A social crusader, Solomon Semaka and a Civil Society Organisation, Save Nigeria Movement (SNM) have given Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District, Rochas Okorocha 30 days to declare his ambition to contest for the nation’s presidency or mobilise one million graduates to compel him to stand for the office.
The duo believe Nigeria in its present form cannot survive without Senator Okorocha’s intervention as he possess the competence and patriotism as a business man as well as a politician to help the country as President and Commander.
