Published

Rochas-OkorochaGovernor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has declared that his ultimate desire is to unite the governors and leaders of the South-East to work with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government.
Okorocha, who is the Chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, Governors’ Forum, made this known yesterday, while addressing newsmen at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, SMICA, Owerri, on his arrival from Abuja.
“As the only APC governor in the South East, I cannot do it alone and I cannot also play the attendant politics of establishing a very strong relationship between the South East governors and the APC-led Federal Government alone. Hence, every governor and leader in the South East must be carried along in the whole thing”, Okorocha said.
Responding to a question, the Imo governor explained that while in Abuja, the South East governors were able to meet with Mr. President, adding that it was more than even reassuring that the South East people would work totally with the present administration at the federal level.
“We, the governors of the South East and indeed, the leaders from the area, are all determined to work with the President and the President himself is also more determined to work with the South East”, he said.
It was his considered opinion that all the imaginary worries about what comes to the South East is not absolutely necessary now, adding that the governors had been able to establish a very cordial relationship with Mr. President.
“We have been assured that the South East would not be left out of the whole political and economic equations of Nigeria”, Okorocha assured.

I Received Vision That I Would Be Governor – Oyetola

Gboyega Oyetola

Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola has stated that God revealed to him in a dream that he would be Governor of the State long before he joined the race.

He revealed this while speaking at a service held to commemorate the second anniversary of his administration at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Osun Province 1 Headquarters, Osogbo, on Sunday.

Oyetola said, “I am ordinarily not one who sees visions but on two occasions, I had a strange encounter. Imagine the son of an Imam, receiving a Christian song in a dream. That was my encounter.

“All I could remember on both occasions was the last line of the song which says ‘IleriOluwa ni lati se’. Outside of that dream, I had never heard the song before. When the impression was heavy on my heart, I called one of my friends to ask him about the song, and he told me the song was the Track 2 of Timi Oshikoya’s album.

“He went out and got me the album and immediately I started listening to the track, my consciousness was restored and then I had an understanding of what God was saying to me. That revelation has continued to give me confidence of victory each time I am faced with legal and political battles since becoming governor.”

Anyim Backed Out Of Defection Over Visit to Buhari – Umahi

Dave Umahi

Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi has claimed that a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari stopped former Senate President, Pius Anyim and National Assembly members from the state from defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He made the claim on Sunday while speaking during an APC stakeholders’ meeting at the Bouquet Lodge, Old Government House, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

Umahi claimed that Anyim who served as Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) in the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, and others refused to defect because he outsmarted them all.

“They were planning to ambush me, but it is difficult to catch the air,” he said.

The governor insisted that he consulted all the National Assembly members and the elders from the state about his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), adding that they all agreed to the defection arrangement.

“Let me tell you, I’m not afraid of anybody but I respect everybody. But I have said that if God sent me, this will be the last fight in this state,” he said.

Umahi added: “All these people that came together to fight me, they collect contracts, they collect monthly pay, they collect vehicles. And when they are asked to bring people that worked for us, they will bring their wives, children and relations.

“Now, they are dressing words for us. We are in chapter one, in Chapter two, I will publish all that I have done for the leaders of this state.”
