A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akwa Ibom, Inibehe Okori has said that President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari would shock Nigerians with his pronouncements on May 29, 2015, the day of his inauguration.

Chief Okori, who was the APC candidate for the Akwa Ibom North-West senatorial district, also said that Buhari would prove to Nigerians and the international community that corruption could be checked in the country.

Okori made the statements 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,” Okori said.

“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,” he added.

Buhari has expressed his readiness to probe Nigeria’s oil sector including the subsidy payment regime and the allegations of $20 billion going missing from the accounts of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
