Rochas Okorocha, has blamed the Nigerian system as cause of IPOB agitation

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has blamed the Nigerian system for the rise of agitation by the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra in the South East.
Okorocha said the country had relegated issues concerning women, youths to the background and that the agitations by the leading pro-Biafra group is a proof that youths had been neglected.

He said, “I am happy because I love you. I am happy because I believe that the local government is the closest government to the ordinary person in the street.

“I have seen women in Nigeria struggling for recognition and I see misrepresentation of women in the society and the failure to give women responsibility is why things are going the way it is in this country.

“This country has neglected the women and youths. Imagine the IPOB, they are not people of my age. It is time to engage the youths of this country.

“Let me say this, we must go back to agriculture. And there is no system more qualified to talk about agriculture if not the local government system. I want this conference to include agriculture in their agenda.”
