A letter written by former Imo State Governor and current Imo West Senator, Rochas Okorocha, announcing his presidential ambition has surfaced online.
Naija News earlier reported that the controversial lawmaker on Wednesday openly declared his intention to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
The former governor said he plans to contest the presidency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He added that he would officially declare his ambition for the 2023 presidency at a world press conference scheduled for Monday 31st January 2022.
During the plenary, Senate President Ahmad Lawan read a letter forwarded to the Red Chamber by Okorocha confirming his intention to join the 2023 presidential race.

Meanwhile, the convener of Concerned Nigerian movement, Deji Adeyanju has stated that the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu should be in jail rather than out there running for the presidency.
The human rights activist pointed to the fact that the former Governor of Lagos State has unaccounted billions to his name with no known source of income.
Adeyanju in an interview with Daily Post noted that Tinubu’s decision to run for Presidency is an insult to the sensibility of Nigerians.
He lamented that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has refused to act on a petition calling for Tinubu’s prosecution.
