Photos From Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha's 55th Birthday Celebration

Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha celebrated his 55th birthday today in style in Owerri, the capital city of Imo State, as he hosted many of his political counterparts in the colorful birthday ceremony.

Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha is a Nigerian multi-billionaire businessman, education philanthropist and politician from Imo State, Nigeria who won the 6 May 2011 gubernatorial election in Imo State and was reelected for his second term on April 11, 2015. 

He is the founder of Rochas Foundation, a charity comprising a number of special schools that are spread all over Nigeria that gives scholarship to the less privileged children in the Nigerian society. In his first attempt, he ran on the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) platform and ran on the All Progressives Congress in his second shot. 

In both occasions, Rochas defeated his closest rival, incumbent governor Ikedi Ohakim and serving Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, by a close margin of votes and had to go for reruns.
