Briefing journalists at his private residence in Owerri, Okorocha said he will rather support the president instead of contesting against him.

The governor said, “I will never run against President Buhari but would continue to support him in the overall interest of the nation, especially when he has stabilised the nation.

"I want to also say that those in Imo who made many political enemies should forget the Douglas House.

"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.”


Governor Okorocha however, said that his government has not borrowed money from any bank.

Debunking the rumours in some quarters by his political opponents that his recorded achievement in the state was done by borrowing.

The governor said, instead of his administration to borrow money, it had paid money borrowed by previous administrations in the state.

“My opponents have been imagining that I have borrowed money to do all that my administration has achieved in five years. The truth of the matter is that this government has not borrowed any money. For posterity reasons, this government is not owing any bank or person any amount except for the bailout fund that N100 million is being deducted from the source monthly. Any subsequent government that comes and says that Rochas borrowed is a criminal one”.

Meanwhile, governor Okorocha has recently revealed that he will not handover power to anybody from Mbaise ethnic region.
