We have witnessed the execution of many projects spanning through road construction networks and beautification of our urban centers. You have opened up the rural areas through your unprecedented revolutionary rural road rehabilitation and construction. Owerri, Okigwe and Orlu townships have also witnessed total transformation. New buildings are springing up here and there and you have relentlessly pursued the concept of Free Education with unbelievable vigor and vitality. Therefore, permit us to state here without that what you have done in twenty- two (22) months far surpassed what some of your predecessors were unable to accomplish in a whole tenure of four(4) years. This is true”.
The workers also lauded the free education programme of the governor which runs to the tertiary level, stating that by the programme, which is the first of its kind in the country, Gov. Okorocha has beyond doubt demonstrated his strong believe in the power of education to better the life of a man.
