Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state has set out to establish a college in Bauchi State in a quest to carry out his mission which include; to continue the furtherance of education in the country and to help poor Nigerians in Bauchi acquire quality education.
The governor made the pledge to build a college, at the ceremony marking part of the celebrations for the 40th anniversary of the creation of Imo State.
A certificate of occupancy has been issued to Okorocha by the governor of Bauchi State, Mohammed Abubakar, to quicken the actualization of the project. According to Abubakar, investment in education was the best way to produce good leaders of tomorrow.
During the ceremony, members of the cabinet of the Imo state governor gave account of their performance during their five years in service.
Okorocha reminded his colleagues in the 36 states of the federation that it is a privilege to be elected to serve the people and so they should strive to leave good legacies for the electorate. He said:
“I am here for the glory of the job and I am poised to change the sordid history of the people and for any governor or president to succeed in office, he must think outside the box.”
The governor reiterated his resolution to move the state forward and urged Nigeria to have hope for a better tomorrow just as their leaders must have positive visions for a greater Nigeria.
Speaking earlier, the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun hailed Governor Okorocha for his performance and urged the people of Imo to continue to support the governor with his projects.
Meanwhile, Okorocha has stressed that it was never in his agenda to contest for Nigeria’s President in 2019. He said this to avert any misconstrue on his good will towards Nigerians.
