Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, said in Kano on Wednesday that his aspiration to rule Nigeria was borne out of his desire to rescue the country from disintegration.
Okorocha, who addressed the All Progressive Congress delegates from North-West at his education foundation premises in Kano, said APC will win the 2015 general election if he emerges the party’s presidential candidate.
The governor said his contacts and connections across the country give him edge over other aspirants, adding that he has what it takes to fix the problems of insecurity, education, agriculture, poverty, as well as ensuring the unity of Nigeria.
He argued that it is high time Nigerian leaders discard religious and ethnic sentiments, saying that can never be pre-requisite for power.
Okorocha, who once aspired to rule Nigeria under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), described the ruling party as a symbol of deceit and failed leadership.
