Senator Rochas Okorocha, representing Imo West Senatorial district has said his biggest political enemy is from his State.
Okorocha made the statement on Thursday at a public lecture in Abuja organised by the All Progressives Congress (APC) Press Corps.
Recall that Okorocha and the current state governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma has been having loggerheads following Uzodinma’s quest to recover the state assets allegedly converted by Okorocha during his administration as Imo governor.
Speaking during the event, Okorocha spoke against secessionists as not the solution to the challenges confronting the country.
The senator noted that Nigeria was going through a difficult time and advised leaders to prioritize the issue of justice.
He said; “Our almagmation without the people coming together to discuss and how they can respect each other have been a major issue and secondly, we were not able to create a myth. So we need more of a myth than what we call reality.
“We need to create a myth that can make us feel together as one indivisible people. but not that this myth is not created and political parties tend to divide us.
“What we must do as a people is to address the issue of injustice as a nation, starting from the stomach injustice which we call hunger. For instance, I don’t have any enemy from the North or South West. The biggest political problem I have recently is from the South East, from my State.
“Number two, every leader that emerges in this country must treat Nigeria as a family, must never show segregation of any kind. If you know an Igboman, an Igboman is not asking for anything, he is asking for a level playing ground. Do you know if today people are doing what Ganduje did in Kano, giving Igbo people appointments, if every other Governor does that, shows a sign of love beyond area of tribe and religion, he will be uniting this country?”
The event was graced by other high ranking APC Chieftains, including Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
