Former Imo State Governor, Dr Ikedi Ohakim who is very active on social media shared the following using his personal Facebook wall:

"I wish to address some issues my dear brothers and sisters. Please don't feel bad if I decline giving out my phone number to everybody that asks for it. As much as I would love to hear from everybody, I, like every human being deserve some level of privacy. When I came online initially, I gave out my phone number to some people who had requested for it and sometimes you'll see somebody calling me as early as 4am when I'm still in bed with my wife. Even through the Facebook messenger application I get calls as early as 4am. Sometimes it would be a female caller, a friend on Facebook and how do you want to start explaining that all the times my dear brothers and sisters? If you scold the person the next thing you'll see is a post labelling Ohakim as arrogant and bad. I want to hear from everybody. I love to hear how I wronged you so that I can apologize and find a way to make things better. I love to hear your thanks and encouragement over the things you believe I did well. I want to hear your ideas for the good of our dear state. I want to share in your joy and in your pain as much as I can but we can do that through the Facebook messenger application. I cannot respond to everybody at once please do bear with me, I'm only human and I'm doing my very best. I also want to correct an impression that came to my attention last week when I was home. Some young men visited me but I was meeting with other people who I had already made arrangements to meet with and the young men were annoyed that they were asked to wait long and left my house. It was just brought to my attention by some friends a post the leader of the group made against me afterwards and without giving specifics as to what happened he tried to paint me very badly. My dear brothers and sisters, whenever I am home I get visits from a lot of people. From the time I wake up in the morning till sometimes as late as 1am I am hosting people. I make arrangements with a lot of people to meet with them when I'm home even here on Facebook and I try my best but I am only human and cannot meet everybody sometimes and you'll have to have patience sometimes when you come to see me because there are always people there to see me and most of them made arrangements to meet with me before you. In my shoes you might not do better so please try to understand with me. What matters most isn't meeting with me. What matters most is finding ways to make life better for our people. If you have great ideas send them to me in my inbox and we will discuss and come up with ways to make life better for our people. I hope you are having a great day. God bless you"
