There are facts that a banker of the Zenith bank family incidentally from Mbaise (name withheld) is likely to succeed Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State in 2019.
Nigeria Moment investigations revealed that the decision of the governor to chose the Mbaise born financial management expert was informed by the options preferred on him by the bank in order to give him a safe landing in the numerous allegation against him based on mismanagement of the state funds which the bank is alleged to be involved.


The source also furthered that Zenith bank is the state bank and any transactions without the backing of the bank may not materialized, hence it described the bank as Imo State guarantor. The story was suspected to have been confirmed by the press release signed by the CPS to the governor and made available to newsmen in Owerri which stated that on Saturday, January 6, 2018, Political Leaders, frontline traditional rulers, Church Leaders and Stakeholders from the three local governments of Aboh, Ezinihittee and Ahiazu that make up Mbaise met with the governor of the State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha at his home-town Ogboko in Ideato South Local Government Area.
At the meeting, the governor advised Mbaise people to change their style of politics which is too clannish both in practice and in words to enable them attract the support of other parts of the state to produce the governor of the state one day. The governor stated that before now, the Political Leaders in Mbaise had enthroned a very disturbing political development or practice that portrayed the people of the area as clannish which has unfortunately alienated them from most of the other areas in the state. He praised Mbaise people for being industrious, intelligent, resourceful, united and enterprising, and that they have been due to produce the governor of the state long before now but regretted that Mbaise people alone cannot produce a governor without the rest of Imo people.
The governor expressed optimism that the new emerging Political Leaders in Mbaise would correct the mistakes of the Political Leaders of the old order by playing group politics instead of clannish politics.
The governor also reiterated his love for Mbaise people and remarked that there was nothing he did in other parts of the state that he didn't do in Mbiase. And stated that the Resin Paint Industry which he repurchased and handed over to a foreign company SkyRun that has begun production is in Mbaise, and the University of Agriculture and Vertinary Medicine vis-à-vis other numerous projects of the government located in Mbaise.
According to the governor, with politicians of like-minds now waxing stronger in the area, Mbaise people can now work with other people in the state to produce a governor very soon. The leader of the delegation and member representing Ahiazu and Ezinihittee Mbaise Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Nnanna Igbokwe assured the governor that they have decided to be on the same page with him for the overall good of Mbaise people since he has shown that he is a governor with large heart. Hon. Igbokwe who is also the leader of the South-East caucus of APC members in the House of Representatives told the governor that what some key Political Leaders of Mbaise extraction could not do for their people, he has done it for them and remarked that henceforth, the governor would begin to see broad-based politics by Mbaise people.
The traditional rulers from Mbaise who were at the meeting were led by the chairman of the Mbaise Council of Ndi-Eze, HRH Eze Leo Nwokocha and Deputy Chairman of the State Council of Traditional Rulers for Owerri zone HRM Eze Chidume Okoro, while the Political Leaders at the meeting were led by a known political figure in the country Nze Patrick Onuoha, and the State Chairman of APC, Chief Hillary Ekeh.
