The Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has denied knowledge of the 2019 Presidential campaign posters pairing him with his Borno State Counterpart, Kashim Shettima, currently circulating in Abuja, the nation’s capital territory.
A release by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo in Owerri, the state capital, described the campaign posters as the handiwork of the opposition.
The statement stated that it is a campaign of calumny to link the governor with the presidential campaign posters when he had already made public his interest of not running for the 2019 presidential election.
Part of the statement reads “Governor Rochas Okorocha is not known for double standard. Having told the world that he won’t run for the presidency in 2019 because of president Buhari, he meant it.”
