Gov Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has said that his genuine concern for the health of the citizens led him to concession the management of the hospitals “to stop the rot that has put the health sector in a comatose state”.
Commissioning the new management on Monday, the governor lamented that despite the huge amount of money invested in the health sector by the government, the sector had failed to live up to expectation.
He described the former workforce as “heartless and inconsiderate” and urged the new workers who owe their allegiance to the private company in the concessioning deal to live up to expectation to save their jobs.
Meanwhile, Gov. Okorocha has said that there has been a great turn-around in the West African School Certificate (WASC) and National Examination Council (NECO) exam results in the state since his administration revived the dignity of education in the state.
The governor said this at the education stakeholders forum held at the Imo Trade and Investments Centre, New Owerri, recently.
