Gov. Rochas Okorocha has called for an “All political parties summit” in a bid to bring Nigerian leaders of diverse political affiliation into a round-table towards addressing the political quagmire that has slowed down development in the country.
Gov. Okorocha, who made the call when a delegation led by Director-General of National Orientation Agency (NOA), Dr. Mike Omeri paid him a courtesy visit in government house, Owerri, posited that such forum would provide the needed opportunity for Nigerian leaders to realize the essence of embracing good governance in democratic setting.
In the words of the Governor….
” It is unfortunate that our democracy has continued to produce more politicians than leaders and that accounts the reason why the politicians only think about next election instead of next generations. It is worrisome today that we do not know when to discard politics for governance and the continuous mixture of both politics and governance has continued place us far below what democracy stands for”. He said.
Applauding the initiative of the NOA boss, His Excellency stated that the Do-It-Right-Programme would go a long way to re-orientate Nigerians towards changing their attitude as well as build a lasting bridge that will sustain unity and peace in the country. He attributed the numerous achievements recorded by his administration within the shortest period to sacrifice and commitment to good governance which he said is the diving force of the rescue mission government. Gov. Okorocha reiterated his resolution not to play politics with the development of Imo state even as he promised that his administration will only embark on people-oriented programmes that will impact positively on the lives of the people.
