Rochas Okorocha, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and former governor of Imo State, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has failed to live up to his campaign promises and also failed Nigerians.

He also pointed out that the Fed­eral Government had been over­whelmed by the spate of insecurity in the country.

He cautioned Nigerians against allowing themselves to be used to profile one another along ethnic lines.

Okorocha, who is the Senator the tendency to wrongly prorepresenting Imo West, said file Nigerians based on the spate of insecurity in the land would send the wrong signals to armed groups ready to negotiate with the authorities. ­

Speaking in Abuja during a meeting with a group, Ni­gerians in Diaspora Asso­ciation in South Africa, he said: “When Jonathan came to power, the issue of corrup­tion became heightened and America took interest in the corruption in Nigeria and they needed somebody who had zero-tolerance for cor­ruption.

“The issue of Boko Haram became very high (Chibok girls, if you remember), peo­ple forget history very soon.

“It was on that basis also that Jonathan lost election and Buhari became president for two reasons: (first) that Bu­hari was going to jail all the corrupt people in Nigeria, like he did when he was military head of state and (second) that he will stop Boko Haram – that was the situation back then.”

He added: “But today what is threatening the unity of Nigeria – polarization of the country.

“So, Nigerians are look­ing for who can unite them, they want an Igbo, Hausa, or Yoruba man who can bring the country back together.”

The lawmaker further called for calm, insisting on the need to abhor reprisals.

“When Boko Haram start­ed, it killed more northerners than even the Igbo and Yoruba in Nigeria and they are still killing them up till date.

“They kill Muslims, Hau­sas – the Chibok girls are not Igbo girls; they are northerners. So, this is the situation we have found ourselves.”
