The Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, has said he is ready to congratulate whoever emerges the winner of the governorship election in the state, if he loses the poll.
The 52-year-old Ideato South-born politician stated this in an interview with newsmen minutes after casting his vote at Ogboko Ward 2 in Ideato South local government area of the state on Saturday.
“I will congratulate whoever wins the election. Why not? But, first, let us do things properly,” Okorocha said.
The governor, who said the card reader failed to capture his fingerprints during the accreditation process in his ward, commended the Independent National Electoral Commission in the state for the smooth conduct of the election.
Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha (born 22 September 1962) is a Nigerian politician from Imo State, Nigeria who won the 6 May 2011 gubernatorial election in Imo State. He ran on the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) platform. Rochas defeated his closest rival, the incumbent governor Ikedi Ohakim, by a close margin of votes.
