Governor Emeka Ihedioha of Imo State has again claimed that he inherited a state that was in ruins from his predecessor, Rochas Okorocha.
Ihedioha said he had “awarded 25 road contracts for over N40bn” since he became governor.
The governor said he had been operating from his private residence since he became governor because his predecessor left the Government House in ruins.
Ihedioha said, “I inherited an epileptic government. What I saw on assumption of office was worse than what I imagined when we were campaigning.
We inherited a state with huge infrastructural and institutional decay, but we have restored confidence in the governance of our state. We have awarded 25 road contracts in five months of our administration. Imo people now have a governor they can be proud of.”
