  1. We the good people of Imo state are watching. If they try the rubbish they are doing in Rivers State in Imo state, then Burhari,s word will be extended to I mo state, we the people of Imo State will make this nation ungovernable for them and there agents.

    • But the results of Imo Guber election of May 2011 gave hope for democracy and elections in Nigeria. The resilience of Imo electorate was cheered countrywide and even beyond. The result was as clear as crystal. So what is all this fuse about consolidating and joining and Ohakiming and all that? People need to stop abusing the courts and court processes.

  2. @ Evans , don’t ever toil along that side else you will be branded second shikau. You can now see what is going on concerning the said shikau. The world body had placed $7million usd dollars on his head and you know what such physical cash entails to the life of any individual that may haunt him down.
    Do yourself a favour by retracting such unwise word. I sincerely pity your person because even with ordinary $10,000 usd placement on your head ,your next kinsman around you will definitely effect your arrest. I love you so much that’s why i’m offering you this brotherly advise. For more details , pls read Vangurd News on shikau’s update. Thanks and God Bless.

    • @Owerri,$10,000 is too much to hand Evans in N10,000(Naira) will be more than enough to hand him at least it worth a day job payment and feeding for one of his unemployed Kinsmen in the village…I think he needs further advice.

  3. Tonye M. I. on

    What are your reasons Evans? The parties are before a proper highest judicial body. The weight of evidence before the Court etc will sway the judgment.

  4. Evil can never end in this world when people like Ararume and Iked can come out in public to talk.Ararume i thought you had HIV from which you got from Moris Ebekwe’s late wife Nkechi.I’m highly dissapointed at you guys.

    Pls Evans watch your words. Do you imply that Buhari or Buhari’s word is the problem of insecurity and kings in the land.

    It is good to insist on justice and fair play but making a state ungovernable is work of the devil and their is no peace for wicked.

    Dear Evans, Two wrongs can not make a right.

  10. we should be blaming d NGN judicial system…this issue would ve been rectified before now…two yrs on d long run,they re talking.lets pity our country,d constitution nd judicial system…stop blaming each other here…

  11. So Ifeanyi Ararume and Ikedi Ohakim are still in court foot-dragging about Okorocha’s victory in the 2011 guber polls in Imo state. Wonders shall never end. Any way this is the beauty of democracy but all i know is that the judges will do the right thing at the right time. Okorocha won both April and 6th May 2011 supplimentary elections convincingly. Ararume and Ohakim are hell bent in asking for the nullification of the supplimentary election that finally gave victory to Owelle Rochas Okorocha. Should the supreme court grant their request then a new date will be set aside for fresh election which i think will never go in the way of both Ararume and Ohakim. They will ever be rejected in all polls in Imo state henceforth.

    • @ Sab Chux , pls could you throw more lights on that analogy? The reason that lend credence to my question is that if such permutation occurs in the state , under which party or platform Mr Okorocha Rochas will vie for his mandate or re-election as case maybe?
      Are you aware that Mr Okorocha is no longer with APGA Party? I also take cognisance that the new adopted party of Mr Okorocha are not yet registered as case maybe by the the electorial body (INEC).Will the said APGA party in the state be able to fill back a candidate of their choice? Please , I need you to clarify me on these contradicting issues , thank you.

  12. Ebuka Amaechi on

    My advice to Chief Ifeanyi Ararume and inconsistent,ex-Gover -nor Ikedi Ohakim is to watch their un-nec essary desperation to revolt against the mandate freely given to visionary,philontra -pist,performer/mass oriented & democracy driven,Governor Owel le Richas Okorocha.In the history of Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha remains the only Governor that the entire Imolites voted for,stood & defended their votes against all forces of intimidation from the entrenched forces wtin/outside the State who due to high corruption coupled with selfish ambitions converted Imo State to personal estates & property at the detriment of the masses they were foisted upon by exter -nal & forces wtin the State.My honest advice to my ex-Schl mate at Enugu State, Mr Ikedi Ohakim & his Man Friday,Mr Afrobi is to beware of the Banana peals & trade cautiously in their morbid attempt to up turn the mandate,free -ly give to Gov. Rochas by the highly sophisti -cated Imo State voter s.

    • @ Ebuka Amaechi , pls you can join Mr Sab Chux to enlighten me on the above questions from me.Thanks and God Bless you.

  13. Owerri! The only thing i’ve come to realise about you is that you’re a victim of a biased mind,filled with hate and that hate scares you from always analyzing thing in logically so that the truth don’t come into your thought. But come rain come shine. Your hatred for the governor wouldn’t change the truth that he is 100% far better than your ohakim. Keep living in the dark clouds of hatred while others are clamouring for truth and light.

    • My friend you are the one being biased. Did you put a single effort to Okorocha in the state more than myself? You are not even APGA member which I’m a bonafide card carrying member of APGA in the state . We are relating something different on this platform but you came up again with another issue all together . When will people like you be wise for once?
      Can you quantify my effort during the supplementary election for APGA in the state that yielded victory to our Party near the state capital at Ngor Opkala for Okorocha to emerge victorious?
      I’m the one that ostracised him from the party? He is even the one that offended me by dumping the party that brought him fame and wealth without our consent. Pls , be careful when next you are challenging issues you knows nothing about. If you are intelligent enough , an avenue to put certain questions right was provided to you therein. Why can’t you help by proffering solutions to my questions above? I did not even invite a blunt person like you to my question rather it was thrown to those two enlightened minds. Guy I dislike this kind of approach . Are we going to cage Okorocha not to affiliate himself with any platform but there is no way this question above wouldn’t play out incase of other circumstances. Why can’t we make hay while the sun shines?

  14. Christopher Iyirhiaro on

    Who wouldn’t, Owerri? Do you know what is $7 million? If the US just place $1 million bounty alone on this guy’s head, it will not take five second for his best friend to give sedative to drink and package him to the US for reward. We must not act like those blood sucking demons who believe in killings

  15. Mr. Evil, Owerri, is it your grand father that threw Rochas out of APGA? Is Rochas no longer in APGA even when APGA organises programmes for him in different parts of the state to sensitize people to support his move to join APC? One just took place at Obowo recently just to mention but a few. Thank God you said you fought for Rochas to win the supplementary election of May 6. But I’m yet to know a sincere man and lover of truth and good thing, as you claim you are, who will be rejoicing when some people rises to steal the mandate he fought to win for someone. Owerri, your type can never deceive Imo again. We know very well you are not APGA, but a stupid PDP man. Yes, every PDP who helped steal some of our votes in 2011, is today claiming to have worked for the victory of Rochas in order to draw public sympathy. They are also claiming to be contractors that did some projects for the state govt. and have not been paid. We know you all and your antics and we Imolites are more prepared for all of you haters of good thing. For your information, owerri and your likes here, the road at Okpalla that join to Aba- Owerri road have been completed; the one that goes to some parts of Mbaise from Okpalla have been completed: Olagwu to Emerianwe have been completed: 105 out of the 305 modern concrete schools have been completed and equipped, go to Orji primary school and see it for yourself. These are the things Imo state have been begging for and today they have seen them under Rochas govt. in 2years. You cannot stop a man with God, if you try, you will die in shame. Thank you all.

    • Smart Ugo , you are also deviating from my questions. Also you are not being polite to me. I wouldn’t join you on that aspect. From the way I deduced certain facts from you , it seems to me you are among those conscripted beneficiaries of our statesmanship efforts that brought the existing Government in power . You are from diaspora.
      I don’t have such name in my script. I have consulted my files several times but couldn’t locate your name and that you are among those groups from abroad that are feeding fats from others efforts. But it shouldn’t be an issue because we all are from same state of origin. The way you wrote ULakwo as (Olagwu) lends total credence before me that I’m spot on point. Your man left us unceremoniously and that’s not the best way to play politics. That’s the reason why the Late Sam Mbakwe made history in the state . He doesn’t go solo but similar opportunities came before him rather he jettisoned it. A politician do not abandon his wards ask any tactical politician around you he will explain it better ok! The one you people embacked upon recently in Obowo is of late. The sensitization should have been carried out before joining any flagship . I know his ego robbed him on such moral act.
      I do hope , there are no place in the electorial body where a candidate will possess two different political parties to run any elective position in Nigeria. The more you provide answers to my questions above remains the best interest for we Imolite because I perceived a political doom for somebody . Thanks my brother Ugo , while looking forward to receive your answers from the questions provided above.

  17. Mr. Owerri, how can somebody join a party that is not registered yet? All the parties that wants to form APC, that is ACN, ANPP, CPC and a faction of APGA, are still parties of themselves. Then how can you say Rochas have joined APC when no one has? Maybe, we should get your head examined, Owerri. I know i have answered your question and i repeat, Rochas is still a father APGA can not afford to lose. In that i mean, he is still a member of APGA and until APC is registered, all the parties or people in the merger still remains in their parties. But i advice you to look beyond party and bring your eyes down and see how Imo State is being transformed in such a short time. God bless lovers of good things in Imo, not people who think it is their turn to rule and so decide to tell lies against a working govt. God forgive them.
