Owelle Rochas Okorocha is sparking up hope in Imo State

Filed under: National Issues |

The emergence of Owelle Rochas Okorocha as the governor of Imo State (on 29 May, 2011) raised uncountable questions in the minds of top politicians, as well as the ordinary people of the State. There’s (Imo State indigenes) was whether Rochas can turn the table around and make a better governor or he will toe the line of his predecessor, Ikedi Ohakim.

Like many of you out there, i’ve always wondered if the people of Imo State will one day get a taste of what Lagos State governor, Babaraji Fashola gave to Lagosians. From Ndubuisi Kanu who took office in 1976 as the first governor of Imo State to Achike Udenwa(29 May, 1999) who caged the finance of the State to himself, and to Ikedi Ohakim(29 May, 2007) whose achievements is flogging of clergy men and destroying the green color of the State by elevating corruption, the story has remained unchanged and not a good one to be told to the ears. Roads in Imo State has always been in very bad shape, unemployment was visible in every home, the presence of corruption was remarkable, schools were like mushroom houses and those with good structure has poor facilities and many other vices.

Today, the story is changing. Things are taking a new turn; Dead industries in there categories have begin to come to life; Free education is on the go; News have begin to go round and life, have returned back to the people of the State.

In as much as this improvements are coming in, i hope they last. I hope that saboteurs will not be a stopper of these awesomeness, re-establishment of faith and connection back with the people?

Listen to Owelle Rochas Okorocha, as he address his people!
