Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has
explained the fight of Governor Nyesom Wike of
Rivers State in the just concluded re-run elections.
Okorocha told journalists in Owerri yesterday that
Wike did all he could to secure his office by making
sure that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won
majority of the senatorial, House of Representatives
and House of Assembly seats in the state.
He also appreciated that it was not easy to defeat an
incumbent governor because he would do all he could
to remain in power.
He said: “If the governor did not do that to make sure
he has majority of state and National Assembly
members, he would have gone”.
Speaking on the just concluded governorship
elections which went in favour of the APC, Okorocha
described it as a testimony that the President
Muhammadu Buhari-led government was doing well.
He said the APC would take over the governorship in
Anambra State in 2017, adding that “Anambra State
needs APC governor to succeed”.
Meanwhile, Governor Okorocha has assured the
executives and members of the Abia State chapter of
the APC of the support of his administration as they
prepare for the forthcoming local government
elections.
Speaking during a meeting with the members of the
APC in Umuahia, Okorocha said the party would take
over the government house in the state and urged
them to remain steadfast if they wished to succeed.
Okorocha, who was represented by a member of the
Imo State House of Assembly, Max Odunze, said the
state would be a better place if the APC took control
in 2019.
