Rochas Okorocha, Imo state governor, has vowed that the seizure of his Certificate of Return as the senator-elect of the Imo West senatorial district, is only getting him prepared for his utmost political dream which is to become the president of Nigeria.
Governor Okorocha who will be exiting office come Wednesday May 29th, said this when he spoke during his valedictory thanksgiving service held at the Government House Chapel in Owerri. The governor who accused the elite class of ganging up against him, said that those who want me to go to prison will go to prison before me.
“I tell you, I am the most criticised 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. Also, those who think they will put me in prison will go to prison before 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.” he said
According to Governor Okorocha, most people do not understand fully his style of governance.
“Only a few of them later realised that I meant well for the state. I governed the state with passion. I broke protocols and bent the laws, but I never broke laws. 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.” he said
