OKOROCHA CALLS FOR PROPER POLITICAL reformsation

 

 

Former Governor and Senator representing Imo western Senatorial zone, Mr. Rochas Okorocha, says Nigeria is a strong Nation going through trying moments.

The senator said this during an interactive session with members of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), FCT Council in Abuja on Monday.

The conversation which was organized by Fct chapter of the National Union Journalists was part of activities carved out to commemorate the Senator’s 59th birthday anniversary, which is coming up on the 22nd September, 2021

Senator Okorocha, harped on issues of unity and development of the country, adding that it is imperative to have a proper political reformation to allow the Nation benefit from its natural resources.

He pointed out that the Nigerian citizens appeared to be far away from governance which according to him is due to a communication gap between the people and the government.

He therefore called for a deliberate engagement of the youths, noting that it will assist in keeping them away from participating in unworthy activities that will alter the peaceful co-existence of the nation.

He added that the judiciary system must be empowered to promote patriotism, according to him there lies the greatness of the anticipation of a New Nigeria.

 

The former Governor and senator who is known for his advocacy for the reduction in the cost of governance by reducing the number of Senators to one for each State and three House of Representatives Members from each state, however, said the take home of the Senators was not that much, compared to their status and the cost of living.

“But truly speaking, can the N3m for housing allowance pay for the rent of a Senator? Except if you want them to go and live in Maraba and Nyanya he added”

 

The event featured presentation of icon of humanitarian award to Senator Okorocha by the the FCT NUJ, Chairman, Mr. Emmanuel Ogbeche and his team in recognition of his contributions to the emancipation of the Nigerian children through the Rochas foundation program.
