Speaking at the celebration of his 52nd birthday in Owerri yesterday, Okorocha said that he would properly fix Nigeria with the right values if he is elected president.
“If elected the president of this country, I would remain a detribalised leader, as true Nigerian born by Igbo parents, educated by the North and empowered by the West. With the help of God, I have fixed Imo State and I will also fix Nigeria to the glory of God,” he said.
The governor said that his success story would not be complete without acknowledging the North for giving him the needed education adding that the West gave him the contact which gave him his financial success.
He vowed to make education free at all levels in the country as he has done in Imo State if elected the next president of the country saying: “my joy lies on the fact that God has blessed me to bless others. Seventy-five percent of my wealth goes to charity.”
Okorocha advised Nigerians to discard ethnic sentiments to enable the country achieve her goal of greatness and appealed to people to say no to the deceit of ethnic and religious factors which, he said, have torn the country apart and embrace one another.
