Rochas-OkorochaStill yet to come to terms with the controversy that trailed the outcome of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum election last week Friday in Abuja, Imo State Governor – Rochas Okorocha, has declared support for Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State whom he said won the election free and fair.

Speaking at an event in Owerri, the state capital, Mr Okorocha said it was unbelievable that some people will claim there was no election.

“I can’t imagine it in my life that anybody will come up and say we did not conduct an election,” Governor Okorocha said.

He added, “There was a free and fair election and the winner of that election was Amaechi.”
