Why elites did not support my govt -Gov Okorocha

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State  has said that the elite in the state did not support him when he became governor about five years ago because of their perception that he would not compromise.
The governor was speaking while swearing in 12 newly-appointed commissioners and 27 transition committee chairmen of local governments.
He expressed his commitment to do things orderly, noting that the state is divinely favoured in 2016.
The governor, however, charged the new appointees to tighten their belts due to the global economic meltdown.
He enumerated his achievements so far and said that the new appointees were his foot soldiers that will move the state which clocks 40 in February 3, forward.
The 12 commissioners made up of nine men and three women, were Mr. Law Eburo, Ministry of Lands and Housing, Barr. Ngozi Njoku, Ministry of Health, Mrs. Gertrude Oduka, Ministry of Education, Chief Vitalis Ajumbe, Internal Resources and Pension Matters, Mrs. Josephine Udoji, Works and Transports, Chief Udo Aguoha – Agriculture and Natural Resources while Barr. L.O. Nlemedum sworn-in as the State Attorney General.
Others are Engr. Chidi Ibe – Information, Youth and Sports, Barr. Obinna Mbata – Finance, Barr. Ifeanyi Godwin Ararume, Commerce, Industry and Tourism, Hon. Innocent Ekeh, Community Government and Cultural Affairs Ministry and Mr. Emmanuel Ezebuiro, Local Government and Rural Development Ministry.
