2015: There Would Be Supplementary Presidential Elections, Says Okorocha

gov_rochas_okorocha1-300x187Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha yesterday, predicted that the 2015 presidential poll will end in supplementary elections.

The governor, who spoke against the backdrop of the May 6, 2011 supplementary elections that brought him to office, told newsmen at Government House, Owerri that supplementary elections have become part of elections in the country.

Okorocha has celebrated May 6 as ‘Freedom Day’ since he assumed office.

The governor note that as it stands today in the present political situation, he is the “only son of Igbo land” that has eyed the highest seat in the land while others are busy chasing shadows and other selfish aims.

Okorocha, who declined revealing his next political ambition, criticized some Imo sons whom he said, are in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, just for their selfish interests and not for the overall good of the people of the state.

He explained his decision to join the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying it was because PDP has no plans for Igbos, adding that this is evident in the way and manner the party has relegated Igbos to the background by giving them positions of national women leader and national publicity secretary only.

Okorocha lamented that rather than give the Igbos whom he described as major key players in the nations democratic process such positions as the party national chairman, senate president, among others, they are left without any tangible positions.

The governor also took a shot at his former party, the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), saying it is not an Igbo party as it only exists at Njikoka in Anambra state, the country home of the chairman.

  • The D5100 includes an AF-S 18-55mm VR lens, and is equipped
    with a 16. The macro mode, the self-timer,
    the flash modes and publicity compensation are accessible
    directly by means of the 4-way pad. I could well imagine that someone with large
    hands, however, could have problems.

  • Hello. Simply just wanted to inquire a simple dilemma.
    Now i am setting up my own, personal weblog as well as wish to recognize in which you’ve
    got your concept? Was that totally free? Or ended up being that
    settled? I can’t manage to discover anything
    as well as that one, thus preferably you’ll be able to
    let me realize. Thank you. PS, my own apologies.
    The english language seriously isn’t my own initial words.
