I Wish Rochas Well But He Can't Take Igbos Forward in Nigeria- Odinkalu
Complaining about the state of things in Imo, he said the government does not appear to have the attention span of the serious responsibility of government.
“I am sure the government means very well but sometimes we got to admit that people may be on the wrong job and I think he is. I wish him very well but the thing is that we cannot continue to keep the wrong people in the wrong job.
“I say here, Imo state is the most educating state in the country, highly globalized and internationalized. It needs to begin to think of the kind of government of leadership and structure that will reflect the awareness structure of it demographics.
“Listen, if we Igbo are to compete at the Nigeria level in a manner that makes our people rise up with dignity then we can’t continue to have this type of level of governance. We got to say no to it.”
He spoke at the first Imo Good Governance Lecture which was held in Owerri during the weekend.
