The governor of Imo State Owelle Rochas Okorocha, has vowed that he will become the next president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria come what may. The governor Okorocha made this statment in public on Sunday during his valedictory thanksgiving service held at the Government House Chapel in Owerri.
“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.
He said that his current political travails, particularly the seizure of his Certificate of Return as the Imo West senator-elect, were only strengthening him for the exalted presidential seat in Aso Rock.
The outgoing governor said the wishes of his political adversaries concerning him would not come to pass. He further stated below:
“those who want me to go to prison will go to prison before me.”
According to him, the elite hated him because he decided to approach the affairs of the state differently. Describing himself as “the most criticised politician” in the country, Okorocha said that all the ploy to stop him from going to the Senate will fail.
“My Senate ambition is still a battle. More than 30 people have joined the suit to fight me. All these, I will overcome. they dont 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 that 95 percent of Imo indigenes did not understand him and his style of governance.
“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.”
