Okorocha promises to balance ‘unbalanced equation’ as president
Former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has promised Nigerians that if he yields to the clarion call by some Nigerians to contest presidency and wins, he would ensure that the perceived political “unbalanced equation” of things in all parts of the country is “balanced.”
The senator, representing Imo West Senatorial District, disclosed this, yesterday, at his residence at Spibat, in Owerri capital city, when a South-East-based political pressure group, known as Igbo for Rochas Movement 2023, led by Jeff Nwoha, staged a call of beckoning for him to contest for the presidency in 2023.
According to the former two-term governor of Imo State, Nigeria needs to be fixed to bring it on track. He said that there was need for the country to be on the right pedestal.
“It is a wake up call to balance this unbalanced equation in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“Nigeria can only vote for person that can guarantee peace and unity of Nigeria. If I must run, it is not for the profit of the job, but for peace. If I must run, there will be free education. If there is any problem, I have the capacity to fix it,” he said.
Okorocha said that his offering of free education for the less fortunate, had made 6,000 to graduate and 25,000 undergoing training in Foundation Colleges.
