- Senator Rochas Okorocha has said that a new political movement would be formed soon
- Okorocha made the disclosure on Monday, January 18
- The former governor of Imo state noted that APC and PDP have failed Nigerians
Rochas Okorocha, a former governor of Imo state and serving senator, has said that he and other progressive minded politicians are muting a new political order ahead of 2023.
The Nation reports that he said this is as a result of the silent agitations and complaints across the country against the current state of the nation.
Legit.ng gathered Okorocha said on Monday, January 18, that it is obvious that people are not satisfied with what is on the ground from their body language, adding that there is an urgent need for the regrouping of the ‘good politicians’ to restore public confidence in governance and save the country.
Okorocha, who represents Imo West, recently stirred controversy when he called for the good people in APC and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to come together and rescue Nigeria in 2023, while commissioning projects in Rivers state, at the instance of the State governor, Nyesom Wike.
The former governor insisted that the country needs political re-engineering, warning that Nigerians cannot be fooled again by mischievous politicians in 2023.
“The movement for a new Nigeria has begun and we must come together, I mean progressive Nigerians to make the country work."
Okorocha, however, said that the APC was hurriedly formed to take power from the PDP without much emphasis on the character of those championing the course.
He assured that the political coalition is being championed by people with a proven track record of achievement and public spirit, noting that it is no more ideal to allow people who do not have a genuine love for the unity and progress of the country to hijack power.
“APC was a hurried arrangement, it was hurriedly formed to take power when the then government was drifting. APC would have been better until people who were not members of the party; people who came for congratulatory message hijacked the party and became Lords.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that ahead of the 2023 presidential election, an influential group in the north, Northern Youth Leaders Forum (NYLF), disclosed the names of politicians they are considering to support for the number one seat.
It was reported that Comrade Elliot Afiyo, the national chairman of the group, said the group will consider supporting candidates for the 2023 presidency from the south and northeast geopolitical zones exclusively.
