The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has explained why he renamed President Muhammadu Buhari ‘Okechukwu’ in 2015.
Okorocha disclosed that he named Buhari Okechukwu because was he was trying to woo the South East into voting for him.
He spoke at the South-East presidential rally for women and youths held at Dan Anyiam Stadium in Owerri, the state capital, on Saturday.
The governor also declared that Buhari’s victory in the forthcoming election was sealed and delivered.
According to Okorocha: “In Imo State and by extension South-East we need Buhari more than any other zone in Nigeria because we know what Buhari victory in 2019 will be for Ndi Igbo.
“It is for this reason that we therefore urge all of you, the Campaigners of Buhari not to waste your time in Imo State. Imo Victory for Buhari has been signed, sealed and delivered.
“Standing here today, is that lonely voice in 2015 who stood for Buhari when no one believed in him. It was still on this same premises that I renamed Mr. President in order to woo the votes of Ndi Igbo.
“I named him OKECHUKWU BUHARI GOVERNMENT KA ORU NDI IGBO AKA OSUSU. At that time, most of the gladiators or those who seek interest now were never there. I provided victory when it was very difficult.”
