Rochas Okorocha

Imo state Governor and APC presidential aspirant, Rochas Okorocha has promised to provide free education to Nigerian if elected in 2015.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Okorocha spoke in Sokoto on Saturday when he addressed the state’s delegates to the December 10th national convention of the party.

The Imo governor said,” I have done it in my schools spread across Nigeria and i will do it again if elected as President.

“Currently, there are over 12,000 indigent children in my schools with scores of them from the north,” he added.

Okorocha also said that he is aspiring to become the nation’s president not to make wealth , power or get fame.

According to him, his main pre-occupation as the President of Nigeria was to bring the desired change in the country.

He underscored the need for social justice, equity and fairness in the affairs of Nigeria.

The aspirant further said that he would work to tame the twin monsters of poverty and unemployment.

He also said that Nigerians should trust him because of  his track records and the love for sustainable peace and unity of the nation.

Okorocha also pledged to stem the tide of the insecurity, illiteracy, poverty, militancy and kidnapping, among other social ills.

“The problems of Nigeria are indeed very surmountable and i promise to do my best to improve the situation of the country,” he promised.

The acting Chairman of APC in the state, Alhaji Usman Danmadamin-Isa said that Okorocha’s visit to Sokoto was a home coming.

The chairman stated that Okorocha was electable due to his sterling qualities, promising that delegates from the state will vote for him

    This Owele guy be really doing his best to shove this presidential-aspiration-sour-meatpie down our throats sha. The other day, you promised to join M.I and carry bullion van, to show your wealth, now it’s free education, you’re promising. I think you should concentrate on the seeming ‘good works’ you’re doing in Imo. After fixing Imo for 8 years, maybe and just maybe Nigerian would be ready for your ‘show off’. For now, take my advice and seek re-election in Imo, might be your best shot at political relevance come 2015. Fashola has shown that you need to first be the change in your local terrain, before any greater national ambition. Be guided Your Excellency.
