Owelle Rochas Okorocha is the Most Unpopular Igbo Presidential Material

Owelle Rochas  Okorocha, the Governor of Imo State in the south east of Nigeria is the man the national ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) will select as their Vice Presidential candidate in the 2019 presidential election that is less than two years away. And the best intentions of the APC is for him to succeed their next Hausa President in the 2023 presidential election "to compensate the Igbos".

Okorocha will make a good Vice President and a pragmatic President, but his major problem is his bad public relations among the majority of Igbos in the south eastern states. He is the most unpopular presidential material from the south east. And he is to blame for neglecting his public relations among his own people.
He has no public relations plan.
Having a goody-goody advert on the CNN is irrelevant to majority of Igbos who don't watch the CNN.
He needs a down to earth grassroots public relations campaign which will make him more popular among the Igbos who are the most literate electorate in Nigeria.
Okorocha has to start his grassroots campaign for the presidential election now before it is too late.

The defeated former national ruling party,
People's Democratic Party (PDP) has the most popular potential Igbo presidential candidates. And they are the following outstanding personalities in democracy and governance in the nation building of a New Nigeria.

Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
She served two terms as the Federal Minister of Finance (2003-2006; 2011-2015) and was a former Managing Director of the World Bank (2007-2011). She currently chairs the Board of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI). She has been named as an independent non-Executive Director at Standard Chartered PLC in the UK.

Mr. Peter Obi, the amiable and humble astute former Governor of Anambra State.  He is a very patriotic nation builder.

Senator Ken Ugwu Nnamani, the forner  President of the Senate of Nigeria from 2005 to 2007.
He is one of the few good Igbo leaders in the People's Democratic Party (PDP).

Senator Ike Ekweremadu, the Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate for the third consecutive time. Ekweremadu's patriotism is based on his political pragmatism.
