Okorocha Blames Detractors for Pasting His ‘Presidential Posters’ in Abuja

Governor of Imo State, Chief Rochas Anayo Okorocha, has denied the posters in Abuja and other Northern states having the Governor of Borno State, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, announcing his intention to run for the 2019 presidency with Rochas as the deputy, Thisday reports.

He described it as the handiwork of his detractors.

In a release signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemedo, it said that the governor sees the posters as another mischief by obviously some mischievous elements cowed by his monumental achievements in Imo and what he represents in the politics of the South-East and Nigeria in general today.

According to the release, those behind this mischief first invaded the social media with the fake posters and when they discovered that the comments by decent men and women had all doubted the source and the genuineness of the posters, they decided to paste them in Abuja.

It said: “On the part of the Imo State Governor, it is very difficult to capture what the folks behind this pettiness want to achieve or what must have prompted them, in the first place. Soon after the 2015 election, and knowing the leading role Governor Okorocha played in the South-East that put the PDP field Commanders on their toes, which prevented them from returning the kind of election figures they had returned in 2011 in the zone, and knowing that by virtue of that key role, Governor Okorocha should expectedly reap largely from the President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, they began their campaign of calumny against the Imo Governor.”
