Frontline Imo State born rapper, Obinna Okoro aka Acharaman has revealed that he does not feel bad that his kinsman Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha lost in the gubernatorial election.
Acharaman who spoke to www.otowngist.com in Owerri on Monday said he is just an artiste and will end up working for any of Gov. Okorocha or Hon. Ihedioha should any of them have won.
He went on to say that he is not taking the elections personal because Hon. Ihedioha is an Mbaise man, rather he believes in the Imo Project, which means anyone who wins is an Imolite.
“Imolites have chosen to return Gov. Okorocha, it is the choice of the state. Who am I to say that the next governor must come from Mbaise.
Mbaise is just a part of Imo State and I don’t see any reason why everything must be about us. It is Imo politics not Mbaise politics. Had Mbaise been a state, it would have been a personal thing to me.
Hon. Ihedioha is a rich man and is not going to borrow money at the end of the day. I’m still struggling to make it down here, while he has made it and is still looking for more, so I am supposed to mind my business here and figure out how to grow”
He added that Imo State must move on regardless of the zone of the winner.
Although Acharaman hails from Mbaise, he was never seen on the campaign train of Hon. Ihedioha and this sparked up a rumour that non-imolites were picked ahead of him and other Imo State based artistes.
Although Acharaman did not comment on this area, other artistes from the area, condemned it, saying the outgoing Deputy Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives failed to realize that Charity begins at home in that area.
