Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state has distanced himself from 2019 Presidential campaign posters carrying his image.
In a swift reaction, the Imo state governor issued a statement through his chief press secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, Vanguard reports.
“On the part of the Imo state governor, it is very difficult to capture what the folks behind this pettiness want to achieve or what must have prompted them, in the first place.
“Since 2015 elections when he cowed his detractors, they have never left any stone unturned to ensure that they put knife in the enviable relationship existing between the president and Governor Okorocha. Their latest unfortunate outing is the posters in question.
“Interestingly, Governor Okorocha has for sometime now been reported to have told those willing to hear that he won’t run for the 2019 presidential election because of President Buhari. And by repeatedly saying that, he succeeded in disarming the little minds who had used that issue to blackmail him.
“And now, they have begun to publish about Okorocha being the vice-presidential candidate to Governor Shettima. And for the sake of exposing these petty minded fellows, one can ask whether Rochas and Shettima would start campaign in 2016 for 2019 election?” the statement read.
