2019: Okorocha reveals what he’ll do to Araraume’s governorship ambition, speaks on Oyegun-led APC leadership


The governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has swore to stop Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, from becoming the governor of the state.

Okorocha said he did not oppose tenure extension of the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Executive.

Okorocha said this when he addressed newsmen in Owerri through his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo.

This was coming days after Okorocha, declared to run for Imo West Senatorial District, adding that his son inlaw, Uche Nwosu, will be the next Governor, while his Deputy, Prince Eze Madumere, will vie for the Imo East Senatorial District.

He said, “But I want to say this for the sake of emphasis. Senator Ifeanyi Araraume cannot win the ticket of APC for the 2019 guber in the State and can never govern the State. So people should not allow themselves to be deceived.

“In 2007, he won the ticket of PDP and failed the main election. In 2011, he also had the ticket of ACN and came fourth in the election. In 2015, he also failed the PDP Primary.

“ So, what magic would he perform in 2019? “You may ask, where were these elements when the PDP foot soldiers were invading Imo and South-East in general with Soldiers and other Security agents.”

They have sponsored lies against the governor over the outcome of the APC NEC meeting held in Abuja on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 in which the tenure of the National Chairman Chief John Oyegun and others were extended.”

“I am the strongest pillar of APC in the South-East and one of the pillars in the Country. “And I remain supportive in all ramifications to the John Oyegun-led National Exco of the Party.

“And there is no reason anybody should begin to create the impression that Governor Okorocha was against the extension of Chief Oyegun’s tenure.”
