What more except, dramatic, can be said of Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, who said 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 highest political dream – to become the president of Nigeria.
Governor Okorocha who will be leaving the Imo state Governor’s office on Wednesday May 29th, said this during his speech at his valedictory thanksgiving service which held at the Government House Chapel in Owerri. Soon to be former-governor Rochas accused the elite class in Nigerian of teaming up against him. He said that those who want him to go to prison will go to prison before him, adding that they’re only preparing him for his dream position.
“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. 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.”
The aspiring president reveal that he bent the law during his governorship rule, but didn’t break the law.
Only a few of them later realized 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.” Rochas said.
