Imo 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.
