A former governor of Imo, Rochas Okorocha, has said that no leader in the state has broken his records while he was in office.
Okorocha said that he can even back up his claim in front of the present governor of the state, Emeka Ihedioha, whom he claimed is yet to achieve even one-tenth of his projects.
He said: “I wish you can meet the governor of Imo state (Emeka Ihedioha) and ask that Rochas said what he has done is not up to one-tenth of what I have done."
The senator said that he built the first international cargo airport in the state regarded by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) as the best in the country.
Moreover, he said that during his administration, he built not less than 30 hospitals although not all of them were completed.
The senator added that he built one of the best state high courts as well as the best police headquarters.
Lamenting that he is highly misunderstood in Nigeria, Okorocha said: “If I was told in my dream that I’ll be treated this way, I’d have said it’s not possible."
Concerning the rift between himself and the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, Okorocha said that he is eagerly waiting for an opportunity to meet with him in person and ask him what went wrong.
He said: "One day, the opportunity may occur that I might hear from Adams what really went wrong because till today I am very much confused as to what went wrong.
“I have tried to make an excuse for him that probably somebody must have gossiped or do something that he believed. Or alternatively, it must be a search for political power or relevance or it would have been who he is."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Okorocha had said that the APC might lose power in 2023 if the internal crisis within the ranks of the party's leadership continues.
Okorocha, who gave the warning on Saturday, November 2, in Kano state, cited the feud between Oshiomole and Governor Godwin Obasaki of Edo state as one of the internal crisis in the party.
