Imo State Govt Says 70% Of Ndigbo Don’t Read Newspapers Or Listen To Radio

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, yesterday, said ”70 per cent of Ndigbo do not listen to news and do not read newspapers.” 




Okorocha stated this on Imo Broadcasting Corporation, IBC, Owerri, through his Commissioner for Information, Tourism and Public Utilities, Obinna Nshirim. Nshirim made this remark as part of what he “discovered” during the yuletide.


 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.” While criticizing those who did not believe in the free education policy of the government, he also blamed churches for using the newspapers to “play down the beauty of government.” He said: ”I do not know what has come upon our churches. I think a man of God should acknowledge virtue and hit hard on vices. 


Thats what makes him a man of God.” Nshirim did not mention the name of the newspaper, neither did he mention the name of any clergyman against Okorocha’s government. On the issue of payment of pensioners in the state, Chief Jude Ugboaja, who called to contribute to the radio programme, raised what best could be described as a vital issue, as it affected pensioners in the state. 


While presenting his opinion, he said: ”I discovered that some of these pensioners that have been paid are now saying that most of their pension arrears were not effectively calculated. “Somehow, they were shortchanged. I want to suggest that the state government sets up an enquiry to actually find out whether those who are doing this, are doing it deliberately.”

  2. Everybody just want to use Igbos to shine.If this man is correct, how come a research by the US govt concluded that Igbos are the most intelligent black African race on earth?

    1. Igbos most intelligent? I doubt that research,if its cunny maybe yes! I consider the Yorubas most intelligent. Igbos just want to make money by hook or by crook. Of course okorocha is right the hausas are the most informed with that their small radio they carry about.

  9. Okorohausa is a fool, worst thing to ever happen to imo state, Mr commissioner u didn't explain exactly the feedback u were expecting to get from them, how did u get to the conclusion that they don't read or listen to radio. The first thing I notice when I travel to the village and visit relations is them listening to radio, he may be right about reading coz they don't really have access to papers, so he shut the fuck up. He is even comparing hausa and igbo, why don't you go and govern them, ewuhausa.

    So the church should not voice out your wrong doings coz your what? Are you scared of mentioning names? Talk na make u receive another invisible slap, anuofia.

  19. They prefer watching telemundo instead of watching news and know what's going on within their locality and the world at large.

    Aboki shoe shiner is better than some educated fellow, he moves around with his small transistor radio to listen to BBC Hausa and he's well informed.

  30. It shows from the ignorant comments I read on this blog.
    The likes of Eka Joy, Ideato, Mummy Sandy Nekky , Queen of bus. So ignorant and backwards in their thinking. Always ready to fight and can't argue constructively to say the least.
    Those who make sense like Dopple and a few others, comment without using abusive words I know they cannot be Igbo.

  31. I am not igbo... But it's sad that an igbo man is shaming his fellow igbos this way. Does reading newspapers and listening to radio make one enlightened? Igbos are actually making waves all over d world in all spheres of life through their intelligence and brilliance. So because an aboki shoemender is always listening to hausabbc, does that make him enlightened n how does such enlightenment impact positively on him and others?
