Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha has made known his intention to run for the upper legislative chamber in the 2019 general elections.
While speaking at an event on Monday, he said he had decided to run for Imo West Senatorial District in 2019 general election. He said his “wealth of experience” as a two term governor positions him favorably for the office of senator.
“I have decided to run for the Imo West Senatorial zone because if I don’t, bad people will take the position. If my name appears on the ballot paper as contesting for the Senate, it will boost APC’s chances in the state. And many from my zone have said they will not contest if I am interested.” he said
