Imo Governor Rochas Okorocha has said that the security situation in the Northeast region caused by the Boko Haram insurgency would have been worse if President Muhammadu Buhari was not in power.
Okorocha, during the Armed Forces Remembrance Day Emblem Launch for 2019, on Wednesday, held at the Government House in Owerri, noted that Buhari must be commended for the fight against insurgency and passion for Nigeria.
Okorocha said, “I want to commend President Buhari for his show of leadership with what is happening in the North East. I don’t know what the situation in the North-East would have been like if President Buhari was not the President of Nigeria now.
“It would have been better imagined than seen. President Buhari must be commended, if not for anything, his fight against insurgency and his love for his country.
“I am not one of those who campaign for him for what he has done; I campaign for him, for who he is. Buhari means well and he is not a cheat. Buhari will not lie to Nigerians.
“If he has made any mistake, it is a human mistake but he loves his nation and wants to do the best for this country without counting cost of returns”.
Okorocha added: “I am here to encourage you and officially launch this emblem as a remembrance of those who had lost their lives and particularly for the widows who, from time to time remember the wonderful time they had with their spouses when they were still alive and what life looks like now without them.
“Ours is not to support you to sorrow but remind you of the wonderful sacrifices made by your spouses for our nation. This nation is with you and your governor is with you. We are all with you in prayers and we shall support you the much we can.”
