Rochas Okorocha Makes 305 Youth Millionaires by OrientDailyNews: 6:05pm On Jul 22, 2017
By Olisemeka Sony

Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has em­powered 305 youths from the 305 wards across the 27 local government areas of the state with the sum of One Million Naira (N1 million) each, instantly transforming them into millionaires.

“I declare myself the grand patron of all the Youth Million­aires”, Governor Okorocha de­clared during a brief cheque-hand-over ceremony at the government house in Owerri on Thursday, July 13.

According to him, the ‘One Million Naira’ largesse was to encourage the youths to suc­ceed and begin to contribute to the progress and prosperity of the state and the country. He assured the beneficiaries of his assistance towards making sure that they prosper in their business endeavors.

“Henceforth if you encounter problems in running your var­ious businesses you should feel free to consult me by channeling your difficulties through the Chief of Staff. My dream is to make sure that in the next one year your story will change for better”, he told the elated youth millionaires.


Okorocha, according to a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwue­meodo, disclosed that the ges­ture was in line with his dream to reduce the poverty rate in the state to 5percent from the current 14percent.

The governor gave a brief outline of his administration’s efforts to uplift the poor in the state: “We have employed ten young graduates from each of the 305 wards totaling 3050. We have empowered ten women in each of the wards with N100,000 also totaling N305million. And today, we have given One Million Naira each to 305 youths. Those in school are enjoying our free education programme. We are determined to give poverty a deadly blow in the state”.

Responding on behalf of the beneficiaries, Mr. Ashankeo­nye Obioma Francis pledged the allegiance and support to the governor and his develop­ment efforts in the state, assur­ing that they would succeed in whatever venture they use the money for.

Stop saying what you are not sure of. He actually gave one million naira each to 305 youths in the state.
What do you even benefit from all these media blackmail against Rochas?

This is magnanimous from owelle.this is what governors should be doing,sharing our commonwealth together not them embezzling them in the name of phoney projects and useless skill acquisition/empowerment schemes.i wonder why imolites hate rochas upon all the goodies hes doing unlike other governors.i think he should do more by sharing more money to thousands of imolites instead of amassing the wealth alone.up apc,up owelle

He is an un-wise governor he should have used the 305 million naira to build industries/companies all around imo state which would take unemployed youths out of the street

If it was in Anambra, Obiano would have signed an MOU to empower 305 youths.

Obiano can sign MOU with the dead!
