Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has said that the 56th anniversary of Nigeria’s independence would forever be indelible in the minds of the people of the state especially for heralding peace brought about by the surrendering of arms by militants operating in the restive areas of the state.
Gov Okorocha who stated this at the weekend during the celebration of the anniversary in his state said, “I agree with all of us that we are not there yet, but we are laying the basic foundation upon which other subsequent governments must build on if we must get to the promise land.
“Therefore, I enjoin Nigerians today to pray for this great nation and our states, particularly our brothers and sisters in the North-East who are having sleepless nights as a result of Boko Haram and other challenges”.
He continued, “We in Imo State are lucky and we give God all the thanks for having made it possible for us to conquer our Boko Haramic situation by letting the militants and avengers of Ohaji/Egbema and Oguta hand over their arms for amnesty.
On Biafra and Niger Delta militancy, he said…
“This we must accept as a no means great achievement. We also urge the Boko Haramists, other militants and agitators from other parts of the South East and South-South to follow suit. It is only then we can build the Nigeria of our collective hope and aspirations.”
While explaining some harsh measures he has un dertaken to transform the state, he said, “For me particularly and personally as your governor, I have come to take that radical step to make the state better.”
