Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, has said he wouldn’t contest the office of president against President Muhammadu Buhari. He said this in Owerri, capital of Imo state.
“I will never run against President Buhari but would continue to support him in the overall interest of the nation, especially when he has stabilized the nation”, he said.
Okorocha also said he wouldn’t support any governorship aspirant who has “made many political enemies”.
“We need people with free mind. I have killed the clannish nature of the state where people consider where you come from before doing anything for you.
“The politics of sentiment must be discarded and discouraged. It is shame for somebody to hope on zoning to win elections.”
Equally, he denied his administration was indebted to various banks, but stated the state is servicing the N100 million bailout fund given to the state by the government.
