Former Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha on Monday announced plans to form a new political movement in Nigeria ahead of the 2023 general election.
Avant-garde reports that Okorocha, who previously gave the hint during his visit to Governor Nyesom Wike to commission projects in Rivers State, said the plan was a response to unrest and complaints across the country over the current state of the nation.
Speaking in Abuja, the representative of the Imo West Senate District said: “The movement for a new Nigeria has started and we have to come together, I mean progressive Nigerians to make the country work.”
Okorocha, who is also a founding member of the All Progressives Congress, further explained that the new group will not be like the APC which was hastily formed to take power from the PDP without overstating the character of those who defend. the lesson.
âThe APC was a rushed arrangement, it was hastily formed to seize power while the government of the day was adrift. APC would have been better off until people who weren’t party members; the people who came for a congratulatory message hijacked the party and became lords.
âThe problem is not with the APC or the PDP, it’s beyond political parties, we’re talking about the character of politicians.
âNigerian political parties have no ideology; it’s just a vehicle to gain power. So what we have is not the ideal thing, we have so many people who are not interested in working for the nation. Take for example if President Muhammadu Buhari surrounded himself with good people, the story will not be the same today.
“We have bad people at APC just like we have at PDP and that’s why I asked Rivers State for the good people to come together to lead the people.”
