Imo: Ihedioha vows to step on toes as governor, gives reasons

The incoming Governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha has vowed to step on toes in the next four years.

Speaking during the Ahiajoku Lecture held at the Imo Trade and Investment Centre in Owerri, the state capital yesterday, Ihedioha said he would step on toes to ensure that the state worked.

He disclosed that he was set to move the state further than others in the country.

Ihedioha boasted that he has assembled technocrats to make sure he achieved the best in his time as governor.

According to Ihedioha: “Let me appreciate all of you for coming to this Ahiajoku Lecture and I want to also thank you for accepting our message of rebuilding Imo State.

“This is not a day for me to make a speech. On Wednesday (today), when I will be sworn in, I will speak to Imo people. I want you to believe that Imo State must work.

“Let me say, we have assembled technocrats and our reason is to make Imo great again.

“Two days ago, the Technical Transition Committee we set up submitted its work and I have not had time to digest all of them. But I must tell you that its work is insightful.

“Let me tell you, in our agenda of rebuilding Imo State, we shall restore sanity and order. We need your prayers to move forward to make Imo better.

“I will step on toes just to get our state right. By nature, I can be a bit impatient. We want to move our state faster than other states. We will remain focused in this government.”
