Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has said Nigeria needed to be repackaged and not restructuring as being demanded by some people.

Okorocha disclose this at the opening of the 67th annual conference of Broadcasting Organizations of Nigeria (BON) on Monday in Owerri, he said BON as critical stakeholder, should be in the forefront of the campaign against restructuring.

He urged BON to sell the massage of repackaging and explained that only repackaging could attract huge investors to Nigeria and help boost its economy.

“Many people have defined restructuring just to benefit their geo-political zones.

“To the South Easterners, restructuring means creation of an additional state, While it may mean resource control to other geo-political zones”, he said.

The governor said Nigeria has been presented in the bad light to other nations of the world which made it not marketable to the international communities.

“We are not the worst nation in the world in terms of corruption but we have been presented as the worst nation.

“I urged BON to see Nigeria as its project and repackage it so that we can regain our lost glories,” he said.
