Out-going Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has vowed that nothing would stop him from becoming the president of Nigeria.
He said his current political travails were mere preparations for the glory ahead.
Okorocha, who spoke on Sunday during his valedictory thanksgiving service at the Government House Chapel in Owerri, described himself as the “most criticised person” in the country and for reasons he could not understand.
The embattled governor said all those planning for him to be sent to prison, would end up behind bars before him.
He insisted that he did not break any laws as governor of Imo State, but “bent the law” out of passion to give Imo the best.
He said: “I tell you, I am the most criticised person in Nigeria today. I don’t know why the entire elite hate me with cruelty.
“My Senate ambition is still a battle. More than 30 people have joined the suit to fight me. All these, I will overcome.

“They are only preparing me for the glory ahead.
“Mark it, I will be president of Nigeria. I said this on this altar so that the kingdom of God will rise against those fighting to stop me.
“Also, those who think they will put me in prison will go to prison before me.
“They don’t want me to be at the National Assembly, but I will be there. I know I am the last man standing, but I will not give up.
“Only a few of them later realised that I meant well for the state. I governed the state with passion. I broke protocols and bent the laws, but I never broke laws.
“When I took over the office eight years ago, I wasn’t unmindful that a lot of people will misunderstand me and try to distract me.
“But today, I have left the state better than I met it. I am the architect of the new Imo. I am a satisfied governor,” he said.
