Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has said he was among Nigerians praying that the country’s oil wells dry up, so that Nigerians could have rest.
He made this statement while having an interactive session with Imo State members of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) at the council secretariat, on Port-Harcourt Road, Owerri, Imo State.
According to him, this would drastically reduce problems being encountered by the Federal Government and militants, particularly with the avengers that had continued to blow up oil pipelines in the Niger Delta region.
Chief Okorocha pointed out that this would assist the country greatly in the diversification of her economy to other mineral resources, mostly solid mineral and agriculture.
According to him, the quick rush of each tier of government sharing the monthly federal allocation would be drastically reduced, because there would be nothing left to share.
He warned the people of the state not to annoy him, so that he would continue to give them the free education already introduced by his administration when he assumed office as governor in 2011.
