The Imo West Senator said Nigeria needs a wealth creator who can identify and stimulate the economic potentials of the country and not a manager.
He said majority of those in the presidential race are wealth managers who do not perfectly fit into the task of reengineering Nigeria to work.
Okorocha spoke shortly after being presented with the APC presidential nomination form procured for him by the New Nigeria Movement.
According to him: “There are so many in the Presidential race, I am not the best aspirant but I am who Nigeria needs to change the ugly narrative.
“In Nigeria we are going through abnormal situation, our country is associated with poverty, insecurity and others and an ideal person is needed to champion the nation.
“Nigeria requires a builder, not a manager. What I see happening is that many managers are aspiring to manage the nation but you must build first bringing the managers. My only agenda is to create wealth for Nigerians.”
He added: “All former Presidents meant well for Nigeria, none of them came with the intention to destroy this country but there are fundamental issues which I am coming to fix”.
Okorocha also advised APC delegates to vote wisely, saying ” I know you will be under intense pressure brought by religious, ethnic and political sentiments but one question you must ask yourself is what has been your gain . If you cast your vote by sentiment, don’t blame anyone later”.
Spokesman for the New Nigeria Movement, Prince Ebunola Martins, said the group was propelled to purchase the nomination form for the former Imo Governor because of the desire to rescue Nigeria.
He said Okorocha has the potentials to salvage the country, adding that he will be a detribalised leader that will unify the country.
