Governor Rochas Okorocha Best of Intentions

Rochas rural market scheme launched in Lagos

At first glance this project appears to be a source of relief and encouragement for the residence of Lagos state. When one begins to scratch the surface, however, the truth begins to emerge and the intentions appear to be a bit or total flawed. While the intentions of the Governor Rochas Okorocha seem noteworthy, they are definitely not genuine. He has built this program to help the less fortunate but has implemented it in the wrong demographic. Why is he doing this outside of Imo state his governing territory where he was elected in 2011? He has not implemented this program in his home area Imo state. A very legitimate question may be "What are his intentions?" I believe this action is less about service to others and more about building his political profile. I believe that he has his sites set on something which is why he implemented the program. Who is really financing this project? Governor Rochas Okorocha motivation overshadows the good intentions of the program. Please implement this program in your own territory! Governor Rochas Okorocha does not understand that "charity begins at home".
