Reports monitored on Channels TV’s Politics Today anchored by Seun Okinbaloye on Thursday night 7th January 2022 have revealed that by permutations the former Governor of Imo State and the Senator Representing Imo West has emerged as the only strong Presidential Aspirant of APC of the South East extraction for the 2023 General elections.
Analysts believe that the consideration for Sen. Okorocha could have been because of his antecedents as a unifier; probably the only Igbo prominent politician today that can be trusted by the north (as agitations for South East Presidency grow) given his huge investments there and elsewhere; born in the north, speaks their language and respects their culture and religion too.
Other observers believe that his wealth creating credentials could also be a big plus for these postulations by Channels TV at a time improving economy of the nation and providing jobs for the restive youths will be on the frontburners of the 2023 election campaign.
Senator Okorocha’s compassionate heart could also be one of the pointers given his decades of humanitarian works in the areas of free schools and support for the indigent and needy. This virtue can be adduced to be what a good leader must have.
As the race for the 2023 Presidency hots up, these early feelers from Channels TV brings up excitement and anxiety amongst Nigeria’s political class and the electorate.
