How To End Boko Haram Insurgency In 2Months – Okorocha

Imo State Governor Chief Rochas
Okorocha has said Nigeria could end the
threat being posed by Boko Haram in just
two months if visionary and efficient
leadership is encouraged in the country.
Okorocha stated this on Friday during a
dinner organised by him for media
executives and nominees from across the
country, who were in Owerri, the Imo State
capital for the Nigeria Media Merit Award
2014.
According to him, insurgency has
continued to gain prominence in Nigeria
because some people are benefiting from
fighting the insurgents.
He however agreed that no leader plans
to fail, and as such, President Goodluck
Jonathan and other leaders before him
never had bad intentions for the country.
Okorocha said that the country’s major
problem was the inappropriate usage of
its human and material resources, which
he said was part of the reasons why the
government has not been able to
successfully tackle insurgency in Nigeria.
“No nation is poor in terms of human and
material resources, the problem has
always been about leadership,” he
stressed.
As part of solution to the current
challenges facing the country, Okorocha
advocated for devolution of power.
“The president is too powerful while the
masses continue to suffer,” he said.
The Imo chief executive challenged
journalists to be bold enough to question
political leaders about their activities,
noting that that “the media profession
has lost the culture of investigative
journalism.”
