Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, on Monday had expressed his support for President Buhari’s decision not to pay the promised N5,000 stipend to unemployed graduates due to a shift in his priorities.



The governor who spoke with State House correspondents after a private meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja said he doesn’t believe in empowerment with physical cash. He said that the money might create more problems them anyone could think of.

According to him, it could lead to marrying many of women as wives and increased intake of alcoholic drinks.

He said: “To be honest with you, it is a great idea, but there are many ways to give that support.

“Sometimes, it could be in cash which has its negative challenges. Handling of that is also in itself a wonderful and great idea.

“Take for instance, in Imo State now, they used to do what they called empowerment. They buy motorcycles and give people N5,000 or N10,000, for me that is not my style.

“My style is to declare free education, from primary, secondary to university. Nobody pays one naira in Imo State. The very poor people who have to endure a lot of social inconveniences to pay school fees are no longer doing that. What has happened is that they have saved that money to produce further wealth.”

Okorocha said it would have been a great idea to pay the money but that there were many other ways to redeem the pledge.

Though there is some sense in what he's saying, but how does getting 5,000 monthly encourage any man to get many women as wives? Anyone drink alcohol reach una? Abeg bros, talk something else...!

I wonder why some people talk like they don not take time to think first.
This would only be true if they were planning to pay the money to miscreants.
I, however, do not see the sense in saying someone who spent at least 19 years of their life to get an education would act that way (this is not saying there may not be a remote few who think this way).
If the governor really believes this then my argument on their behalf is that those that earn 50k - 500k and above would have finished all the booze and women in the state before the 5k earners get there.
Maybe the state would stop paying workers so that they don't spend all their money on women and booze.
