2019: ‘I’ve Not Dropped My Ambition To Become President’ – Okorocha
Ahead of the 2019 Presidential election, Imo State Governor, Rochas Anayo Okorocha, has declared interest to contest the presidential seat.
In an exclusive interview with Sunday Sun, Okorocha stated that he hasn’t dropped his presidential ambition but “only respecting the gentleman called President Muhammadu Buhari who I think has what it takes to change leadership in this country.”
According to him, should President Buhari to declare to run in 2019, he has no choice but to support him.
His words: “I have so many windows open in 2019 as I wait for Mr. President to make his declaration, I want to be politically relevant and I have made the decision never to watch my country sink.
“We have a faulty foundation and I see President Buhari as that man who can build the foundation that we need. But I don’t see him as someone who will build this nation with a fantastic finishing with nice furniture. He’s just going to build a solid foundation upon which success and prosperity for the land shall be accomplished. And that’s where people like me would come in.”
