Why Nigeria does not need to be restructured - Okorocha


Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state has rejected calls for the restructuring of Nigeria while advocating for the repackaging of the country. 

The governor who made the statement on Monday, July 17, at the 67th annual conference of the Broadcasting Corporation of Nigeria (BON) in Owerri, noted that Nigeria needed to be repackaged to attract investors, Vanguard reports. 

Okorocha in a statement by his chief press secretary, Mr Sam Onwuemeodo, said the image of Nigeria had been battered by negative reports which discourages visitors from coming into the country. 

Okorocha said: “Our nation requires repackaging. It is unfortunate that a great nation like ours has not been properly packaged for consumption by the international communities. 

Yet, there are more evils in other nations than we have in Nigeria, but the reports going out about our country are such that no one will want to come into Nigerian, unless for those who want to take risk. No nation can grow with this arrangement.

I want to charge you today, as you meet, think Nigeria and see how you can repackage it. We are not the worst of them all.” The governor said though every geo-political zone had its own interpretation of restructuring, what matters most is the unity of Nigeria. 

He said there is nothing wrong with Nigeria and Nigerians, adding that the country will forever remain a great nation. Okoracha stated that other countries would have collapsed if they experienced what Nigeria had passed through. 

 “I call on all Nigerians that this is a period to dramatise and demonstrate patriotism which is anchored in the spirit of sacrifice. 

We must accept the fact that this nation belongs to us and we do not have any other nation on the face of the earth outside Nigeria. So, it’s incumbent on us to fix Nigeria and make it better not only for us but for generations yet unborn. “You have a role to play. 

The news we have about our country outside Nigeria is not a good one and that has in many ways discouraged our investors. This is the time to speak less of the ugly situation we go through, this is the time to speak more about the potential in Nigeria. 

People keep destroying this country by what they say. Therefore, today, my plea would be to the national body that you get a space in your programme titled: ‘Repackaging Nigeria for Better,” he said.
