GOVERNMENT OF IMO STATE

PRESS RELEASE

 

The Executive governor of the state, Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha, OON, on Saturday, February 22, 2014 put to shame some chieftains of the Peoples democratic Party, PDP, in the state who wanted to use the visit of President Goodluck Jonathan  to blackmail him, when he personally received Mr President at  the Imo airport with other prominent citizens of the country.

The PDP chieftains in the state had tried to cause trouble in the state with the President’s visit, but the state governor kept his cool, and allowed wisdom to prevail, and went to the extent of urging Imo people to come out in their large number to receive Mr president.

Even the attempt made by the PDP leaders in the state to deceive Mr President to come to the state through Delta State Airport was rebuffed by Mr President himself who was said to have insisted to come through Imo Airport since he has no personal problem with Governor Okorocha.

But they succeeded in deceiving Mr President by importing PDP members in all the South-east states, just to give the President the impression that they were all from Imo State.

At the airport, apart from personally receiving Mr President, the governor also received the Vice President, Alhaji Namadi Sambo, the President of the Senate David Mark, the National chairman of PDP, Alhaji Muazu.

With these developments at the airport, some chieftains of the PDP in the state who had made concerted efforts to blackmail the governor out of playing his statutory role of receiving the President  as the executive governor of the state failed woefully, to the glory of God.
