I was Rochas before governor and the Rochas itself is bigger than the image of a governor. If I remove the mask of governor you will see the real Rochas. The real Rochas is not by any means a tiny person in every ramification. I advice the persons writing petitions to stop wasting their time.
I am proud to say that I have brought investments in this land and have encouraged my family members to bring their investments here. The economy of Imo State is booming more than it ever did since creation because I demonstrated it by bringing down my investment and encouraging my friends and family members to do same.
I salute my family members who brought back their businesses from Abuja to this land to create jobs for our teaming youths. Let no one take this sacrifice of ours to mean stupidity.
I challenge the incoming governments to do same for by so doing Imo would develop economically more than it is now.
