According to Rochas Okorocha, the set of people in Nigeria called Igbo, plays the worst politics. Granted this could be true, the following are also consequentially true.
1. That the said Okorocha, who happens to be the Governor of Imo State, is Igbo and thus a member of the said set. 2. It thus follows that Okorocha being Igbo is playing and plays the brand of politics he is castigating: the worst politics. All these are according to him.
Well, poor pitiful Okorocha could still be in grace. It is either he is mathematically or grammatically challenged. So he is mixing up his sets and the members thereof. Or perhaps it is just a matter of language or communication difficulties.
Anyway he can admit to his aggregative or numbering errors and correct himself. He just needs to rephrase it thus: all Igbo except one Rochas Okorocha, play the worst politics in Nigeria. Since he has not said this we will take him at his words and the implications thereof.
That is he has nothing to celebrate in being a governor by the logic of his assertion. This is so since he has by his own confessions been playing the worst politics. So the best act, or the best politics Okorocha can now play, is to fall on his sword, and apologize to Imo State, to the long suffering and Okorocha-bused Imo citizens and indigenes.
Immediately after this he should resign his governorship. Next he should ship out, back to Abuja from whence it is said he came. There he could be doing not the worst politics, but the best hustles he can.
Or perhaps there is really something in Okorocha saying Igbo plays the worst politics. You never get to know. But one could safely wonder.
