Okorocha restates vow to transform Imo

Imo state governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has reinstated his vow to place Imo in the map of the fastest developing states by executing only people-oriented programmes.

He also promised to complete several on-going infrastructural projects in the state before the expiration of his tenure so as to transform Imo into a model state.

Governor Okorocha who was speaking at the Holy Trinity Catholic cathedral, Orlu during a thanksgiving Mass in honour of his golden Jubilee celebration and 10th year anniversary of Rochas Foundation

College, averred that the present administration will be adjudged the best in the history of Imo owing to the massive infrastructural projects and well-thought-out programmes embarked upon by his

government.

While he maintained that the era of sharing public funds with godfathers has come to an end, governor Okorocha however urged Imolites to always give him the necessary support to enable him deliver more on his electoral promises.

Governor Okorocha who expressed gratitude to God for attaining the age of 50, added that he would continue to touch the lives of the poor and less-privileged in the society.

He explained that his decision to celebrate his 50th birthday and 10th year anniversary of Rochas Foundation with over 6,000 students from Rochas Foundation college, Owerri and Ogboko in Ideato LGA, Imo State, Ibadan Oyo State, Kano and Jos Plateau state, is to prove to the world that the foundation was not established to score political points, rather to give hope to the hopeless as well as offer free education to those that can’t afford it.

“I am the most misunderstood person perhaps owing to the way I do my things.  When I established Rochas Foundation 10 years ago, some people concluded that it was meant for politics, but today, we have over 6,000 students in 5 colleges all over Nigeria.  As I am speaking, we are graduating 1,636 students this year and of course some of our students have graduated from the universities.  This is why I have always said that I am the richest man on earth” Governor Okorocha said.
