Mrs Nkechi Okoro­cha accuses wealthy Nigerians of insensitivity

Mrs. NKECHI OKOROCHAThe wife of Imo State Gov­ernor, Mrs Nkechi Okoro­cha, has criticised what she described as the culture of primitive accumu­lation of wealth by some Nigerians and urged such in­dividuals to extend their resources to the needy.
Mrs Okorocha said this when she inaugurated and handed over fur­nished two-bed­room bungalows built under her pet project to three in­digent widows in Owerri on Thurs­day 7th July, 2016.
She noted that some families wal­low in abject pov­erty due to situa­tions beyond their control.
The agony of such families, she said could be alleviated with the support of corporate bod­ies, institutions, organisations and well-meaning Ni­gerians.
She said that al­though shelter is an essential ingredient of life, it was re­grettable that some families did not have a roof over their heads.
“What is the purpose of life if we cannot be our brother’s keepers by using the little we have to touch their lives and put smiles on their fac­es?” she asked.
The governor’s wife advised wid­ows yet to benefit from the gesture to be patient, assuring that equity, justice and fairness would continue to be ap­plied in giving out the house.
