OWERRI—IMO State Governor, Chief Rochas Okorocha, yesterday warned that he would not hesitate to sack any member of the State Executive Council that fell short of expectation.
Okorocha, who read the riot act while swearing-in the new commissioners, also said his administration was in a hurry to deliver dividends of democracy to the citizenry.
“We are in a rescue mission. There is no room for procrastination. Your personal interest should not overshadow the collective interest of Imo people”, Okorocha warned.
While reminding the new commissioners that there was no room for corruption and laziness in the administration, the Governor declared that “any public office holder found wanting in this regard will be shown the way out.”
It was the considered opinion of the Governor that the new appointees should make the best of the opportunity as they may not get the chance again.
It will be recalled that Mr. Chinedu Offor, Lady Ugochi Nnanna Okoro and Mr. Uche Mbanaso were assigned to the Ministries of Information and Strategy, Culture and Tourism and Commerce and Industries respectively.
The rest are Emma Ekweremba, Petroleum and Energy, Professor Chima Iwuchukwu, Public Utilities and Rural Development and Dr. Charles Onuoha, Housing.
