Governors Must Steal- – Okorocha

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, says the issue of stealing while in government, becomes an issue only when one has not met the expectations of the people.

“I am for target”, Okorocha said during an interview with Channels Television, clips of which have gone viral on social media.

“If I give you a target and you perform it, that is good enough. But if you keep searching for some level of corruption, that is where it looks like it is vindictive.

“Because there is no man on earth, in Nigeria, from A to Z, who will say he lives (only) from the money you pay him monthly.

“The salaries of Governors are N750,000 monthly, so if you do not have a second office, and you do not have something (else) to do, you must steal.

“Excuse me, every political office holder who does not have a second office must steal.

“So, but if you give a target; excuse me, you then perform your work, and people see the way you have done it and it is correct, they are fine.

“In Imo State, if you come to Imo State now, people are happy with the performance. They are happy. Their children are going to School without school fees, they are happy.”
