Former Imo State Governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has declared that he would outperform President Muhammadu Buhari when he becomes President.
He said this when he declared his intention to run for the presidency of Nigeria.
Okorocha made his official declaration on Monday, where he also said that Igbos do not want to leave Nigeria.
The former Imo State governor at a World Press Conference in Abuja on Monday said the position of the Igbos runs contrary to the agitation championed by the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB).
Emphasising further, Okorocha said the Igbos are the only people who have businesses across the different geopolitical zones of Nigeria.
He argued that he is not not-too-young-to-run neither is he too old to run.
On the state of Nigeria, Okorocha said he is not satisfied with the country’s situation, adding that he hopes to do better than Buhari if given a chance.
“My heart bleeds because of that boy in Maiduguri or Katsina that cannot go to school. I’m not satisfied when poverty becomes the order of the day. Many countries have tagged us as the poverty capital of the world; I do not agree,” he said.
“The truth is that we are a great nation, and time will come when it will be made manifest. To the youths, If I become your President, I will hand it over to the next generation. I’m not not-too-young-to-run and not too old to run; I’m only 57.
“We have 14 million out-of-school children. I will declare free education; it is something I have done.
“Buhari has done well, but he will never wish to be the best. I will beat Buhari’s record a billion times,” he said.
