Okorocha reacts to release of schoolgirls by Boko Haram

The Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has reacted to the return of 104 Dapchi schoolgirls.

The girls were released by Boko Haram barely 30 days after their abduction.

Okorocha pointed out that President Muhammadu Buhari has displayed strong political wil, adding that how a leader responds to situations goes a long way to show his weakness or strength.

The Governor said since Buhari came on board, he has continued to show that action speaks louder than words.

His reaction was contained in a terse statement made available to newsmen in Owerri, the state capital. by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo.

The statement said, “Even the way and manner the President led the nation out of recession without allowing the development to linger was a clear indication of strong leadership and that is the reason the nation or Nigerians should continue to support him to fully stabilize the polity.”

He further noted that “if the previous leadership had equally put into play, that level of needed political will or strong leadership, the lengthy story of the Chibok girls would have perhaps, been shortened”.
