The governor of Imo state, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, has boasted about his performance as Chief Executive Officer of the South-East state. In an interview with The Sun, the governor declared that he had scored 15 out of 10, in his performance so far.
NGM.com notes that Okorocha stated that he had touched all aspects of life in Imo state positively.
When asked to rate his performance as governor, he stated: “I think I have scored 15 over 10. You may be surprised I’m saying this, but you can ask me why and how.
“There’s no aspect of life in Imo State that I’ve not touched positively- infrastructure has been a lot better than what the state had, education is free from primary school to university, security is better, people now trust government unlike before, government is now closer to the people and so on. “I challenge any governor in this country, dead or alive to dare say they’d performed better than me.” The governor further disclosed that he had no challenges as he carried out his duties. In his words: “I don’t have any challenge, at least none that I know. This is so because before I became the governor, I’d expected much more problems than I found. “Remember I aspired to be the president and I’d pursued this ambition three times before I came back to become a governor.”
Meanwhile, NGM.com previously reported that the Association of General and Private Medical Practitioners of Nigeria (AGPMPN) urged the state House of Assembly to impeach the Imo state governor, Chief Rochas Okorocha.
The move by the association was in reaction to the closing down of all government health facilities and concessioning them to private ownership. According to AGPMPN, the grounds for this action is based on violations of public safety of Nigerians in accordance with Section 305 (2)(c) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
