You Are All Failures, Okorocha Fires At Igbos, Gives Two Reasons Why The Igbos Will Continue To Be Failures In Imo State

172

Rochas Okorocha has berated Igbos for being failures in politics. Speaking on this, the out going governor of Imo State gave his reasons for asserting so.

The outgoing governor gave two reasons to back his claim.

Governor Okorocha said this while briefing reporters at the government House in Owerri on Monday.

He noted that one of the reasons why the Igbos failed was their failure to accept the light coming to them.

He also claimed that the Igbo did not appreciate the person who came to assist them.

Okorocha went further to describe what is delaying his certificate of return as “the game of politics,” adding that he was confident that the certificate as Senator-elect for Imo West, would be given to him.

Okorocha also challenged civil servants in the state, to open up whether his government was owing them.

On the Imo West senatorial election, he added, “elections have come and gone and we are dealing with the outcome.

“For the Imo West senatorial election, somebody said that he declared the result under duress. The truth is that the gentleman was employed to do a hatchet job and he could not do that.

“The drama is that he had another option he wanted to declare it in Owerri, at first he said there was no result and at a point he entered the toilet and suddenly he saw the results sheets and shouted who dropped this result here. What it means is that there is a game.

“I think that the INEC, should do the needful. We are in court and I think that we don’t need much procedure to do the right thing.”

Okorocha added, “After that declaration, Imo PDP, went to town with the allegation that I have withdrew N17 billion. It is not possible.

“I have said this time without number, and I gave banks in Nigeria, seven days ultimatum to come and tell the world If I have borrowed from the banks any money not only that, I am not owing any worker in Imo state, I also challenged them in seven days to come out and say the truth.

“I am happy to bow out of government but I want to appeal that there should be peace in the land.

There should be tolerance in the land. I here that they are counting my property, they should also go to Abuja, and count the ones in Abuja.

“Igbo have failed politically for two reasons, not to accept the light that has come to them and also not to appreciate the leaders that have come to help them.”

I’m Going To Be A Bridge Builder In The Senate… Okorcha Declares As He Reveals What He’s Proud To Leave Behind

Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has said he is leaving behind a viable and secured state.
Okorocha said this when he received the New Commander, 34 Field Artillery Brigade of Nigerian Army, Obinze, Brig.-Gen. Yusuf Tukura, who paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House Owerri, on Monday.

According to Okorocha, his administration in the state from 2011 to 2019 saw to the disappearance of vices such as kidnapping, armed robbery, ritual killings, baby factories and militancy.

He added he would not be happy to hear that these crimes are back in the state after leaving office.

The governor also explained that he would be going to the senate to pursue the policy of free education so that children of the poorest in the society would have hope of survival in Nigeria.

He also promised to rebuild what he described as the political bridge that would link the South-East with the rest of Nigeria.

“We have enjoyed a very good working relationship with all the past army commanders and we are hopeful it will continue.

“I will use the opportunity in the senate to rebuild the political bridge that has linked the South East with the rest of Nigeria.

“The political bridge is somehow faulty and it is dutifully incumbent on me to rebuild it so that Igbo people will play a recognised role in the politics of Nigeria. I will also promote the course of ordinary Nigerians,’’ he said.

Tukura said the visit is to inform the governor that he has assumed the command of the brigade, and to familiarise himself with him.

He added that he was in the state in 2011 and he is back in 2019, while commending the governor for the transformation that has taken place in the state between 2011 and 2019.
