Governor Okorocha said:

“We will soon hand over the nation to you, where we have failed as your parents, you cannot afford to fail, you must all work hard to build the Nigeria of our collective dreams and aspirations. You must stand firm and never repeat the mistakes of your past leaders. Nigeria is on the path of greatness.”

Speaking on the issue of the current economic recession he said:

“In the past few years, nobody was talking about Agriculture, but oil. And today, Agriculture has become the unavoidable issue in the nation’s debate or discourse. All these point out the fact that the nation is moving to the fast lane of development and growth.”

“Whatever challenges the country is facing at the moment could not be said to be strange because all the big nations of the world we celebrate today had also passed through such challenges and even more traumatizing challenges.”
