Imo State governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, has called on his Ndigbo kinsmen to stop wasting resources in developing other land. He asked them to return to the East and set up their businesses instead of helping other states like Lagos, Kano to grow.
Okorocha stated this while commissioning a hotel in Arondiziogu in Ideato council area of the state on Tuesday.
He said, “I commend the proprietor of this hotel for coming home to invest. He could have built this hotel in Abuja or other places knowing too well that he could have made more profit, but he chose to think home. Let’s all come home, develop our area and create jobs for our people.”
The governor further directed the ministry of Works to assess the cost of drainage and asphalting the road leading to the area.
According to him, “We don’t have to tell anybody to invest at home; anyone who has ear, let him hear. Why do we have to develop Abuja, Lagos, Kano, Port Harcourt and other places? We should always think home.”
