Governor Rochas Okorocha has recently been one of the most talked about people in Nigeria.

Not necessarily for his achievements but because of his controversial decisions.

First, the erection of statues for South Africa President Jacob Zuma and his Liberian counterpart Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

He also stirred up another controversy after appointing his younger sister as Commissioner For Happiness.

Governor Rochas Okorocha has however denied running a ‘family’ government as claimed by some elites in the state, saying those behind that claim missed the point.

He said more than 4,000 children had gone to University through Rochas Foundation and more than 15,000 of such children were also in the various colleges of the Foundation.

Okorocha spoke when more than 5,000 members of the Rochas Mandate Movement held solidarity rally for him in Owerri, on Friday December 15, 2017.

He stated that those who never offered the people of the state leadership when they held sway but only shared the people’s resources would never come back to power in the state.

He said, “Uche Nwosu who is from Nkwerre Local Government Area and Prince Eze Madumere, from Mbaitoli LGA are all counted today as members of my family because they have grown to prominence but when they took those steps of faith, no one counted them as members of my family.”
