Governor Rochas Okorocha, Imo State governor, couldn’t control or hide his admiration towards a police officer during a recent event at the government house in Owerri, the state capital and this sure didn’t go unnoticed.
The governor decorated the beautiful police officer after being promoted to a new rank. He was joined by Brigadier General commander of 34 artillery brigade in Obinze, Brigadier Y.I Tukura. The governor was seen admiring the police officer whom he reportedly takes as his daughter, according to the sister Genevieve who shared the pictures online.
According to Genevieve who was full of praises for the governor over his philanthropic nature to the less-privileged and compassion as a father to needy, Rochas Okorocha was excited while decorating her sister because he was proud of her achievements.
Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha (born 22 September 1962) is a Nigerian multi billionaire businessman, education philanthropist and politician from Imo State, Nigeria who won the 6 May 2011 gubernatorial election in Imo State and was reelected for his second term on April 11, 2015.
His investment interests span through oil and gas, agriculture, media, education, real estate, construction, mining, hydro electric power and importation/exportation. He is the founder of Rochas Foundation, a charity comprising a number of special schools that are spread all over Nigeria that gives scholarship to the less privileged children in the Nigerian society.
In his first attempt, he ran on the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) platform and ran on the All Progressives Congress in his second shot. In both occasions, Rochas defeated his closest rival, incumbent governor Ikedi Ohakim and serving Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, by a close margin of votes and had to go for reruns.
Okorocha was a Commissioner on the Federal Character Commission and a Member of the National Constitutional Conference.
When democracy was restored in 1999, Rochas Okorocha competed in the primaries to be People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for governor of Imo State, but lost to Achike Udenwa. He moved to the All Nigeria People’s Party (ANPP), and was an unsuccessful candidate for President on the ANPP platform in 2003.
He returned to the PDP, and President Olusegun Obasanjo appointed him as Special Adviser on Inter-Party affairs.
Rochas Okorocha formed the Action Alliance (AA) party in 2005, planning to become a Presidential candidate for the AA in the 2007 elections. He again returned to the PDP, and in September 2007 indicated that he was interested in becoming PDP National Chairman.
After Governor Ikedi Ohakim decamped from the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) to the PDP in July 2009, Okorocha denied that Ohakim had taken over the PDP in the state, saying he was named as leader since he was governor, but a proper PDP congress should be held to decide on policy.
