Politics Why I’m Opting Out of Elective Office in 2015 –Imoke -The Sun



Cross River State Governor, Senator Liyel Imoke on Thursday offered explanatons on his decision not to seek any elective office in 2015.

Speaking at a public lecture organised by Destiny Group to mark his 53rd birthday at the Cultural Centre, Calabar, Imoke said only leaders who feel insecure and looking for where to hide after leaving office would think of the next elective office while they are still in their current position.

“As the end of my term as governor continues to count, I look forward to it with joy and satisfaction. I will leave with peace and utmost satisfaction. A lot of people keep asking me, ‘Oga, are you not going to contest for an election when you leave as governor?’ I tell them that I will leave office with so much peace and satisfaction that I will not contemplate running for another office. It is only those who are insecure and are looking for where to hide that plot for the next office even when they are yet to serve out their current term, ” he stated.
