The governor said the governorship position of the state from 2019, are not meant for people who are above 50 years age bracket.
He said “Mike Ahamba, SAN, did not attack me today. This is unlike him, it maybe because he wants to be governor in 2019, but let me advise him not to contest because nobody above 50 will be governor in Imo again”.
He said politicians above 50 years in the state had at one time or the other brought hardship on the people.
He said people below the age bracket who have the burning and genuine desires to make the state progress should be given the chance.
