How Did Rochas Okorocha Become So Rich?! by swaggerific: 8:40pm On Aug 05, 2012
This guy ran for governor in 1999 and then decided to run for the presidency and failed again after spending so much money in 2003. He then tried again in 2007 and failed. And now he finally became a very good governor...God bless him. He is a great philanthropist and has been giving free education to kids for a while and all I hear is how rich this guy is and not how he worked his way up the money ladder. Did he invest in the stock market? How is this guy this wealthy? I respect his hustle to the last, I like seeing rich people flaunt their hard earned wealth but I just want to know how Rochas got this wealthy

I Love And Respect Wealthy People But How Did Rochas Okorocha Become This Rich?!

The guy has asked a legitimate and good question. Actually is something - won't mind knowing also. We are here on this forum to learn from each other; so anyone that knows should please share.

Only lazy and stu.pid people believe in the existence ritual money. Do you people really believe that you can kill a human being and chant some gibberish and money wud appear? Too much nollywood films makes your oily brain more oily. This imbecility at its best. I was surprised when I discovered that some Nigerians don't actually say this just to 'diss Igbo', but are serious. Makes me wonder about the intelligence of my so called "fellow country people"

My brother, its not laziness that's doing me, its just curiosity. Im sure other people want to know too. People know how most politicians made their money but his case is different. If he invested in the stock market and hit millions or billions of dollars then thats great.

Probably from the goverment coffers. I don't know. That he is doing a thing or two for his state does not mean that he is not stashing money away too. After all, Ibori did a thing or two for Delta State and then used the rest of the money to buy the choicest properties around the world.

. Rememba it's curiosity that killed the cat. Rochas has neva bn a subject of financial controversy as far as those that matter re concerned. This implies that he hasn't stepped on any toes n is playing the game according to whateva rules that governs money matters in Naija. If u insist on knowin his source of wealth,then make it ur prayer point.

@OP - rochas made his first major breakthrough from a contract in 1999 or 2000 (I'm not too sure of the year now). The FG gave him a contract to supply prado jeeps to every police command in every local goverment area in the country. For those old enough to remember the police prado jeeps with "Algon" printed on the side. the man made a killing and I guess blew from there.

My guy, what is your problem? Rochas is a public figure; a governor for that matter. Why can't some ask "Where or how did this guy make his money". Or are you his son?

The question might even possibly be borne of admiration and desire to imitate his strategy and not necessarily to castigate him.

You're one of the few who understands English and who also can answer questions clearly. the rest are just the normal Nigerian crackheads using question to answer question instead of just keeping quite.

Legitimate question which the response is likely going to help up and coming Nigerians who wish to make it legitimately too (in case Rocha made it that way)

How Did Rochas Okorocha Become This Rich?!

You should do your private investigation, then come back here to tell us. By throwing an open ended question in a rowdy public forum, you are inviting confusions in responses




People keeps ranting that he stole the country blind to get rich. Not a single person has provided evidence to back up his assertion. That's why I remarked that OP should do his homework first. You are inviting confusion by throwing an open-ended question to the public forum. The OP should atleast give us the estimate of Rochas wealth, complete with some of his assets. Going by the OP's assertion, we are not even sure if Rochas is rich.
The question should be:

1. Is Rochas rich? After tackling this question, we move over to the next question.

2. How rich is Rochas? Before we delve into the question of. . .

3. How Rochas acquired his wealth?

As most of you can notice from my past posts, I'm one of Rochas fervent critics here for his loquaciousness and poor performance. But I won't be a party to assailing Rochas image without any evidence. OP did a poor job. He reduced his thread to beer palour gist, thereby exposing an opening for critics to launch a counterattack on him that he has a personal agenda to assassinate Rochas character. We should learn to be more professional whenever we approach a topic like this.
