Governor Rochas

Sen. Rochas Okorocha has commended the Federal Government on closure of land borders, saying the measure would motivate Nigerians to look inwards on better ways to feed themselves.

Okorocha made the remark while answering questions from newsmen at the Government House, Kano on Saturday.

Okorocha, immediate past governor of Imo state, said the federal government needed to do more in monitoring smuggling of goods through illegal borders.

He noted that it was a hard task as it entailed manning the bushes around neighboring countries, because the country had more than 3,000 entry points.

Okorocha also ‎called for a new approach and style in the fight against crime and criminality in the country.‎

He said it was time for the federal government to evolve new ideas ‎in curbing crime in the country as the security challenges in the country had taken different dimensions.
