Okorocha Rochas Imo state governor has advised Igbos to vote wisely in the forthcoming presidential election,
Okorocha said this at a press briefing in the state Government House in Owerri on Tuesday. He further described the ongoing politics as a “war in a different dimension,” MYSTREETGIST has learnt.
He said that Igbos would fail woefully if they did not vote wisely noting that the choices they made in the past did not favour them.
According to him, Igbos will enter into another era of political captivity if they fail to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari.
The governor explained that his desire to become a senator was to represent the interests of Imo people in particular and Igbo as a whole and also remain politically relevant.
While canvassing for the All Progressives Congress (APC), the governor also urged voters not to look for instant gratification but focus in the future. He maintained that voting for any other candidate would only serve to ensure a “systematic colonisation of the Igbo and he vowed to resist it.
He said : “There is a new political battle in Nigeria, similar to the civil war when Igbo went to war without knowing what they were going into. The same war is coming but in a different dimension and it requires intelligence; if the Igbo people do not behave well this time, they will suffer politically.”
He also promised to change the trend where some elected officials representing the zone in the National Assembly enriched themselves to the detriment of the people.
