Okorocha Vows to Become Nigeria President
The outgoing Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has vowed that he would become the president of Nigeria come what may.
Okorocha made the assertion to the public on Sunday during his valedictory thanksgiving service which held at the Government House Chapel in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
Addressing the congregation, he said his present political upheaval, most especially his Certificate of Return as the Imo West senator-elect were only backing him to get to the presidential seat in Aso Rock.
He said the wishes of his political enemies across the country would not come to reality, while noting that those who want him to go to prison will go there before him.
He added that Nigerian elites hate him with “cruelty” because of his unique approach to the affairs of the state.
“I tell you, I am the most criticized person in Nigeria today. I don’t know why the entire elite hate me with cruelty. My Senate ambition is still a battle.
“More than 30 people have joined the suit to fight me. All these, I will overcome. They are only preparing me for the glory ahead.”
“Mark it, I will be president of Nigeria. I said this on this altar so that the kingdom of God will rise against those fighting to stop me.
“They don’t want me to be at the National Assembly, but I will be there. I know I am the last man standing, but I will not give up.
“When I took over the office eight years ago, I wasn’t unmindful that a lot of people will misunderstand me and try to distract me.
“But today, I have left the state better than I met it. I am the architect of the new Imo.
“I am a satisfied governor,” Okorocha stated.
