Okorocha Speaks On Buhari’s Second Term Presidential Bid
Governor Rochas Okorocha
Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state has said he would sacrifice his 2019 presidential ambition if President Muhammadu Buhari will contest.
Okorocha said this on the sidelines of the APC National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.
The governor disclosed that should Buhari signifies interest to run for 2019, “we will support him.”
According to Okorocha, the president would follow due process by signifying his intention to run in 2019 as the APC is against the imposition of candidates.
He said, “My president is very democratic. If Mr President wants to run for election, he will follow all the processes and if he is the person, we will all support him.
“In APC, there is no imposition of candidate. If Buhari is running, I will allow that man to continue, but if he is not running, I won’t sacrifice my presidential ambition.”
