Former Imo Governor of Imo Ikedi Ohakim has claimed he won the 2015 governorship election in the state.
Ohakim was reacting to claims by Governor Okorocha that Imo people hate him (Ohakim) and wanted him out of office.
In a press statement on Thursday, Ohakim said, “Okorocha does not like the truth. Going by the 2011 governorship election, Imo people loved Ohakim, so much. They voted for him [Ohakim] and he won that election.
“Don’t forget that the election was militarized. It also witnessed the kidnapping of the returning officer from Ohaji/Egbema local government, which had 34,000 votes.
“Don’t forget Ohaji/Egbema, remains a PDP stronghold and the votes were Ohakim’s votes. The votes from Oguta LGA, remains inconclusive.
“They did not allow it to be counted. If you put all these together, you will find out that Imo people did not reject Ohakim. Today, Imo people now know that Ohakim is a saint compared to Okorocha.”
