The governor also reasoned that a rule can be bent to archive ones target in the society.

In the statement, Okorocha said: “Governor Rochas Okorocha has said that one of the nation’s major problems is bureaucracy or protocol, stating that bureaucracy has killed most of the nation’s good initiatives and has kept the nation in perpetual bondage.

“Sometimes therefore if you need to succeed, you must bend the rule but don’t break it to enable you achieve your goal. The trend has done a lot of harm to the system and has drawn the nation backward to a very large extent.

“I’m told that you have been round the whole City to see for yourselves what Owerri looks like. And being in a School, I’m sure you are here to further acquire knowledge and see how things are done

“And how progress is made in a very given institution and if I had enough time, it could have been my pleasure to give a lecture as to what you must do in life to prove leadership in whatever form or in whatever place you find yourselves.”

In his remark, General Duru, said: “We are in Imo state for research and we have also seen the exciting business potentials in the state, at various locations and will report back on the areas where it will benefit the military in Nigeria at large.”
