Imo State Governor, Emeka Ihedioha, has said that his administration is taking deliberate steps to redesign the infrastructure of the state.
The governor who spoke at a meeting with traditional rulers in the state in Owerri, said the state government will leverage on federal government’s developmental policies to rebuild the state’s infrastructure.
He noted that he has prevailed on relevant authorities to trigger action on the ongoing construction of power stations at Ibeku Mbaise and Ideato nation, to boost power supply in the state.
He said that the projects were now set for completion in December.
The Imo Chief Executive equally stated that immediate palliative measures were being undertaken to fix the impassable portions of the Owerri-Okigwe and Owerri-Umuahia roads, even as he promised that contracts to reconstruct and dualize them will be awarded.
Gov. Ihedioha reiterated his government’s resolve to provide portable water for residents in the state. He announced that mechanism was already in place to revive the Otamiri water scheme.
The governor who averred that the entire design of Owerri, the state capital, was in tatters, said that he will not be in a hurry to start projects that he cannot complete.
“I inherited a state where many things had gone wrong. The entire design of Owerri is in tatters, and that is why I am here to rebuild the state.
“We will continue every good project and programme initiated by the last administration and we will not be in a hurry to start projects that we cannot complete”, he said.
