The governor of Imo state Rochas Okorocha has said that after President Buhari’s re-election in 2019, he will succeed him as Nigeria’s President in 2023.
He disclosed this during a meeting with political stakeholders in Douglas House, Imo Government, Owerri.
“Buhari will win again and again and after Buhari, the turn will come to South-East and it will be the turn of Okorocha.”
He equally spoke further about his Son-In-Law Uche Nwosu who he intends to hand over to as governor in 2019.
“Nwosu is the least of the political children I have trained but I don’t know any of them as much as I have known Nwosu,” Okorocha said.
“I took him up when he was just nobody and he grew to the height he is now, his only sin is that he is my son-in-law. “Nwosu will win in 2019, don’t be afraid, I am there.”

If politicians (like Rochas Okorocha) were to be judged by what they say with their mouth then hardly will any of them pass an integrity test, so one will be eager to ask where then is the honor of a leader/leadership if they can’t say what they mean or mean what they say? If in a whole state or nation you are elected to be the number one citizen it then means to a large extent you are unique and highly or more qualified than the various options available. That equals a dignity in character, honor in words, courage to lead and other qualities expected of a leader.
Being a leader means you are the compass of your people, state, and nation. You chart the course for them to follow, their fate lies on you, your decisions, actions, and inaction. In essence, their lot in that vicinity or territory of your leadership depends on you. If they are made better it is to your credit and if they are worse for it, you are equally discredited.
