The outgoing Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha who formally vacated the State Government House on Tuesday, while addressing his supporters in Owerri indirectly called off the fight he declared before the 2019 Gubernatorial election in the State.
In the video, Imo state Rochas Okorocha who once boasted that there were no Politicians in the State, can be heard pleading that nobody should fight him as he leaves office because he is a peaceful person.
“I am a lover of peace. As I walk out of this government house today, let nobody fight me and I will not fight nobody”

In the speech, he said;
“I have not broken the law, I only bend to achieve results. I do things the other way and I get results. I remember in 2011 when darkness ravaged and people cannot go out for fear of being kidnapped but today Imo is a secured state.
“So I can say that I came, I saw and I conquered. I am not here to make speeches on my achievements. I encourage you to support the new government in power.
“The office of the governor is a seal covering people, it is like a mask covering me and if you remove that mask you will see the real Rochas that is bigger than the governor. Let those that are fighting stop as I leave the Government House today.”
The governor was later escorted to his private residence in Owerri, the state capital.
