The Governor told the party stakeholders that the party would have mock primary on September 1, 2014 which would precede the main primary; adding that the mock primary would be community based because the candidates the party would back in the primary proper would be the persons who got more popular support from the people in the communities that make up their respective LGAs, or state constituencies or federal constituencies or the senatorial zones.

 

According to the governor, the people at the grassroot must be fully involved and that the party would press for popular candidates that will win elections for the party no matter the zone they come from, charging the aspirants to go home and mobilize and do not hope that anybody would give them ticket through the back door.

    The problem with Okorocha is wrong party. APC is Boko Haram and Boko Haram is APC. If not, Okorocha is the best after Mbakwe. I wish Dee Rogers will change party to any party hence not PDP. APC is not for Easterners irrespective of everything. Think Twice Rogers

    I have said it before, election is a game of number. We respect Okorocha Rochas, but let this fact not escape his mind, whether he is contesting or anyone else approved by him or the state may find it difficult to gain our votes if Nkaraha road he started in 2011 is not completed clean and clear.Nkaraha is in Mgbuisii autonomous community in Ohaji.

    Okorocha please, complete the roads you started in Orlu zone before May 2015. You know what Imo state is like toward Orlu, once a new governor who is not from Orlu zone succeeds you 2015, he will never build one kilometer of road in Orlu zone. They would rather want to build overhead bridges, flyovers and even underground metro system in Owerri.
