Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has definitively stated that, if it hadn’t been for President Muhammadu Buhari, he would have contested for the 2019 presidential election and none would have beaten him.
The Governor who has been embroiled in controversy was recently criticized for erecting a statue of South African President, Jacob Zuma in Owerri the Imo state capital. He went further to reiterate that the entire South east and South south governors are in full support of President Buhari’s re-election in 2019.
Governor Rochas made this known yesterday when members of the Democratic Youth Congress DYC paid him a visit, in his own words, “We are having a situation in Nigeria where all the parties will present one candidate. All the South East governors are in support of Buhari. In the entire South South same, also that of the South West including all the Northern regions. One or two persons will make up their minds in no distance time.
“If not for Buhari who made me to step down my ambition who else, because minus President Buhari, I can defeat any of them in the Presidential race”.
