'2015 Imo governorship election will be issue based'

09 January 2014, 12:02

Owerri - Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo on Wednesday said that the 2015 governorship election in the state would be issue- based

Okorocha also said that the election would not be  determined by any political party.

This information is contained in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Sam Onwuemeodo, in Owerri.

He said the state had grown to the level that only the people would decide who would govern them and not any party.

The governor said the state government would continue to resist the temptation to join issues with anybody, rather it would keep its records straight for posterity.

'The truth of the matter remains that by 2015, the Imo electorate would determine what happens with the governorship of the state and not any party,” he said.

Okorocha said that parties were free to present any candidate of their choice while the present administration would present its score card for Imo people to make their decisions.
