He urged his supporters and Imo People to vote out governor Rochas Okorocha if they want a glorious future, saying “That re-election of Chief Okorocha will be a bad omen to the good people of Imo State.”
On the rumours that he has defected to APC, he debunked the rumours and hate campaigns that he has joined the APC or had any dealings with Gov Okorocha, saying that such falsehood was a cheap blackmail and gossips and handiwork of idle minds and mischief makers.
