Imo State Governor and a presidential aspirant under the All Progressive Congress (APC), Owele Rochas Okorocha has accused prominent Nigerians of reaping large profits from the insurgency in the north.
Gov. Okorocha made this allegation when he paid a visit to the National Secretariat of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) in Kaduna.
According to him, top military officers, politicians, contractors and government officials are smiling to the banks daily with millions and that is why they do not want the insurgency come to an end.
“We all know that some people are benefiting from this insurgency and that’s why they don’t give a damn to the number of lives lost or property destroy in as much as their bank accounts is growing.
“On a serious note, I know what I’m saying. I have information about this. If not for the benefits this well placed Nigerians are getting from the insurgency, they would have stopped this madness long ago. Let me also inform you that if Jonathan is re-elected he will not stop boko haram and that is why we (Nigerians) have to think twice before electing him for another four years,” he said.
Okorocha who said he was at the ACF office to solicit the support of those he termed as fathers, promised that he will stop insurgency if elected as president without any hassle, because all he has to do is to make it non-profitable to those benefiting from it.
