Okorocha blames injustice, failed family system for insecurity

Former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has said injustice and failed family system are to blame for the rising insecurity in Nigeria.

He called for the involvement of women in governance and policy-making for the situation in the country to be a thing of the past.

Okorocha said this while receiving an Award of Excellence from the United Business Women Association of Nigeria and Diaspora.

According to him, “A woman is a special creation by God, women are givers and custodians of life, nations that ignore their women are considered failed nations while nations that make good use of their women are called developed nations.

“So if Nigeria must rise again, then we must make a turn around and look at the women. If we don’t carry the women along we are in for a very serious trouble”.

He added, “If any nation must get it right it has to start from the family, it is the bad family system that we have today that has given rise to insurgency and other criminality in the country. No sane woman who gave birth to a child will allow the child to go astray.

“The problem is that we have not taken care of the women and we have not empowered the women. Whatever you give a woman is what you get in return.

“While we men have succeeded in dividing this country along religious and ethnic lines, the women have remained a force of unity.

“For as long as we have not empowered the women in the house to give us good family, for as long as our politicians continue on the path of injustice, insurgency and kidnapping will never stop”.
