I was offered $2m To Return Okorocha’s in-law as guber candidate–Gulak

The Chairman of the All Progressives  Congress, APC, gubernatorial committee in Imo State, Mr. Ahmed Gulak, has opened up on what transpired and how Governor Rochas Okorocha, offered him $2m and a ride in his private jet to return his in-law, Uche Nwosu as the gubernatorial candidate.

Gulak, who opened up for the first time after the controversial APC gubernatorial primary says, ” I was offered a private jet to take me to Imo state but I refused because I didn’t want to be compromised. I refused the private jet and even the tempting offer made to me, very tempting, we are talking about two million dollars here, which I refused.

“Although, I tried to persuade them that I was going to do what is needful, free and fair primaries. Every stakeholder must be involved. Immediately we landed at the airport, that was where the problem started.

“They wanted to kidnap every member and only God knows where they wanted to take us to, which I refused. And to say the least, I pity the Imo people but they have to take their destiny in their own hands and elect who they feel will represent them well.

“I am not from Imo state but I am a Nigerian. There is equality and there is equity. Some of our governors, I am sorry to say this, they take state resources as their personal resources and we know that power is transient. After four or eight years you are out of power and the system will get you. But having said that, I am happy that the party has vindicated me and I know it is the best decision for the people of Imo state”.
