Hausas are more informed, 70% of Igbos don’t read newspapers, listen to radio — Okorocha
Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, has said ”70% of Ndigbo do not listen to news and do not read newspapers.” He stated this on Imo Broadcasting Corporation, IBC, Owerri, through his Commissioner for Information, Obinna Nshirim.
”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.
I discovered to, my horror, that our people are not informed. 70% 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.”
