The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has admonished the Nigerian youths to be visionaries, saying lack of vision brings poverty, and the worst kind, is poverty of the mind.
Okorocha said this in a statement through his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Sam Onwuemeodo, while declaring the first Imo Youth Annual lecture series, held in Owerri, open.
“Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has said that the difference between the rich and the poor is information and then told the youths in the Country, since information is key to success, they should therefore develop an appetite for information.
“As the future of this great Country and State, you must rise to convert your potentials into action. Arouse your kinetic energy and see results of what you can do or become in the near future.
“To do this, the very key is information. There is no difference between the rich and the poor but information. Make friends with somebody you can call Sir. Seek transfer of knowledge rather than seeking for money, because money can finish but knowledge is always there.
“You are created with something deposited right inside of you and never fail nature that expected you to rise to fulfill your dreams. So you must not fail creation. Lack of vision brings poverty and the worst poverty is poverty of the mind. You must set lofty and achievable goals for yourselves.”
