Senator Ifeanyi Araraume has said that his political future is only in the hands of God, not Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state.

Ararume, in a statement signed by Ikechukwu Ogbenna, his media aide, said he was more grounded in politics than Okorocha actually is, adding that he was relying on God and the people to make his dreams come true.
