Okori said Buhari would prove to Nigerians and international community that corruption could be checked in the country.
Okori said this on Sunday, May 3, while speaking in Uyo, the capital of Akwa Ibom.
“Unlike other presidents who were not prepared for leadership but foisted on the country by individuals and interest groups, the President-elect has consistently presented himself to the electorate to lead the country on four occasions and had his visions well enunciated,”
“Buhari is taking over government on May 29 and from that day, I expect that he will make major pronouncements that will position Nigeria for greatness. This country must have a direction and move in the way it should. We don’t have any reason to be poor. We have no reason to remain the way we are – not after earning more than $50bn annually from oil and gas,”
