Former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has reacted to the recent attack on the state police headquarters and the correctional centres.
Now a senator representing Imo West Senatorial District, he condemned the recent attacks in Imo State.
He made this submission in Jos and according to him, the recent attack on the police headquarters, the Correctional Centres in Imo State, and others including the unending herdsmen crisis, banditry, Boko Haram and all the abductions are all the results of poverty and injustice.
In his view, now is the time for political leaders to tell themselves the truth and address these situations in order to help men and women of the Armed Forces and the police who are currently at the battlefront with the symptoms and not the disease.
In his submission, he said;
“The recent attack on the police headquarters, the Correctional Centres in Imo State, the unending herdsmen crisis and banditry, Boko Haram, kidnappings, these are all products of poverty and injustice.
Time has come for we as political leaders to tell ourselves the truth and address this ugly situation and help our men and women of the Armed Forces and the police who are currently fighting the symptoms and not the disease. Something must be done urgently too.”
Meanwhile, Senator Okorocha has pronounced that becoming president of Nigeria in 2023 is his destiny.
He made this statement while addressing the youth who gathered at his office in Abuja and he said;
“I have contested for the office of the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria three times.
The first time, l ran when l was very young; 20 years ago, and l ran on the platform of ANPP. Later, l ran on the platform of the PDP where l came second and the last one was APC in 2014.
So, l have been in the business of running for this office. This time, it will be the fourth attempt. I am hoping to be the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Every time l started, l got stopped at the primary level, but this time around when l do run, l must win the race.”
