State Of The Nation: I See A New Nigeria, Rochas Says

96

Senator representing Imo West Senatorial district in the 9th Senate, Senator Rochas Okorocha has said that he sees a new Nigeria rising soon. The ideas of our leaders have finished but Nigeria can never finish. I want to urge all of you to begin to speak well of this country, there is power in the spoken word. He spoke when he attended Dominion Chapel International Church on Sunday. The former Imo Governor said “I belong to that class of our nation that you all say has failed our nation and I take responsibility. Nigeria is not finished and Nigeria can never be finished”. He cautioned men of God saying; “And you men of God and women of God it is incumbent on you to be positive with our nation because your positive word can help our nation to a great extent”. He lamented the state of the nation, saying; “I do know that our nation is going through a very difficult moment and that all is not well with our nation. The bloodletting in our nation has become more than that of the civil war and Nigerians now live in fear with poverty and injustice, I agree with you”. The APC stalwart expressed optimism that inspite of the challenges currently bedeviling the nation, a new Nigeria will rise soon. He charged the clergymen and clergywomen to rise up to their responsibilities as religious leaders. He said unity is the panacea to the country’s challenges. He concluded his message by preaching tolerance as it is a virtue in the Christian faith. Attached is a YouTube link to the video:
