Rochas Okorocha

Political leaders are the greatest threats to Nigeria’s unity, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, observed at the weekend.

The governor made this assertion on the strength that politicians “fan the embers of hatred, ethnic and religious intolerance”, warning them to desist from actions and utterances capable of undermining the country’s unity.

He spoke during the convocation ceremony of the Imo State University (IMSU), Owerri on Saturday.

The governor of Niger State, Alhaji Abubakar Sanni Bello, was awarded a Doctor of Business Administration Degree (Honoris Causa) at the convocation.

According to Okorocha, “The greatest threats to the country’s unity are the political leaders who talk and act in manners that pose serious threat to the country’s oneness. The ordinary citizens have no problem living together as one people; it is the political leaders who always engage in inciting actions and utterances.

“It is the high premium the government and the authorities of the Imo state University place on unity that made the institution decide to honour the Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sanni Bello. His coming here today is a dramatisation of the unity of the country. I think we can build the Nigeria of our collective dreams and aspiration”.

The host governor’s remarks were re-echoed by Gov. Bello, who stressed that Nigerians must unite for the greatness of the country.
