 Senator Rochas Okorocha declares interest in 2023 presidential election

Senator representing Imo West Senatorial district, Rochas Okorocha has hinted on contesting in the 2023 presidential election. 


The Ex-Governor of Imo State who spoke as he received a group led by Jeff Nwaoha who call themselves “Igbos for Rochas 2023 President” and has members comprising from the five states in the South East, reiterated his now popular statement that “it is time for the Igbos to produce the next president of Nigeria.”
 
He said; 

“I am happy because you find me worthy. I am happy because you have made huge sacrifices driving through the long distance to meet with me on Nigeria’s presidency. I have read in between lines of your submission, that you want a Nigerian presidency of Igbo extraction and you have found me worthy for this position. I feel honoured and I am happy.”


“Let me salute you in the manner which you have conducted yourself in a more peaceful approach and this is commendable.


“It is true that Igbo are highly misunderstood but allow me to say that Igbo are the most peaceful Nigerians and wherever you find them they are building bridges of peace and economic development. The Igbos are the only people that have invested more outside than what they had invested in their own land.


“Igbo people alone cannot make the president of Nigeria. We need the support of other regions of this country to produce the president of Nigeria. We need the Hausa, Yoruba and other regions to be able to produce the presidency.


“For me, I have run for this office of the presidency using different political parties and up to three times now, I have run for the office of the presidency under the ANPP, and the second time under PDP, the third time in APC, and now If I must run it is for the unity of Nigeria.

 If I must run, it must be for the empowerment of the youths of Nigeria, and if I must run for the presidency, it will be to make this nation compete with other greater nations of the world economically.”

Rochas Okorocha stated that all other regions have produced a president asides the South-East, and that 2023 was Igbo’s opportunity to produce theirs.
