, even if you are, something, someone, somehow will bring you down.
