“Governor Obiano is not my mate” – Gov Rochas Okorocha

Published

on

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has said that he is not on the same level with his Anambra State colleague, Willie Obiano. Okorocha said further that comparing him with Obiano would be like comparing legendary footballer, Lionel Messi with the left wing player of Mbieri Secondary school.
The Imo governor made the comment via a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo.

Okorocha and Obiano are at loggerheads over the Imo governor’s claim that three South-East governors are planning to join the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The statement reads in part:
“That
kind of motor park language was unexpected from a governor of a state
who answers His Excellency, even when the Anambra governor did not
explain what he meant by that. In what way was Governor Okorocha not an
example of what a leader should be?”
“Governor
Okorocha’s claim was a healthy one, expected to provoke sound debates,
which is the beauty of democracy. Governors with ideas and the right
exposure gave their polite reactions, but the one without ideas (Obiano)
took to insults. Only men with nothing to offer in terms of ideas take
delight in insulting others. Men of ideas do not insult others.
“Leadership
is all about ideas and service. Luckily enough, Obiano has been
governor for almost four years while Okorocha has also been governor for
five years now. Let Obiano publish his achievements in Anambra State
even with high IGR, and let Governor Okorocha also publish his
achievements in Imo. Then, we take off from there.
“As
governor, Owelle Okorocha came up with ideas and popular policies like
free education at all levels which has been working well in Imo,
Community Government Councils (CGC), urban renewal programme, Ikuola
Nkwu, Imo Air, massive road networks, building of universities,
infrastructural revolution, and so many others. Let Governor Obiano
mention at least one programme his government in Anambra State is known
for, almost four years as governor.
“We may at
this point, challenge journalists from the South-East to embark on
project tours of Imo and Anambra and make their findings known to the
public. Obiano, no doubt, has taken Anambra State several kilometres
backward, while in Imo, Okorocha has raised the bar of leadership or
governance.

“To
say the least, comparing Okorocha with Obiano is like comparing Messi
of Barcelona FC with the left wing player of Mbieri Secondary in
Mbaitolu LGA of Imo State.”
Okorocha had earlier said that only the APC could guarantee members of the Igbo tribe a shot at the presidency.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

on

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
