Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has revealed why he remains a wealthy man.
He spoke at the weekend during the 20th anniversary of Rochas Foundation in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
“Let me make a confession. Giving has not made me poor. Giving has rather made me rich. So I stand bold to say today that I am a wealthy man”, Thisday quoted him as saying.
“And let no one envy me because you may be envying the God that created me. The more I give, the more I get and no one can stop me from giving. And I have transferred the spirit of giving to my children.
“20 years ago, no one would believe that these thousands of children would have been the beneficiaries of this foundation.
“Most of you do not know what propelled me into doing this. It is a contractual agreement which I signed with my creator out of the hardship and difficulties of life that I went through.
“In the course of prayers, I told God Almighty that in any way He blessed me, I will bless others and in any way you give me, I will share with those who do not have. That was my submission to God Almighty,” he said.
