The Imo West Senator, Rochas Okorocha, on Thursday, declared that Igbo presidency does not exist.

Okorocha made the assertion while warning people of the South-East against the misconception of the term “Igbo presidency”.

Addressing journalists after being sworn in as a Senator, the former governor said: “Power is not given, power is taken.

“The South East cannot just fold their arms and expect power to be given to them just because you want power. Power does not go with sentiment some of the times, it’s on issues on ground.

“Democracy is about the people and the South East alone cannot make themselves president. So you cannot be talking about Igbo presidency, it doesn’t exist. We may be talking about Nigeria’s president of Igbo extraction but that depends on what other geopolitical zones think about the issue.

“For me, what is important is let power be given to somebody who has something upstairs who can put food on the table of common man, irrespective of religion or where you come from.

“There is need for the Igbo to mend fences. We are neither here nor there now politically. We are not in the ruling party, neither are we making impact in the opposition. So, there is need for us to get married to the rest of the nation politically.”
