The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has finally declared to run for Senatorial seat in the forthcoming 2019 general elections.
Okorocha, while speaking at an event on Monday, said he had decided to run for Imo West Senatorial District, in the 2019 general election.
Okorocha said it would be a disservice to the nation if he failed to contest, considering his “wealth of experience” as a Governor for eight years.
Recall, that Post-Nigeria had exclusively reported a few weeks ago, that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, is positioning Okorocha to take over as Senate President in 2019.

“I have decided to run for the Imo West Senatorial zone, because if I do not, bad people will take the position. If my name appears on the ballot paper as contesting for the Senate, it will boost APC’s chances in the State. And many from my zone have said they will not contest if I am interested”, Okorocha said.
