Igbo presidency doesn’t exist – Okorocha

Imo West Senator, Rochas Okorocha, has cautioned his kinsmen against the misconception of the term ‘Igbo presidency.’

Mr Okorocha, while addressing journalists after being sworn in as Senator on Thursday, said such an agenda could not have existed as it was impossible to hand over power to a region without due process.

The former governor said he is more concerned about having a president that will better the lot of Nigerians, irrespective of ethnic affiliation.

“Power is not given, power is taken,” he said. “The South East cannot just fold their arms and expect power to be given to them just because you want power. Power does not go with sentiment some of the times, it’s on issues on ground.

“Democracy is about the people and the South East alone cannot make themselves president. So you cannot be talking about Igbo presidency, it doesn’t exist. We may be talking about Nigeria’s president of Igbo extraction but that depends on what other geopolitical zones think about the issue.

“For me, what is important is let power be given to somebody who has something upstairs who can put food on the table of common man, irrespective of religion or where you come from.”

He noted that the South East needs to mend fences across the country in other to remain relevant politically.
