Governor Rochas Okorocha VS Willie Obiano – Updates
Below are what people said about the Online Quarrel Between the Governor of Imo State “Rochas Okorocha” & The Governor of Anambra State “Willie Obiano”
“Obiano, no doubt, has taken Anambra State several kilometres backward, while in Imo, Okorocha has raised the bar of leadership or governance” – Ezepeace Eze
“Comparing me with the Governor of Anambra state, Willie Obiano, is like comparing Messi of Barcelona FC of Spain with the left wing player of Mbieri secondary school in the Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State”
Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, January 31, 2017.
I laugh again! Okoro easy o!
“While describing Governor Obiano as an analogue governor unfit to rule a state like Anambra with its stirring political history, Okorocha pointed to his strides in business, economy and politics which put him head and shoulder above Obiano.” – Ezepeace Eze
Before you compare Governor Willie Obiano with Rochas Okorocha, ask yourself, what was their respective occupations before Venturing into politics.
Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State was a Banker with First Bank Nigeria, and later joined the services of Chevron Oil Nigeria Plc as accountant and rose to the position of Chief Internal Auditor.
In 1989, he was one of the auditors that audited Texaco Refinery in Rotterdam, Netherlands. In 1991, he joined the Fidelity Bank as Deputy Manager and head of Audit unit and rose to the position of Executive Director on October 2003.
Please can someone come here and tell me Rochas Okorocha’s occupation before joining politics? I mean what he studied in school.
You see talk is cheap, in terms of governance, Willie Obiano is far better than Rochas Okorocha, being a “philanthropist” doesn’t make you a good administrator.
Anambra State is not an oil producing state and as such does not receive 13% derivation as Imo state does, yet Anambra State is not owing any worker nor pensioners, can you say that in the case of Imo state?
Like the SA on Media to governor Obiano said,Okorocha is an example of what a leader should not be, there is no bases for comparison between the two governor’s.

My Gov my Gov, u re a good leader but my brother Obiano is better!
Share with the hash tag. No need giving journalists a stressful job where we can do the job here and give u the result. – Elendu Otis E
The purported Igbo presidency by 2019, to me is not at sight yet because our so called Governors are not at peace with each other.
If what is published in the dailies of the verbal attack between Governor Rochas and his Anambra counterpart Willy Obiano as regards tbeir various achievements against each other.
They can never come together to fight the common political front of presidency for our people.The elders of the Igbos through Ohaneze ndi Igbo should call them to order .
If they are incompatible, our quest for a presidential slot will linger for many years to come. – Onwujurum Clifford
There is no comparison between standard and substandard. You can only use the two words when discussing words and opposites. As far as am concerned, Obiano represents standard in every little thing He has done in Anambra state.
I can not come and kill myself because I want to defend the defenceless. Mba nu! – Aic Akwarandu
Obiano is a fool and crook – Okorocha
The war between Govs. Willie Obiano and Rochas Okorocha has become intensified with Okorocha calling Obiano a fool. Okorocah spoke through one of his on-line aides, Mr. Abel Ibe. It will be recalled that Obiano said that Okorocha has not provided inspirational leadership to be taken seriously by anybody.
His full release reads:
“We have followed the politics of Anambra State. We all are aware how Obi bled himself to impose Gov. Willie Obiano on the people of Anambra State against all opposition. Even Chief Victor Umeh opposed that and had to be paid close to 1 Billion Naira to accept.
Even before he was sworn in, Obiano had already started attacking Mr. Peter Obi.
We see daily how his aides and those of Victor Umeh attack Obi. Their latest falsehood was the claim that Obi said he would remove President Buhari and that he donated 25 hectares of land to a religious group. This is the fruit Obi is reaping for making him Governor.
Not used to fighting dirty, Obi kept his cool. Even his fighter, Mr. Valentine Obienyem only put up sporadic defenses, we later understood that Obi directed him not to attack Obiano.
Now election is approaching, Obiano, a fool thinking himself wise, is making moves to deceive Obi through false repentance.
In his folly, he thinks everybody is Obi. After Gov. Rochas Okorocha made a harmless statement about Governors of the South East joining the APC, almost all the Governors reacted. But it was only Obiano that spoke like a motor park tout.
Where can you compare Obiano and Rochas to warrant Obiano attacking Rochas? If not for being Governor, will Obiano ordinarily sit in meeting with Okorocha? We blame Obi for foisting a man who did not have kobo on the people of Anambra State. Today they tell us he was a wealthy man before he became Governor, yet he could not pay his ticket from the USA to Nigeria.
How can you compare the two in terms of governance? In spite meeting empty treasury and debt when he became Governor, Okorocha is performing above average. Obiano is the only Governor in Nigeria that met no debt and inherited over 100 Billion Naira from Obi and yet under him Anambra State is now owing over 60 Billion Naira. Is street light he is mounting a justification for over 100 Billion he inherited and over 60 Billion Naira he has borrowed?
In Imo, Rochas takes less than 250 Million as security vote, but Obiano takes 1.2 Billion and his wife 2.5 Million monthly. Who between the two is lacking in leadership?
Rochas has less than 100 aides, while Obiano has over 600, between the two, who is lacking in leadership?
Rochas has signed less than 20 MoUs and they are being implemented, while Obiano has signed over 100 out of which not more than 3 are being implemented, who is lacking in leadership?
Morally, have you heard Rochas messing up with women, he is happily and responsibly married, but we hear Obiano dancing around with women. What are they hiding about the Miss ABS, Chidimma? How many girls that attended to him in hotels where he stayed before being sworn in did he make aides? How many people did his wife slap?
How many children does he have outside marriage? We heard that his latest appointee, Chinwe Iwuchukwu who worked with him in Fidelity Bank bore him a child? While Rochas is a moral example, Obiano is a moral misfit.
Today, it was due to Gov. Willie Obiano that South-East Governors are not meeting. This is a revelation for another day.
How many people or relations of Rochas have you heard are among political appointees? Under Obiano, over 200 of his over 600 appointees are from his town. All his brothers and sisters are either SA or SSA. Among the two who has inspired leadership?
When other Governors are talking, Obiano should not even talk. He is not happy because after approaching Sen. Chris Ngige and Rochas Okorocha to be allowed to enter APC and get automatic ticket, they told him it was not possible, since it will bring confusion in Anambra State among other older members of the party, he has been attacking Okorocha.
Meanwhile the same man secretly met the SGF and offered to donate 5 Billion Naira of Anambra money and be allowed to enter the APC .
The man talking about inspiration in leadership cannot boast of any completed project in 3 years.
It is only in Anambra that a leader is building three bridges to a place that has a population of less than 5,000 because it passed through his town. It is only in Anambra that a man can award three roads to the airport that is yet to be built and call all these inspirational leadership.
The moment Obiano engaged in EXPO during Governorship debate in spite of warnings by the organizers that we know Anambra State has entered the hands of a crook. See what he is doing in the State. He goes about presenting Obi’s projects to newspaper houses and bribing them to be named their man of the year. We heard he is claiming to have done Head bridge road and other critical roads long completed before he became Governor.
Is this inspirational leadership.
We shall stop here for now and will do thorough comparison in due time. “
