I’m running for Senate to remain relevant until 2023 – Okorocha

Rochas Okorocha

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has said that he is contesting the Imo West federal constituency seat to remain politically relevant until the next general elections in 2023.

Mr Okorocha also said that he was under attack from the leadership of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) because they fear he would push for Igbo presidency in 2023.

“I want to go to Senate to remain politically relevant until 2023 and also to represent Ndigbo and the Nigerian masses.

“There is more to the noise you are hearing about the governorship election in Imo, it is not about Uche Nwosu, it is about a plot to stop Okorocha by all means, otherwise why will Adams Oshiomhole and Rotimi Amaechi be interested in who governs Imo.

“The calculation is that if Uche Nwosu becomes governor and I go to Senate, I will be a strong force by 2023. The most annoying fact is that they are using our people to pursue that agenda.

“The saying that there was no victor and no vanquished after the civil war is just a mere way to create unity for the country, otherwise the Igbo were the vanquished, ever since the Igbo has fared like the defeated but the most painful aspect is that Ndigbo are about to lose again,” he said.
