Muhammadu Buhari Has a New Nickname!… “Okechukwu”



Buhari 2015 BN 8Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has a great amount of admiration for APC presidential aspirant, Muhammadu Buhari.

Just last week, Okorocha said Buhari is Nigeria’s Nelson Mandela. This week, the governor has given him a new nickname, “Okechukwu,” which reportedly means “God’s portion.”

According to Premium Times, Buhari was given the nickname when he traveled to Imo State on Monday to campaign at the Dan Anyiam stadium in Owerri.

Stating that Buhari was the chosen one to lead Nigeria, Okorocha also stated, “May the soul of PDP rest in peace. May they never rise again.”

    Okechukwu indeed, at the eleventh hour? Come on, we are smarter than this. So after election what nickname will her revert to? He was head of state and did not answer an Igbo nickname, whilst in PTF he did not. I doubt if this name would stick.

      You hit the nail on the head! Too many people react (raving and ranting) to every minor thing politicians say. By the time wey something important comes up, they are all spent and/or not attentive.

      And who should they sell their soul to? Jonathan? Listen to yourself. I think the Igbos are the most confused set of Nigerians as far as politics in this country is concerned. And don’t bother venting on tribe cos am Igbo. What exactly are your sentiments about Buhari? Religion, ethnicity? If those are, then you lack objectivity. Is Jonathan an Igbo man? How does the presidency of an Ijaw man represent you. You people are vehemently grandstanding for GEJ but would sabotage your own at every given opportunity. How many Igbo Senate Presidents have we had since 1999? How many of them completed their tenure? Then go check how long David Mark has been there. When matters come to a head, the Ijaw man will tell you he’s not Igbo, If you don’t agree, then read your history on the civil war. Having said that, Igbos, our over-sabi sense is actually resulting to no sense at all. If you are voting Jonathan, please do so based on issues that will move this country forward, not on sentiments. And on this basis, i have decided to vote anyone i feel would chart the course of today’s Nigeria in a way that will affect future generations positively, irrespective of where he/she comes from. Tribal and ethnic sentiments are ruining this country by the day. I could vote PDP, APC, Labour Party or Kowa, all i know is that whoever i vote represents Nigeria to me, not region, ethnic or religious bias.

    Even Buhari can not comfortably bear that name after the atrocities done to ndigbo.
    Buhari has to first apologize to ndigbo and indeed all Nigerians for the killings he incited.
    Arrogance has no place in democracy.

    Okechukwu… Could mean God’s rat. If it means God’s portion that’s even better. God’s portion was given to you years back and you took his blessings for granted. So oops, okechukwu na ndu gi ebe gbasalu obodo anyi bu Nigeria aga go. Simples

    Amosu or Ekwensu would have been much better considering his first tenure. Nonsense…

    While everyone was so on about Okechukwu name, no one saw the ending part of “PDP resting in peace”. This is sure not a hate speech, neither is it a violent inciting speech….Alas, i know a certain woman that if she had said that, the whole media houses and every Nigerian will be agog with banters and name calling on how she is disgraceful…Isoraite, this too shall pass away.

    I don’t trust Buhari, not saying Goodluck will bring us a bout of good luck if re-elected but, don’t trust Buhari, rather one who rants uncontrollably and you know wetin dey him mind than one that eerily reserves his comment and just sits there in his nook of uncanny silence–How can a presidential candidate not attend a debate staged for other prospective presidential candidates!!! Fishy!
    Please I hope people vote and vote strategically. One thing everyone should bare in mind is that most politicians are corrupt (as in they all have itchy palms) BUT would you rather vote someone that steals a dime or someone that you don’t know what their guilty pleasure is…Not to insinuate anything sha but we rather have the mumu wey we know than the intellectual wey we no know, even if that intellectual was president 50 years ago–Times have changed and so has the demography and socio-political terrain of Nigeria. We cannot afford to have unpleasant surprises. biko nu. This is a life or death palaver. Please, I still want to be able to visit home over the summer holiday lol

    It’s not a new nickname. They’ve been calling him that as far back as January, if not even earlier.

    Okechukwu oooooo, WELCOME TO NDIGBO! ANAMBRA WELCOMES YOU, NNEWI WELCOMES YOU! Might i also add Oluwaseyi to the mix? It means “God did this”……… I think….

    Regardless of all the ethnic names, YOU ARE BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVOURED! AMEN!

    All we have to do is pray for Nigeria that we will not go back to hw we started as a wretched country. I believe that God will not allow his people to suffer and will but his own person in place to move Nigeria forward. And please stop calling Okechukwu too much, it is some people’s surname so it is very precious and should be given to people that deserve the name.
