Speak English In Public And Be Dethroned” – Gov. Rochas Warns Traditional Rulers
The English language may be Nigeria’s
lingua franca, but in Imo State, South East
Nigeria under Rochas Okorocha, speaking
English in public is the surest way for a
traditional ruler to be dethroned.
Henceforth, according to the Imo State
Governor Rochas Okorocha, any Imo State
monarch, who speaks English in any public
forum in the state, risks losing his
traditional stool. He said this in Owerri, the
state capital last week, while inaugurating
the state’s Imo Traditional Rulers Parliament
and Community Government Council.
