The governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has vowed to do anything humanly possible to realize his dream of handing over to his inlaw, Uche Nwosu as the next governor of Imo state, 9News Nigeria has learned.
Okorocha said the mission to install Nwosu as his successor is a divine mandate that is worth any sacrifice, including his life and blood.
The governor made the remark on Monday at the Imo State government House during the swearing in of the new Secretary to the Government of the state, Mr Mark Uchendu, 9 permanent secretaries & others by the acting solicitor Ministry of Justice, Chinyere Ibeh who represented Attorney General of Imo State.
Okorocha said: “This administration will end stronger, let me tell you the remaining 7 months left for me I will do the same I did in 7 years in office.
“I will repair all the schools in the state, I am sorry for some of you who say that I have destroyed all the roads. It is because of the unprecedented rainfall. I wonder if the rains are acidic. I assure you that we will put them in order.
“I want to assure you that my people empowerment programme will kick off. It will start with the first names that will be submitted by the traditional rulers of our communities. My government is a government of the poor. I have come to save the lives of numerous poor Ndimo.
“We are going to begin to let our people know the projects we had done since the inception of this administration. What I am doing is to lay the foundation for any governor that will come into Imo state.
“When Uche Nwosu, becomes the governor, he will have no business building roads and developing the Owerri urban cities. Today, Uche Nwosu is the immediate past chief of staff, I pray that one day, I will shake you as the immediate past governor of Imo state.”
“If is a jinx that no governor can transmit power properly to his successor I will break the jinx.
“Udenwa did not and Ohakim did not. I will put my life and blood to see that I break that jinx. Anybody that cannot deliver his ward has no business to be here.
“If we cannot deliver Nwosu, then we have not done justice to the rescue mission. If you are a commissioner there is no need that you do not go to church in your area. We will go to the churches, villages to engage the opposition. We have the stories that can destroy what they are doing.”
