The head is still sore but, he just needs to rest his head.
His Excellency genuinely appreciates the prayers and concerns of all Nigerians and Imolites. He says that he would be back to the Country soon to continue his work.”– Offor said.

We commend the Honorable Commissioner for keeping everyone informed and updated on the Governor’s health. If all Media spokespersons for our elected leaders can do same, there won’t be any room for false speculations in the press.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Gov. Okorocha at this time.
We wish him a speedy recovery.
