Senator Rochas

Owelle Rochas Okorocha, the Imo state governor, has turned a laughing stock among his people.

Okorocha was greeted with scorn and unprintable words, following a statement he made.

According to the governor, he stands the best chance of becoming the first Igbo president Nigeria will ever have. Okorocha who is a chieftain in the ruling APC, said this when he spoke to newsmen at the state government house in Owerri, the state capital on Friday,  August 9th.

”I stand a better chance of making the Presidency in 2023 but my greatest challenge will come from the Igbo. It is our character. It will be a foolish thing to imagine that the Igbo will support me” he said

Okorocha went on to say that the Igbo political class has the pull-him-down syndrome where they never support or believe in anyone from their region. He said the support he requires to achieve his presidential aspiration will come from other regions.

    The man is an irresponsible day dreamer. He is right about one thing though, he will be foolish to expect igbo people to support his presidential ambition. Of course we will not. We have better materials from Igbo land.

In the dirty game of politics, age is not considered key.

Although it determines the caliber of people a politician mingles with, it hardly gives cause for restriction.

It took the 80th birthday of philanthropist, Rasaq Okoya which held on Saturday, January 8, at Oluwa Ni Sola Estate, Lekki, Lagos for Mudashiru Obasa, the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly to find this out.

Sitting between the national leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwa Bola Tinubu and the celebrant Okoya on the high table, there was no hiding the fact that the man considered it a big privilege.

On the night, Obasa had a big grin of fulfillment on his face enjoying every bit of pleasure of the day.

“Everybody isn’t your friend. Just because they hang around you and laugh with you doesn’t mean they are your friend. People pretend well. At the end of the day, real situations expose fake people, so pay attention.”

The above quote is an innuendo to Aremo Adesegun Oniru, the former Lagos State Commissioner for Waterfront and Infrastructure development.
