THE WILL

OWERRI, May 07, (THEWILL) – The candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha has been declared winner of the Imo State Governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

According to the Returning Officer for the election, Professor Hillary Ode Edeoga, Okorocha defeated incumbent Imo State Governor, Mr. Ikedi Ohakim of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to clinch the governorship seat of the state. He polled 336,859 as against Ohakim’s 290,496, while Ifeanyi Ararume of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) polled 107,068.

With results declared from 26 out of the 27 Local Government Areas of the state, having successfully concluded the supplementary governorship election in three of four LGAs on Friday, May 06, 2011, Owelle Okorocha was declared winner having fulfilled all other constitutional requirements.

The commission cancelled election in Oguta Local Government Area following the discovery of electoral fraud allegedly orchestrated by one of the political parties with the support of INEC officials. Security agencies have since apprehended those involved.

The emergence is an evidence of credible election in Imo state. Political traders have been defeated. Ohakim go & do more with your cohorts in jail!

After all the text messages composed against Owelle by Ikiri,his bragging & the Imo money he spread, yet he lost disgracefully to the destined. Am sorry for Ohakim because he has a lot to account for. Up APGA.

Though, I hail from Okigiwe Zone that has lost its remaining 4year term to Orlu Zone, I am comfortable okay by the pronouncement of Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha as Imo Governor-Elect by INCE.
It has showed that the Imolites (Igbos) are not selfish as my brother Ikedi Ohakim thought that their mandate can bought over. Having insulted us by sharing the State Money and the ones he borrowed, we still made our choice known to the whole world.
I thank God he failed….
God Bless Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha
God Bless Imolites
God Bless Ndi Igbo
God Bless Nigeria!
May the respectful souls of Slianed Corps Members rest in perfect Peace-Amen

Ohakim sorry my brother, you have tried your best upon all the money you shared just to retain the seat and you failed. this suppose to tell you that you cannot buy God’s blessing with money. You can go and continue eating your loot in jail because i know the real new face of Imo will not let you go score free. Sorry next time try to respect God in anything you do. you know too well that you never won election in 2007 this is the only reason why you should have worked for Imo so that they will re-elect you but you never did so instead you keep on intimidating the people that put you on the sit this should teach you a lesson but unfortunately it is too later. You will come out for Governorship again when you die and re-incanate and change your attitude. your own chance is gone byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

When a sitting governor is not declared winner from day 1 after the election, it must only be that he lost the election. Ohakim lost from day 1, but thought that the power of incumbency was enough to rig the election. Unfortunately, Owelle Rochas have the people’s mind, and Ohakim could not steal enough vote.

I got over 30 different text messages from Ohakim against Rochas. The more I got them, the more it became clear to me that Ohakiya will fail. I’m from Abia too. I’ve a dream that one day God will give Abia a good leader like ROCHAS.

Ohakim am the person who called u on ur campaign on radio 100.5 fm in 2007 asked u about free education in the state but u said dat not all sec & prim wil pay 4 dat we knw the lesprivedge in our community in dat case the poor ones will be free education ,but wht is happing my dear bros even ur own wife open her mouth and said dat school is made for rich men in the society and u in the other hand said u are ikiri aka mpa nobody can take away anytin u hold,see how u and ur wife use mouth and destroy ur political career. I even heared dat you flogged a rev father whc i dont believe till date but for the journalist i think i believe dat one. My advice to you ohakim is dat you have to learn to seek advice frm GOD and stop living arrogantly believing dat nobody is above you, too bad for. Go and reconcile with ur enemies dat way pple of imo we forgive u ur sins. Accept rochas with good faith and respect. Mbakwe will never forget in the mind of igbos yes he made a comment sayin “if i dont rule is it ur father or mother is going to rule” that was then bros learn to keep ur mouth shut. Very soon yuguda governor of Bauchi state state taste his own soup of life dat is just life no two ways about that mark my word.

I am an imolite permanently staying in johannesburg. From my view, I think the reason thy ohakim lost this election is because he has a quear character. He contested under the plathform of pdp, a party that could stand a chance of winning even when lucifer becomes their flag bearer. For a person like ohakim to loose this election despite his financial might, it means he has to give his life to christ and get discipled as a christian. Imo is not happy with him and I don’t think God is.

Yes! Owelle Rochas is a true leader, ofcourse a leader is one who shows the way and goes the way. Rochas has already shown the way by his philantropist activities. Given his anticidents, somebody who used his personal wealth and train a lot of people in school… i mean, we want Rochas, no two ways! is either Rochas or no IMO. Goodluck Rochas Goodluck Imolites Goodluck APGA and Goodluck Nigeria.

Ohakim, Ohakim, Ohakim the terriorist u c your life, i advice u to go and seek for forgiveness from God. At least this has taught u a big lesson that the evil that men do lives with them and no longer after. ur attitude stinks and ur over proudness and loud mouth made u loss d support of ur God fathers who u tot were as bad as u. rem by ur words on quote : D president is my personal friend and i enter his private bedroom any time i like , unquote. but u forgot that when God says yes not even u can say no. i dont have pity 4 u i will only say ROT IN JAIL.

Owelle, congratulations. Now like my brother has said, seek the wisdom of God first and you will make it like late Dee Sam Mbakwe. Now you have to understand that it’s not the God fathers that elected you, but the ordinary people of Imo state, so no excuses if you fail. Do not allow Iwuanyanwu and the dieing Arthur Nzeribe to come near you. Please try and embrace everybody, no matter his party affiliation.
What we need most is good and quality road net works and sound education and your name will be written in Gold.
God be with you.

    I lyk wat Augustine said.I jst pray Rochas doesn’t disappoint his people cos it was neida godfatherism nor nepotism that made him governor elect of Imo. If i’m privileged to see Rochas now,all i’d tell him is,PLS,MAKE D PEOPLE PROUD..I BELIV IN U,OWELLE

Ikiri, courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. Why are you sitting down helplessly moping like moron? Why you don’t want to join all the Imolite in the celebration of the victory of Owelle ndi Igbo ji eje mba. You should have thank your star that, the peoples mandate was not robbed and denied because, it would have been very detrimental and disastrous for you, your entire generation and all the political traders in Imo state. All the Imo Diaspora would have showed you that Imo state nwere mmadu.

As we are celebrating the victory of Owelle ndi Igbo ji eje mba, we should also thank almighty God in heaven for sending Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha to come and deliver the children of Imo State because, we have wandered so long in the wilderness under the bad governance of all the political traders in Imo State. We should ask God to grant him wisdom, long life and prosperity.

Do not loose sight of unity Government and always err on the side of caution.

Avert obsolete advice and focus more on innovatives for quality and efficient service delivery.

Review past mistakes to make the present an enduring one.
Consolidate on life experience and philantropy in your leadership quality to make difference.

Revert to equity to accommodate inordinate ambitions as prerequisite to sustaining true democracy in Imo state.

Never allow your tenure to divide the corporate existence of Imo state.
Make definite inroads into building an egalitarian state with high disciplinary potentials and respect to rule of law.

Integrate into the state with young,intelligent and dynamic personnels of greater human resource and marketing flexibility,drive and ambition to achieve target.

Think beyond APGA as your maker because your victory is already destined.

Always Glorify God.
