I’m Contesting For Senate To Remain Politically Relevant – Okorocha Reveals

0

Governor of Imo State,Rochas Okorocha says he is contesting for a seat in the Senate so that he can remain “politically relevant” even after leaving office as governor.

Okorocha said this while speaking to the press in Imo State on Tuesday.

He lauded the effort of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure voters in Imo State are captured, just has he accused some politicians in the state of betraying him.

He said: “I am going to the Senate for two things: first reason is to represent Imo State and Igboland.

“The second reason is to make sure that what is due to us get to us. I want to be politically relevant after I leave office as governor.”

He accused Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and Rotimi Amaechi, Director General of the Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation, of sabotaging his ambition.

He continued: “Now, what is the interest of Oshiomhole and Amaechi in who becomes the governor of the state? It’s just to stop me, in order to hold the state politically captive, and I’m going to stop it.

“If I go to the Senate and Nwosu becomes the governor, they know I’ll be politically stronger for the presidential race in 2023. But, I’ll fight the conspirators to a standstill. What I‘m resisting is the systematic political colonization of Imo State.”

Okorocha maintained that Eze Madumere, Hope Uzodinma and others he purportedly helped, have all turned against him.

He said: “Look at Madumere. Today, he would have been a senator, but he betrayed me. The Hope Uzodinma he is supporting today, where is he from? Is he not from the same Orlu zone where Uche Nwosu comes from? Have you been to Madumere’s house? Is it not bigger than this Government House?

“Look at Emma Ibediro that I fought hard so that he can become the APC’s National Organising Secretary, today he has betrayed me.

“I made Osita Izunaso APC’s first National Organising Secretary. From being a Permanent Secretary, I made George Eche Accountant-General and later Secretary to the State Government. It is in their blood to betray people.”

A newlywed couple have become the couple with the most short-lived marriage after they divorced just three minutes after getting married.

Only seconds after they signed their marriage contract in a courthouse, the wife tripped and the groom called his new wife ‘stupid’ for tripping over. In tears, the bride demanded an annulment.

Local media reports that the judge officiating the ceremony dissolved their marriage on the spot. They had only been married for three minutes and this leaves them with the shortest partnership in Kuwaiti legal history .

Reacting to the divorce following what is now being referred to as the shortest marriage, social media users defended the woman and said it was no use wasting her time with a man who has no respect for her.

If this is how he acts right at the beginning, it’s better to leave him.

A marriage with no respect, is a failed one right from the beginning
