I spend N10m every day to take care of my children – Okorocha

Nationwide News Politics
The former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, has said that he spends N10 million daily to take care of his children.
Okorocha stated this during an interview with the British Broadcasting Commission (BBC) News Pidgin when he was asked to comment on his forthcoming presidential election as well as why the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) pressed charges against him the day he declared his presidential ambition.
He said, “the fact that they charged me the day I declared my intention to run for presidency should mean something to you.
”The money they charged me is nothing because I spend N10 million every day to take care of my children and that’s roughly N400 million in a month.”
Okorocha explained that his children are the poor people in his state who he looks after.
He said, “when I was a governor, I engaged the youths and made sure the poverty rate was reduced which was why insecurity was not really affecting my administration.
”Hunger is what makes people think of carrying arms.”
