The Youths Against Human Rights Violations and Corrupt Practices [YAHVCP] is sad to note that In the midst of abundant human and natural resources, the vast majority of Imo working masses and the youths live in abject poverty. It is no secret to us that the politician responsible for this embarrassing state of absurdity in Imo State is the “profit first” capitalist political vampire and International Thief-Thief Governor of Imo State Chief Rochas Okorocha.

YAHVCP is sad that despite enormous human and material potentials, Imolites’s crisis of poverty in the midst of plenty continues apace. Vicious attacks on living conditions, wages and social services have reduced the mass majority to a state of perpetual misery. According to statistics, about 70% of Ndi-Imo exist on less than one dollar per day. The capitalist anti poor, anti peoples Governor of Imo State(Owelle) continues to loot the collective wealth of Imo without remorse.

Apart from the direct pilfering of the public treasury, the flip side of this corruption is that Okorocha sold public corporations and utilities such as ITC, Adapalm, Concord Hotel and Imo Municipal Company to himself in the name of privatization as well as the doling out of public resources to his cronies. But what cannot be disputed is the fact that the high profile corruption of Okorocha has compounded the problems of the working peoples who while earning poverty wages are rendered jobless or under-employed have to contend with ever rising costs of living.

YAHVCP is concerned that if nothing is done and urgently too, Imo state may be heading to total collapse. Governor Rochas Okorocha must be shown the way out in 2015 before he will finally mortgages the future of our unborn children through his abracadabra. Below are 114 reasons way Owelle Rochas Okorocha must go. We must Save Imo Now

No development in any of the 27 Local Government Areas of Imo State since he came in to power.No Hospitals, Schools, Markets, bore holes for water or any rural electrifications etc in any autonomous community in Imo State in over three years of the life of this administration.
