The former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, on Tuesday, April 26, said that President Muhammadu Buhari is an unpredictable individual.

Daily Trust reports that Okorocha said that the possibility of President Buhari surprising everyone especially members of the All Progressives Congress ahead of the 2023 presidential election is high.

Speaking while making an appearance on Channels Television's Politics Today, the former governor and lawmaker said several Nigerians would be surprised at the president's choice of presidential candidate in 2023.

Okorocha also noted that President Buhari's choice of a successor would be guided by the mood of the nation and in the interest of the nation and members of the ruling party.

His words:

“If you know President Muhammadu Buhari, he is a general and unpredictable. You cannot predict what he will do. He may pull everybody by surprise.

“Buhari is very intelligent as he may decide to consider some factors: he will look at the mood of the nation and see who will actually fit into the mood.

"So, he will be smart enough to say this person can and that (person) cannot; there will be a lot of consultations.”
