My foundation is a spiritual agreement with God, says the governor Okorocha

Okorocha My foundation is a spiritual agreement with God, says the governor
He said the foundation was part of its commitment to contribute to the future of African children.

The Governor of Imo, Rochas Okorocha, stated that the founding of the Rochas Foundation College of Africa is a fulfillment of his promise to God to help others when he is blessed.

He revealed it during the trip of Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf to the Owerri Foundation on Friday, November 10, 2017.
The governor said when he founded the foundation decades ago, many people misunderstood his intentions to do it for politics, but that was part of his commitment to making a contribution to the future of African children. ,

He said, "When I founded this foundation 20 years ago, it was a miracle: this foundation started with Jos in a mosque and I went to this mosque every Friday to help the children, needing what you call beggars.

"As we continued to move there, the population continued to increase and we decided that instead of just providing them with food, support and money, we now have schools for them.
"Today we are proud that there are 10 Rochas Foundation Colleges across the country, with more than 15,000 children, 75% of whom are orphans, and this is a qualification that will allow you to come to this school, in other words, if you do not have somebody who could help you.


"I remember my first school at the Rochas Foundation in Owerri, and in Kano Jos and the rest many did not understand where I came from and most people misunderstand the whole intent, because it was the first time hearing someone who was free to educate without counting the cost of the return. I did not believe it.

"People tried to link this whole tour 20 years ago to make politics, and some people could attribute it to the clever way of creating a picture for themselves, but they do not understand that the Rochas Foundation is a spiritual contract between me and my creator when I swear to God bless me, I will bless others, if I respect, others will appreciate, if he educates me, I will educate others because I can do nothing except I can do all through God who gives me strength.
"It was spiritual and contracted with God, and it was an oath that I remembered not to go to school if God's grace did not come to my head.

"I was not orphaned, but it was difficult to finish a meeting with 12 children of two poor parents whose total capital does not amount to $ 10 in their business, so I know what to do, I know what's left to stay all day without food and I know what to stay wanting to go in school and help will not come from anywhere. That was my concern, and that was my oath I took.


"So what I am doing today is not a dramatization of enthusiasm. Definitely not the richest African country, the richest foundation is the victim dramatization for less privileged and those who would not go to school.

"So today, we have decided five children every year from each of the African countries. Liberia today has five, and next year we expect five more from Liberia and many African countries."
Speaking to governor, President Johnson-Sirleaf praised him for his miraculous initiative and sacrifice that will definitely rewrite the future of many African children.
After her speech, she was on a tour around the foundation to see where the students learned.
