Imagine Joining Forces With Wike – Okorocha Hints On New Political Party by Kwanza: 6:21pm On Jan 11
Former Imo State Governor and the Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District, Rochas Okorocha has dropped a huge hint on the prospect of a new political force ahead of the 2023 general elections in the country.

Okorocha at the Commissioning of the Rumueche- Rumuakunde- Ohna- Awuse Road in Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State called for the integration of like minds from the Peoples Democratic Party PDP and the All Progressives Congress APC to accelerate the level of progress in the country.

Okorocha, who said he was in Port Harcourt on grounds of his friendship with the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike called on the people of the South East and South-South to synergize in view of the similarities in culture.

The former governor noted that there are good people and bad people both in APC and PDP and urged the alliance of like minds from the two political parties to make a difference.

“There are very bad people in APC and there are very bad people in PDP. So, I think the good people in APC and the good people in PDP must come together for the purpose of making Nigeria great.

“Then just imagine that I join forces Wike; something will happen.

“Governor Wike, this is my hand of friendship. Let us bring like-minds and all the great people of Nigeria and those that are complaining let us make this nation greater,”
Rochas said.

Earlier, host Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State said his decision not to complete the monorail project started by his predecessor Rotimi Amaechi was the choice of Rivers people.

He chided political opponents in Emohua for doing nothing to improve the lives of the people and mocked those who criticize his government saying they will remain perpetually blind since they claim to see nothing he has done.

He should leave abeg! We don't need him in APC! In fact, he should stop WASTING his time... If President Muhammadu Buhari refuses to seek a third term, then a morally upright candidate from the South West will emerge, while Governor El-rufai will emerge as his vice..

I was once a supporter of Dave Umahi because of my belief in equity and fairness.. But with the desperation of politicians from the South East, coupled with the hatred from our SE brothers and sisters, it'll be disastrous to hand over the presidency to them.. I'll not be a part of such an arrangement!

So it's cool! They should leave the APC! Let the FITTEST SURVIVE!

God bless Nigeria!

Hmmm. They better think again before going ahead except the two of them are getting ready for their final retirement.

One, despite just leaving office recently, has lost out completely in his Imo state while the other one has been feeding off the inability of Sen. Abe and HE Rotimi Amaechi to put their Rivers State APC house in order.

Asiwaju Tinubu left office since 2007 yet remained relevant. Talk is cheap. They should go and work very hard.

Oga Ade, if the south west can have politician in the likes of Rochas and Wike, Tinubu will be a child's play, Rochas is an old Politician, he is not having his way in the east because the east have a way of paying loyalty to politicians, while Wike and Tinubu will equally share southwest political structure, imagine Wike to be the governor of Lagos state, do you think Tinubu will have peace and not on exile?

Firstly, it will be disrespectful to compare Asiwaju to both of them because Asiwaju was already in the Nigerian Senate as far back as 1992 as the Senator representing Lagos West when none of the two was even known in the political firmament so he is not their mate in terms of political activism.

Now to ability to navigate the muddy waters of politics, sir, it is your results that speak for you.

I am not sure you are familiar with the politics of the south West so I won't bother to enlighten you on it sir. FYI, Asiwaju Tinubu still has political opponents in Lagos and the Southwest and these opponents are bigger than those two combined sir.

My poser is that if Asiwaju left office in 2007 and still relevant yet one left office few months ago and already behaving like a political orphan, then something is not adding up if you call such a strong political force.

What has Tinubu achieved that Rochas have not in politics, Tinubu is a Senator, and a two term Governor same as Rochas, interns of national appeal Rochas is a name well known allover the nation and beyond so what is the big deal, infact if you leave two of them on the ballot with out any help from any body or rigging and let Nigerians choose I bet you Rochas will floor him, that guy is loved in the north, as for Wike, he is a young man that started from a humble level as chairman of a local government, to chief of staff to minister and now two terms governor, and you are saying we should not compare, Oga answer my question, if Wike should be the present governor of lagos, will tinubu be having this free hand into the state purse and be relevant as he is presently?

Firstly, Wike is a Don on his own level, and you can't compare Lagos to Rivers State, one are full of zombies while the other are full of men and women with ball's and guts.

Secondly, Tinubu is afraid to speak out about his ambition, using proxies will not help him, if he thinks he is formidable let him come out now, like others, banking on the northern political machinery to do his work for him won't help me

Well, he made three Governors after him, which rochas couldn't do, he made a VP, rochas couldn't do so also. So maybe he should start by making a Governor first.

Wike is going to the senate. He has seen the hand writings. He knows the tricks. Presidency is between, Osibanjo and Amaechi, with Zulum and El Rufai as potential running mates. Okorocha will be a goner politically come 2023.

Look at what you are saying, clap for yourselves that you guys can't choose your own governor, because you guys have no thinking faculty.

Rochas failed because of that and he will continue to fail again and again if he tries it again in Imo State, we are not zombies, but I give it to him, he is a good politician and still loved by his people

Sir, Senator Okorocha is not even a ranking senator, it means he is a freshman Senator.The current governor of Imo state is higher in ranking than him in Senate traditional ranking let alone now comparing him to someone like Asiwaju who was a senator 30 years ago.

That Gen Buratai is a General today and have a higher rank than a major General doesn't make him mates with Major Gen. Buhari( Buhari did not promote himself to General).
Asiwaju was a Senator of Federal Republic of Nigeria 30 years ago sir.

You are still not getting it sir. Why will he leave office just few months ago and now a political orphan? Where is his political clout then?
I am sure even he and his successor don't see eye to eye yet you don't see anything wrong with his political credentials?


Even the alternative party he set up, is not doing fine. It is not about him as a person but what he achieved politically. As about those two becoming governors in Lagos, sir, they can't. From Gen Mobolaji Johnson to Alhaji Jakande and all the way to now Governor, HE Sanwo Olu, Lagos governors are people who have professional pedigree.
You must achieve success in your professional field before becoming governor in Lagos.

My advice to Sen Okorocha is to work hard and be humble. I don't know why it is difficult to admit it when someone is above you. Comparing Asiwaju Tinubu to him is disrespectful to Asiwaju Tinubu.

That you are free and emancipated today is the product of the sacrifice Lagos and its people made and continue to make.

That you don't appreciate it still does not change the fact.

Try make your place or state as formidable and progressive as Lagos so you can witness same progress.

Any attempt by other region to hijack the next presidential position from the Yorubas will be met with stiff resistance.

We all know it is the turn of the south westerners to bring fort a man to rule this great country.

The North had it turn through Yara'dua and Buhari.
The south south through Jonathan.

And the south Easterners through their son, Ebora Ndigbo (Oluchukwumasegun Obasannjo)wink

Rochas not been a ranking officer was as a result of INEC not giving him his certificate of return when others were given and sworn in, he had to go to court before he was given, that's not the main issue, my question was should Wike be the governor of Lagos state, will tinubu be able to breath fresh air, drink water and drop his cup in peace? Run Lagos as his father's estate? take orders from him before he sleeps with his wife, sign any contract paper ? Appointing his commissioners?

Tinubu can continue to command both Dick and Harry in Lagos State, because Lagos state has no body except Tinubu, you can't Compare Lagos to states like Anambra, Imo, River's, Edo, even Awka Ibom that have men with ball's, and can challenge any body money for money, thugs for thugs, spiritual for spiritual, oga name any strong man in that lagos, please don't mention Mr. Bode
