Owelle Rochas Okorocha to run for Nigeria President come 2023. The group gave the call on Saturday 19th December 2020, in Owerri while officially unveiling their support/movement for the Imo state serving senator.

Addressing News Men shortly after the event, the national coordinator RPMG Mr Uba John Onyewuchi posited that the mandate given to Rochas by the group to run for President was not steered up by political sentiments nor greed but on the basis that Owelle Rochas Okorocha from his antecedents possesses the political clout to pilot the affairs of the country. Ubá added that when Rochas ruled as the governor of Imo, the dividends of democracy was very much evident in the state as various sectors was carefully and prudently managed to the growth and development of the State.

Speaking further he stated “ Judging from his political scorecard over the years, there is no doubt Owelle fits in as the best candidate from the Igbo extraction to run for President come 2023. His wealth of experience in politics speaks volume of his capacity and I Can say categorically, speaking the minds of majority that Owelle is the man to fill the lacuna missing in Nigeria political system and as well transform the Nation from her sorry state of despondency to a much anticipated better state the masses long for”.

That’s why we have assembled under the umbrella of RPMG to urge his excellency Senator Rochas Anayo Okorocha to run for President of the country as we pray and know that success will surely prevail on his presidential aspirations if obliged” he stated. The group however donated a whooping sum of 20 million Naira and other gifts from the women wing to support his presidential aspirations. They also called on political parties and the Federal government to put an end to the long-existing Igbo marginalization as they maintained that a south Easterner should be given a meritorious ground to run for President come 2023.

The group which has its structures across the 27 local government of Imo state as well other states in southeast and South-South however called on every citizen of the country to subscribe to the vision of change as the quest to restore sanity to the decayed political system in Nigeria shouldn’t be far fetched, stressing that Owelle Rochas Okorocha should be the visionary mandate.

Okorocha noted that all regions have produced a president asides the South-East. He said; 

“I am happy because you find me worthy. I am happy because you have made huge sacrifices driving through the long distance to meet with me on Nigeria’s presidency. I have read in between lines of your submission. That you want a Nigerian presidency of Igbo extraction and you have found me worthy for this position. I feel honoured and I am happy.

“Let me salute you in the manner which you have conducted yourself in a more peaceful approach and this is commendable.

“It is true that Igbo are highly misunderstood but allow me to say that Igbo are the most peaceful Nigerians and wherever you find them they are building bridges of peace and economic development. The Igbos are the only people that have invested more outside than what they had invested in their own land.

“Igbo people alone cannot make the president of Nigeria. We need the support of other regions of this country to produce the president of Nigeria. We need the Hausa, Yoruba and other regions to be able to produce the presidency.

“For me, I have run for this office of the presidency using different political parties and up to three times now, I have run for the office of the presidency under the ANPP, and the second time under PDP, the third time in APC, and now If I must run it is for the unity of Nigeria. If I must run, it must be for the empowerment of the youths of Nigeria, and if I must run for the presidency, it will be to make this nation compete with other greater nations of the world economically.

“The North has produced a president, the West has produced the president and the South-south has also produced a president of this country and we have seen all they have done. It is time for Igbo to produce a president and let us see how the Igbo will change this country.”
