Owerri - Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has said he is not in a hurry to die, as he will live to complete his assignment for his people, reports Vanguard
Reacting to rumours that he was ill and went to an Indian hospital for medical treatment, Okorocha told a large crowd that gathered at the Sam Mbakwe airport in Owerr on Thursday to welcome him after 18 days of vacation, that he went to the land of the dead but was turned back by his ancestors.
The governor, however, acknowledged that he had a challenge that took him far from the physical.
He told the crowd that he was healthy and strong, adding that those who wished him dead were enemies of the state.
"I am not in a hurry to die; I will live to complete my assignment for Imo people.
"I went to the land of the dead and our ancestors turned me back saying it was not yet time."
There were reports that a ghost had slapped Okorocha at the Government House a few days ago.
The report also said the governor was rushed to India for treatment.
But the governor according to News 24 denied the report.
Okorocha said he is a Christian and does not know what it means to see a ghost.
