Rochas Okorocha: If Buhari can’t afford hospital bills, more than 20m Nigerians will contribute
Rochas Okorocha Verbatim”: “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. I want to advise that 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 one another, this is the time to embrace one another, this is the time to preach peace especially in more of the things that unite us as a people and talk not at all the things that will divide us.
“And this called to question the recent statement created to Governor Fayose over the health of Mr. President. I want to advise that Fayose statement should not be regarded, is baseless and there is no substance in 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 pray politics with peoples’ lives and anybody can be sick, anybody can be in the hospital and so making such categorical statement which is unfounded that Mr. President is on life support, is to the best of my knowledge 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 Mr. President, 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 politicize this and play politics with people’s lives and try to create hate and confusion in the system.”
