Part of our administration’s cardinal agenda is to ensure that the dividends of democracy will be evenly distributed across the 27 Local Government Areas of our dear state.
For us all, Imo belongs to Imo people and geographical divisions have nothing to do with our unity as a people.
The process of getting to this point was transparent and followed due process. We did all these to ensure not just quality assurance but value for money.
He charged the contractors handling the projects to deliver to specifications and guarantee their durability, as our administration is very much committed to providing durable projects that will stand the test of time.
We have also begun discussion with the Federal Government for the federal roads including Owerri/ Orlu/ Akokwa Road.
By the grace of God, we shall build the Imo our future generations will be proud of.
