By Laleye Dipo in Minna

Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, has said that his Imo State counterpart, Rochas Okorocha, believes in and works diligently to achieve oneness and peace in Nigeria.

Bello also said that the Imo State governor “is a lover of education and a philanthropist per excellence”.

The remarks were contained in a 55th birthday message the Niger State governor sent to his colleague in which he also praised the leadership role of Okorocha as the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governors Forum.

In the message signed on behalf of the governor by his Chief Press Secretary Jibrin Ndace, the Imo State governor was also described as “as a strong pillar in the struggle for a united and indivisible Nigeria”, adding that Okorocha “has contributed immensely to the ongoing quest for national unity and progress.”

“Okorocha is a dependable arrow head and efficient trouble shooter in the ongoing agitation for the disintegration of the country by some elements in the country,” Bello said in the message.
