Newly sworn-in governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha has vowed to endure the continuation of his administration’s policy of free education at all levels despite the obvious dwindling monthly revenue allocations to the state.
The governor reiterated the promise yesterday during his speech at the swearing in ceremony and 2015 Democracy Day celebration held at Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri.
Governor Okorocha who took oath of office for his second term in office, reaffirmed that education remains the greatest industry in the state and must remain in the front burner of his administration’s policy of industry, job, factor and employment.
He debunked claims in certain quarters that he would scrap free education pointing put that people of the state would appreciate the benefits of the policy long after he had left office.
The governor who was full of praises for people of the state for their spirit of commitment and sacrifice in the past four years promised not to disappoint them in his second term.
He however revealed that hard times awaits those who are in the habit of disobeying government directives on street trading, touting and illegal motor park operations.
On the issue of local government elections, Owelle Okorocha promised to conduct the poll as soon as the legal tussle over the issue was over.
The governor who posited that he believes in the decentralisation of power assured Imolites of better days ahead as his administration has concluded plans to bring foreign investors from Turkey, China and India to the state.
