Okorocha: INEC was forced to declare me governor in 2011

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State

Okorocha also said that his chances of being governor were slim because no notable politician supported him.

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha says that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was forced to declare him governor in 2011.

Okorocha also said that his chances of being governor were slim because no notable politician supported him.

His comments were contained in a statement released by his spokesman, Sam Onwuemeodo.

“No single politician of note was standing with me. This was perhaps the only election in the history of Nigeria that was won by the support of the ordinary people and not by the support of the political elite, security agencies and money bags,” Okorocha was quoted as saying.

“That is my journey and that is my story. And those of you who had followed me could recall that in the political history of Nigeria, there had been nothing like supplementary election till my own election.

“My understanding of supplementary election is to do all things possible to prevent Rochas from becoming the governor of Imo State. This is the meaning of supplementary election which today is holding Nigeria in political bondage,” he added according to the statement.
