Okorie who spoke shortly after he inaugurated the newly elected Anambra State Executive Committee of the UPP at the state secretariat in Awka assured that his executive would do everything possible to ensure that the party takes the leadership position in the country, and Anambra State in particular.
He said the  South-East PDP leaders have failed their people and there was nothing they could do now to attract their votes.
He also disclosed that UPP was targeting the presidency, being the only party out of the 26 registered political parties in the country that made it a policy that its presidential candidate must come from the South-East.
“UPP is targeting the presidency of this country. President Jonathan is doing okay but a UPP President for Nigeria will do better. And let nobody think we are joking. There have been countries where a party with the popular manifesto, the popular candidate won the presidency without controlling the National Assembly. Greece is one of them.
“As for the National Assembly, our target is to clear the South-East to start with. And then of course make inroad in other places. We are not telling you that we will win the whole country” he said.
Citing Greece as an example, Okorie noted that there were instances where a party may had not controlled the National Assembly and yet it won the presidency, adding that UPP, being a mass movement would capitalize on Igbo support to upset the ruling party in 2015.
