2015: Gov Okorocha May Drop Presidential Ambition
Indications have emerged that the governor of Imo State, Owelle Anayo Rochas Okorocha may drop his presidential ambition and seek a second term as governor of the state.
Although the decision has not been officially communicated, it was gathered that such a move could have been reached after pressure on him to seek a second tenure.
The governor had said earlier that he will join the race to seek the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and even denied dropping his ambition when a newspaper report suggest that he may have settled for the vice-presidential slot.
However, the tone of the governor in while speaking in a media chat with reporters at the Government House, Owerri indicates that he may have had a change of heart.
The official hinted that he might stay back to lead PDP’s renewed plot to take over the state. He was quoted saying:
“I think I may stay back to protect the state from these men, because if I am away, they will come and hijack the state, but if I am around, they know they can’t come back to the state after all they did in the past. The indigenes are mounting pressure that I stay back to continue the good work. If not, I would have gone to take my rightful place.”
The Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, said although the Imo people had been pressuring Okorocha to seek re-election, he was still consulting on his presidential ambition.
