Injustice, a failing family system responsible for insecurity, according to Okorocha | The Guardian Nigeria News


Former Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha attributed the growing insecurity in the country to the injustice and failure of the family system caused by politicians’ indifference to the role of women in nation building.

Okorocha said that for Nigeria to step back from current security and economic challenges, women must be empowered and supported in governance and policy making.

According to Senator representing Imo West, the collapse of family values ​​and the system has given rise to insurgency, banditry and youth unrest, adding that a safe and prosperous society begins with the home.

The former governor, who spoke while receiving an award of excellence from the United Business Women Association of Nigeria and Diaspora, noted that women have a critical role to play in the country’s security by having an impact on children’s moral and family values.

In his words: “A woman is a special creation of God. Women are givers and custodians of life. Nations that ignore their wives are seen as failing nations while nations that make good use of their wives are called developed nations. So if Nigeria is to rise up then we have to turn around and look at the women. If we don’t take the women, we’re going to have very serious problems.

Okorocha added that “if a nation is to do it right, it has to start with the family. It was the bad family system we have today that gave rise to the insurgency and other crimes in the country.

No sane woman who gives birth to a child will allow the child to go astray.

“The problem is, we haven’t taken care of women and we haven’t empowered women. Everything you give a woman is what you get in return. While we men have succeeded in dividing this country along religious and ethnic lines, women have remained a uniting force. As long as we have not given the women of the house the means to give us a good family, as long as our politicians continue on the path of injustice, of insurrection, of kidnappings will never stop ”.

Meanwhile, during the presentation of the award, the president of the association, Ms Nkiruka Madu, said that the former governor had been selected for the award because of his philanthropy, in particular the empowerment of women and the free education for needy children across the country.
