Okorocha advocates power devolution

GOVERNOR Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, weekend, advocated for what he termed “systematic devolution of power in Nigeria where the enormous power at
the centre is decentralized to the state and local governments.”
Okorocha, who spoke in Owerri, while addressing board members of the Nigerian Media Merit Award, NMMA, contended that it would help to create
sustainable economic development at the grassroots.
According to him, devolution of power was the solution to the alarming poverty in Nigeria, noting that the country’s political authority was highly concentrated on an individual solely determining the survival or death of millions of Nigerians.
