The poster reads the best from the north and south. Yes these two statesmen have a lot of qualities. The good old general buhari's Fight against corruption as a military head of state is legendary. And so is governor okorocha's generosity and humanitarian efforts. The coming together of these two giants looks like the real deal. But there's more.
General buhari was head of Nigeria's military regime from 1983 to 1985. Some years before I was born. 2 decades later, when I was in high school, jss 3 to be precise , he ran unsuccessfully for the 2003 elections At the age of 61. I assumed it was for the passion he had for the country, he came to save it from destruction. 4 years later in 2007, he run unsuccessfully again. This time I was in a freshman in college. He ran unsuccessfully yet again in 2011 at the age of 69. He Will be 73 when he runs again in 2015. Haba!!! When will the youths become the leaders of tomorrow?
When democracy was restored in 1999, Rochas Okorocha competed in the primaries to be People's Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for governor of Imo State, but lost to Achike Udenwa. He moved to the All Nigeria People's Party (ANPP), and was an unsuccessful candidate for President on the ANPP platform in 2003. He returned to the PDP, and President Olusegun Obasanjo appointed him as Special Adviser on Inter-Party affairs.
Rochas Okorocha formed the Action Alliance (AA) party in 2005, planning to become a Presidential candidate for the AA in the 2007 elections. He again returned to the PDP, and in September 2007 indicated that he was interested in becoming PDP National Chairman. Okorocha decamped from the PDP to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), to run as APGA candidate for Imo State Governor in the April 2011 national elections which he won. And now he intends becoming vice president in 2015 on the platform of yet another party; APC.
Such desperation for power and position isn't a very good criteria for a leader and leaves much to be desired.
