New Imo Commissioners swing into action

Barely two weeks of the inauguration of the Imo State Executive Council, two new commissioner, Chief (Mrs) Josephine Udoji (Works and Transport), and Barr Emma Ibediro (Local Govt and Rural Development), have swung into action.
Chief (Mrs) Udoji, on her inspection of the dualisation of Umuowa Owerri old road, and Njiaba new bridge along Orlu and Obohia-Akokwa road, warned that henceforth government would publish names of defaulting contractors who abandon road projects after collecting mobilization fees.
She decried the level of work on the Umuowa-Owerri old road as well as the dualization work at the Njaba bridge.
On his part, the commissioner for local government and Rural Development, Barr Ibediro also warned lazy local government staff to redress from their lack-luster attitude to work.
“If LGA is developed”, he explained, “it is from there that you can see the best. It is only when a mindset is re-oriented that people will queue into the state programme for development”.
He promised to further emphasize Governor Rocha’s Okorocha’s policy of industrializing the state and offering job opportunities to unemployed youth of Imo State.
In another development, Commissioner Udoji, while inspecting the Naze-Aba motor park in Owerri North Local Government area explained to the drivers the rationale  behind certain relocations of motor parks in the state.
She said she was impressed with what she saw at the newly designated Naze-Aba road motor park, and promised that her ministry would put the necessary facilities in the park and asked recalcitrant elements to go back to the government-designated parks.
