Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has likened the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari to late former South African President, Nelson Mandela.

Okorocha stated this while addressing indigenes of his state during an event at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos.

The governor urged his kinsmen to give Buhari a chance to rule Nigeria and clear the rot in the polity.

“Buhari is the Mandela of our time. At 72, what does he want?” Okorocha said.

“He will do one term, fix the country and move on and then power will be come back to the South. When power rotates to the South, the South-East will have it in 2019 because the South-West has had it through Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and the South-South through Dr Goodluck Jonathan,” he added.

President Goodluck Jonathan had also been earlier likened to the iconic anti-apartheid leader by his aide, Doyin Okupe.
