Okorocha further alleged that there is an ongoing conspiracy to clip his political career.
He continued: “Why I say so is there seems to be a gang up and conspiracy to hold me down politically but I don’t think they can hold me down politically because what God has ordained must surely come to pass. I will leave you for good and I will wish you well."
