On November 22, 2017 121 Comments

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State says there is no better man for the Presidency than President Muhammadu Buhari.

Okorocha said this while addressing leaders of the ‘Democratic Youths Congress for Buhari 2019,” who were on a courtesy visit to him at the Government House, Owerri on Tuesday.

He urged every Nigerian to support President Buhari for second term, adding that all but two Governors in the country, regardless of party affiliation, were in support of a second term for the President.

“President Buhari is the best for the country at the moment and that there could not have been a better option now.

“Now God has chosen him to be the president of Nigeria and some of us are witnesses that Buhari was and is still the best for Nigeria at this material time,” he said.

Okorocha also said that Nigeria’s quick exit from economic recession was a testament to Buhari’s tenacity, adding that he had shelved his ambition in preference to support Buhari.

While appealing to others to extend the same level of support, he noted Buhari’s second term would bring about enhanced unity and peace of Nigeria.

“Supporting Buhari for a second tenure will bring about the new Nigeria we are talking about. This will put Nigeria first and the unity we are looking for will be guaranteed under this administration.

“Our nation is going through a challenging moment and we will require a man of his calibre to see us through this period.

“People should not use the Anambra election result to judge the support for Buhari as it does not reflect the support.

“Even the government and people of Anambra support President Buhari, what happened was that an internal disagreement among the leaders in APC in Anambra cost us the election.”

Earlier, the National Chairman of the group, Mr Kassim Kassim, said the group came to appeal to Okorocha to shelve his ambition of running for the office of the president of the country.

He noted that although Okorocha was well qualified to run, his support was needed to enable Buhari to complete his “good works for the nation.”

“With your track records, we would have gladly chosen you to run for 2019, but we have all endorsed Buhari and accepted that you lead us all the way in the support.

“We are begging and pleading that you lead all the governors of APC to support Buhari for what he has done and what he stands for in Nigeria.

“With you on our side, victory is assured” Kassim said.

    Its time IPOB have to organize themselves rebel against those useless governor like Okoroawusa Oji uzo kalu and co. Because Nnamdi Kanu refused to visit him when he came out of buhari’s prison, Then he oji uzo Kalu was furious and invited operation python dance against the people of Afaraukwu. He will be exposed soon.

    Okorocha before 2015 Nigeria foreign debt was 12,4 billion dollars,but today is now 19,7 billion dollars,plus 5,5 billion dollars just approved by the national assembly,total 25,2 billion dollars, if a president that has borrowed almost 13 billion dollars with nothing to show for in 2yrs,is your best,ts shows there is big problem around you,,

    Most times It baffles me the kind of home this Okorocha comes from,his brought up,educational back ground,his wealth and how he managed to acquire his fame.He doesn’t talk like someone who sucks his mother’s breast well.Such person needs not heard from or talk in the society when people talk.Many sucks breast for peace,knowledge and developmental purposes while his is confusion and irrelevant things

    If u like praise Buhari to high heaven like a sycophant thinking such act wl make get d president. U wl soon find out that u are chasing shadow & that President wl elude u. That is d problem wt d South Eastern governors & that of their lilly-livered approaches in handling issues affecting their people due to unwarranted fear & slavish/subservient disposition to Hausa-Fulani oligarchy & to d caliphate. How can these selfish people protect & advance d interest of their people. That is why more than 90% of our people have trust in him & are ever ready to listen & obey Nnamdi KANU b/c he has bn tried, tested & found to be fearless, outspoken, courageous, & incorruptible. These so cld governors have betrayed their people & has failed to understand d fact that majority of their has lost confidence in Nigerian federation & now vociferously clamouring for their freedom & independence wt their kiths & kins in d Biafran coast. They must listen to their people & work in tandem wt their wishes & aspirations or honourably resign from their stations to avoid revolutionary anger of d people who are really angry & can take d bull by d horn. A stitch in time saves nine.
