I Will Continue To Exercise A High Level Of Tolerance – Okorocha
The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has slammed the opposition parties in the state, stating that he refuse to be distracted by their disturbing and insulting activities who, according him, think that their best action is to make plenty noise and hurl insults at him.
He made this known through the statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Sam Onwuemeodo.
According to the statement, the Governor reiterated that he would continue to exercise a high level of tolerance, which he has continued imbibe since 2011 when he assumed office.
He stated further that the state government had read the report about the protest in Abuja by those he described as “the personal rag-tag aides of the make-ups of the so-called Coalition, and who called themselves Imo youths.”
“We have also read another publication equally by a motley group answering Imo Stakeholders, talking about “vote of no confidence”. Those in the sick Coalition are also those who constitute the stakeholders”.
The Governor, therefore, called on Nigerians to question these elements the reason to why all their activities are taking place in Abuja, insisting that they took the stolen materials for the Imo State Congresses to Hotels in Abuja and were filling them there, until the Police came and arrested four of their aides.
Continuing, he said that the reported protest by their aides in Abuja and all they have been doing are in Abuja, stressing that “ the truth is that they cannot come into Imo State and do such things. Imo people do not know what they are doing”.
The statement recalled Imo Indigenes not to forget that the sitting governor defeated several other high placed individuals to clink the ruling seat in 2015.
He said, “We are talking about Rochas Okorocha who abandoned APGA said to be Igbo Party in 2014 and joined the merger that gave birth to APC at the risk of his second tenure, with all the Federal Ministers like Prof Viola Onwuliri, Deputy Speaker of House of Representatives and all the Federal Apparatuses working for the PDP Candidate, Chief Emeka Ihedioha in 2015, yet Rochas Okorocha defeated them through the ballot box.”
“And the achievements of Owelle Okorocha in the State as governor have exceeded the achievements all those who had governed the state since its creation in 1976, put together. So, in 2019 achievements will count a lot and noise making won’t count”.
“For the sake of emphasis, Rochas is going to finish very strong and by the grace of God and with the votes of Imo people, he is to see to the election of a worthy successor of his choice.”
“He has more than one thousand verifiable projects to his credit. All these noisemakers with some of them having multi-billion naira stores, courtesy of the money meant for their constituency projects when they were at the National Assembly, won’t fly in 2019”
“Imo is calm. These folks make a lot of noise in Abuja and sneak into Imo to avoid the wrath of the people.”
“By 2019, the picture will become clearer for Nigerians to appreciate the magnitude of the love of Imo people for Rochas, who has reduced the poverty level in the state from 57 percent in 2011 to 19 percent in 2017.”
