Imo State governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has commiserated with
families of victims of the activities of the terror group known as
Boko Haram.
In a solidarity message personally signed by governor Okorocha on his
capacity as President, Nigeria Red Cross Society to mark the 2012
World Red Cross Day, he said “Though we live in a society that is
almost apprehensive of what tomorrow will bring forth as a result of
the high level of insecurity in our land occasioned by the activities
of a group of people who are hell-bent on unleashing terror on the
people in the name of religious extremism, we must encourage our
people especially our youths to embrace peace and non-violence as a
way of life and the way to go. Nigeria red cross Society uses this
auspicious occasion to commiserate with the families of scores of
innocent Nigerians who have lost their precious lives in the various
unfortunate incidents of terrorism that have jolted our nation
especially in the northern part of the country”.
Governor Okorocha urged the people to rise to the challenge of
bringing help and succor to all those who suffer any form of disaster
at any point in time whether natural or manmade. He also said ‘we must continue to strive to lend a helping hand to all
those around us who are in need. Our attention must go in the
direction of the weak, aged, sick, motherless, orphaned and
vulnerable. In this wise, our humanity must come to the fore and
become fully manifested. Let us all cultivate the culture of
humanitarianism and imbibe the philosophy of reaching out and touching
lives”
Governor Okorocha, who equally noted the significance of the theme of
this year’s celebration – “Youths on the Move”, however, urged young
Nigerians to join the Red Cross Movement and contribute their quota
towards making the world safer, better and more secure place to live.
