Nigeria Is Stable – Governor Okorocha

The Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC) Governors Forum, Governor, Rochas Okorocha, had in an interactive session with journalists in Abuja while addressing some issues including the demand for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari over ill-health had said to say Buhari should resign is cheap talk.

The Governor said, “as you are aware, we are passing  through a very difficult time in our nation and we have a lot of challenges – political, economical, social, cultural and what have you. “

This is what many great nations of the world have passed through before getting to their point of greatness and Nigeria will not be an exemption. We must see this time as a trying period for Nigeria and by the grace of God, we shall overcome. So, this is the time to preach love, this is the time to love embrace one another, preach peace especially about more of the things that unite us as a people and not about the things that will divide us.

“And this calls to question, the recent statement credited to Governor Fayose over the health of the President. I want to advise that Fayose’s statement should not be regarded. It is baseless and there is no substance for that information. What he said is not right. It is uncalled for and that is simply heating up the polity.

In our culture and tradition, we do not play politics with people’s lives and anybody can be sick, anybody can be in the hospital and so, making such categorical statement which is unfounded that our President is on life support, to the best of my knowledge, is a statement of hate. That is a cheap talk and Nigerians should not regard it.

“What we should do right now is to pray for the President and wish him well. Anybody can be sick. Even as he is sick out there, many people have been sick in Nigeria. So, we should not politicise this and play politics with people’s lives thereby hate and confusion in the system.

Moreover, the country is stable. The Acting President is doing a beautiful job, meeting up the daily duties of the President and there is no vacuum so, there is no cause for alarm. We must, at this point give every support to our President and we are hoping that very soon, he will come back and join us.

President Muhammadu Buhari suffered a lot during the campaign when he was running for president. His health should be left only for God to decide. It is not for man to decide his fate. President Buhari came into power under unusual circumstances to defeat an incumbent president which  is very uncommon in our checkered political history but he did did so and I believe that is not the making of any man of God. So, I believe his health is in the hands of God and nobody should play politics with it.

“This is my advise to Nigerians. Let us focus on major issues that concern us as a nation. On that note, I appeal that everyone should disregard that statement. Mr. President will soon be back to commence daily duties.” He added.
