Okorocha said this while addressing journalists in Owerri.
The governor, however, said he has no intentions to challenge President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 elections.
According to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, Okorocha said, “Governor does not fit me. What fits me is president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I will not contest against Buhari.”
The statement read, “Again, we have also decided not to be reacting to Chief Ihedioha’s constant media attacks on Governor Okorocha, because we have discovered that it gives outsiders the erroneous impression that they are still relevant in Imo politics, when in actual fact, they have all gone into political oblivion.
“The fact is that Chief Ihedioha sustained his growth in politics from 2003 to 2015 through name-dropping and that ugly development ended in 2015.
“When he took the ticket of the PDP for the 2015 gubernatorial election, everybody knew that the party had denied itself the needed impact it would have made in that election”.
