APC Primaries: Rochas Okorocha Scores zero after bragging of northern votes
Rochas Okorocha, the former governor of Imo State, did not receive a single vote in the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential primaries.
Okorocha had promised to beat all the aspirants for the APC’s sole ticket in a speech to delegates shortly before the start of voting on Tuesday, June 7, 2022, night.
Okorocha was one of the APC’s presidential candidates who paid N100 million for nomination and expression of interest forms.
Following his arrest and detention by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, the Senator representing Imo West in the National Assembly did not have time to travel to states for consultations and familiarization with delegates.
Okorocha, who had described himself as the best candidate for the ruling party, being a lawyer, lawmaker and former chief executive of Imo State, boasted that no other aspirant can match his experience.
The former governor had said he was confident the delegates would give him their votes if not for anything, his philanthropic works.
Okocha, who believed strongly and hoped to get a large number of votes from the North, said, “Other candidates have no idea about Arewa. Let them tell us about what they have done for Arewa.”
However, Okorocha failed to poll a single vote at the contest where Tinubu emerged the party’s flag bearer.
