OWERRI – Ogboko, the country home of Imo State governor-elect, Mr. Rochas Okorocha, has become a political pilgrimage centre of sort  since he was announced winner of the gubernatorial election last weekend.

Vanguard investigations revealed that scores of politicians and contractors have been visiting Ogboko on courtesy calls to congratulate Okorocha.

It was also gathered that a good number of those who had been milling around Ogboko are supposed chieftains of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who would not want to completely lose out in the emerging political structutre.
