Nshirim, who went around the state during the yuletide period lamented the information seeking behaviour of the Igbo people.

He said, “While others were enjoying their Christmas, I was moving around because it is my duty as information commissioner to know how far I have informed the people as well as to get feedback from them.

“In what could be described as a shocking experience while going around, I discovered to my horror that our people are not informed.

“70 percent of Igbo do not listen to news, they do not read newspapers. We say we are intelligent, we say we are informed but that Hausa boy that cleans your shoe has a radio in his pocket.”
