Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has made a surprising revelation that he cries every night over the upcoming 2019 Elections.
Speaking at an Easter Church service in the Okigwe Catholic Diocese, Okorocha said that the recent report that the South-East region recorded the lowest voter turn-out in the ongoing voter registration exercise made him ‘weep every night’.
He called on Catholic Bishops to sensitize their congregation on the need to get their voters card;
“A particular scenario makes me cry; INEC’s data shows that South-South has nine million registered voters, North-Central, 12 million registered voters, North-East, 15 million registered voters, South-West, 14 million registered voters, North-West, 18 million registered voters, while South-East has just eight million registered voters.
This situation makes me cry. I weep every night because of this development. This means that we have lost out before the 2019 election. If care is not taken, we will make ourselves slaves.
My lord bishop, please tell our people to register. Our bishops must encourage Igbo people to register now. I have started shouting again, the same way I shouted in 2015.
If Yoruba people can jettison tribal politics in 2015 to ensure that the APC won, Igbo people can do the same in 2019. Today, the Yoruba people are occupying sensitive positions in the Federal Government.”
