The governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, has said that the people of the state would miss his presence as governor when he hands over to his successor in 2019.
Okorocha said he has done enough for the people of the state and was sure they would miss him when he is gone.
He said with the over 1,000 verifiable projects of the Rescue Mission Government in the state to his credit, Imo people will definitely look back with admiration at his years in office.
Daily Trust reports that Okorocha said he had repositioned Imo state for good after the purchase of all the assets sold by previous administrations.
In a statement signed by his chief press secretary, Sam Onwuemedo, the governor said: “The free education programme in the State which some opponents of the government had tried to discredit when it was introduced has yielded obvious remarkable results.”
“And aside the School enrolment in the state snow ballng from 381,000 in 2011 to more than One million in 2017, the State has continued to lead in JAMB applications for the Seventh time now.
“The State has also continued to do very well in WAEC Exams. For instance, in the 2018 Senior School Certificate Exam (SSCE), the State came fifth out of the Thirty-Six States in the Country and the Federal Capital Territory,”Okorocha said.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that Okorocha had accused the people of the state of clamouring for an unwritten zoning principle to be adopted concerning who emerges in 2019.
The allegation by the governor followed agitations for the governorship seat to be zoned to Owerri,
However, Okorocha described the agitators as educated illiterates, uniformed and clanish stating that those calling for zoning do not have the capacity to govern.
