Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has described the state as the `fastest developing state’ in Nigeria, following the conservative lifestyle of his economic team and the unconventional style of administration he adopted.

Okorocha made the disclosure in a statement signed and issued to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Owerri on Friday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Sam Onwuemeodo.

He said Imo was able to achieve the feat through sacrifice and prudence especially in handling public fund.

“I was able to fund such projects following my unconventional style of administration that has blocked all financial leakages,” the statement quoted the governor as saying.

Okorocha noted that the state has not borrowed any money to execute any ongoing project since he came into office.

“I have not borrowed any money; neither is Imo owing any bank or institution.

“I am using the state fund to execute all my projects for the state especially the new urban renewal program.

“Those people carrying rumours that the state is hugely indebted to new generation banks are either not well informed or enemies of progress.

“Upon completion of the massive infrastructural developmental stride of this administration, the incoming governors will have less work to do for the state.

“I am laying a solid foundation for the future and I have cut off all means of embezzlement.

“This bold step has enabled me to achieve what I am doing today,’’ he said.
