Rochas Okorocha returns to Nigeria, denies going to India for treatment

Rochas Okorocha returns to Nigeria, denies going to India for treatment

Governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha whose 2 weeks travel to India on “economic matters” raised dust over the 53-year-old politician’s health, has reportedly returned to Nigeria.

The billionaire businessman and former presidential aspirant was quoted as saying to newsmen at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja on Tuesday 23 August 2016:

“Well, I was just coming from the United States of America, I went to see my grandson. I have just been blessed with another grandson, making a total of four grandchildren.

“No, I have never been sick at all, I have never been sick. I am always healthy. I am not in a hurry to go (laughs). I am very health and I have never been to any hospital. I am fine and strong. I don’t know where the rumour comes from but it is nothing to write home about,” he said.

“I have never been to hospital, I’m fine, I’m healthy and as you can see, I’m more relaxed than ever.

“I did two weeks plus, I know, they are not used to me going out. They are not used to me travelling and they saw this, I don’t blame them. But everything is okay and I’m back again to resume work.”
