The former governor of Imo State and a Presidential Aspirant under the All Progressives Congress (APC), Rochas Okorocha has been speaking about fellow aspirant, Bola Tinubu.
During an interview with Arise TV, Rochas claimed that Tinubu, a chieftain of the ruling APC feels he should be compensated with the Presidential ticket for his contribution to the party.
“I think it’s just natural, and that everybody should know, and I don’t know what’s behind the mind of Tinubu but I respect him a lot, but I think Tinubu is in distress because he feels that it’s a time to compensate him on the basis of the role he played in the formation of APC which some of us were part of it,” he said.
“He believed that he has made people and this is the time people should allow him or make him or something. More like a reward system. But more than that, we are talking about the nation called Nigeria. We have to have a nation first before personal and individual sentiments will come into play,” Okorocha added.
Furthermore, Okorocha added that even though he respects Tinubu, zoning the presidency to the South East in 2023 should happen naturally.
