A former Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has attacked the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu over his 2023 Presidential ambition.
Okorocha, during an interview on Arise TV, disclosed that Tinubu was in ‘Distress’ adding that he was acting like the 2023 presidency should be given to him as ‘a reward’.
In his words; “I think it’s just natural, and that everybody should know, and I don’t know what’s behind the mind of Tinubu but I respect him a lot, but I think Tinubu is in distress because he feels that it’s a time to compensate him on the basis of the role he played in the formation of APC which some of us were part of it,” he said.
The controversial politician added that the 2023 presidency should be zoned to the South-East.
“He [Tinubu] believed that he has made people and this is the time people should allow him or make him or something. More like a reward system. But more than that, we are talking about the nation called Nigeria. We have to have a nation first before personal and individual sentiments will come into play,”
Okorocha made headlines on Tuesday afternoon after his Maitama home was beseiged by officers of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The serving senator raised alarm adding that the anti-graft commission was holding him ‘hostage’ in order to stop him from participating in the APC presidential screening exercise.
