The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has called on young Nigerians not to imitate the bad side of their leaders just as he said, he will handover leadership to the younger generation.
Okorocha stated this in Owerri as part of his message during the 56th Independent day celebration of Nigeria in the state.
He said, “we will soon hand over the nation to you, where we have failed as your parents, you cannot afford to fail, you must all work hard to build the Nigeria of our collective dreams and aspirations. You must stand firm and never repeat the mistakes of your past leaders.
Nigeria is on the path of greatness.” On the issue of the current recession Nigeria is passing through he said, “In the past few years, nobody was talking about Agriculture, but oil. And today, Agriculture has become the unavoidable issue in the nation’s debate or discuss.
All these point out the fact that the nation is moving to the fast lane of development and growth.” “Whatever challenges the country is facing at the moment could not be said to be strange because all the big nations of the world we celebrate today had also passed through such challenges and even more traumatizing challenges.”
The Governor also urged Nigerians to engage in activities that would strengthen the existing unity in the country and that inspite of the ethnic and religious differences that Nigeria has remained indivisible country.
“At 56 Nigeria has remained a united nation not minding the glaring diversities, and charged Nigerians of goodwill to begin to see light at the end of the nation’s tunnel both in her economy, politics, development and growth.”
