The Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has said that Nigerian youths lack information, communication and enlightenment.
Okorocha said this while speaking at the first Imo Youth Annual lecture, Vanguard reports.
The Governor also urged the youths to get the needed information from those who are above them.
He said “Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has said that the difference between the rich and the poor is information and then told the youths in the Country that since information is key to success, they should therefore develop appetite for information. “As the future of this great Country and State, you must rise to convert your potentials into action. Arouse your kinetic energy and see results of what you can do or become in the nearest future.
“To do this, the very key is information. There is no difference between the rich and the poor but information. Make friends with somebody you can answer Sir. Seek transfer of knowledge rather than seeking for money, for money can finish but knowledge is always there.
“You are created with something deposited right inside you and never fail nature that expected you to rise to fulfill your dreams. So you must not fail creation. Lack of vision brings poverty and the worst poverty is poverty of the mind. You must set lofty and achievable goals for yourselves.”
Governor Rochas Okorocha has come under fire recently for swearing in his sister, Ogechi Ololo as the commissioner for Happiness and Couples' Fulfillment.
Some Nigerians on social media have asked the Governor to explain what a Commissioner for Happiness and Couples' Fulfillment will do.
Others also wondered why he should give the position to his sister.
