Instead of taking violent approach, Okorocha, asked youths to wait till 2023 and vote out bad governance through an electoral process.

Okorocha who weeped said that this is not the state he governed for eight years and handed over in 2019.

He said that six serving governors could not attend the funeral rites because of the escalated insecurity in the state.

Okorocha said ” I want to appeal to the youth to stop venting their anger of bad governance by killing the Innocent citizens. This is not the Imo I used to know. This is not the Imo I was governor for, for eight years. I don’t support violence but I support protest through a proper channel. I urge you to wait till 2023 and use your PVC to vote out bad governance.
