Imo State Governor-elect, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, has again promised to run an all-inclusive and transparent government in the state.

Ihedioha made the promise at a press conference in Owerri, the state capital, on Wednesday.

He said, “I will put Imo back to life. We shall get Imo working again. We will get the system functioning and running again.

“We shall reintroduce in our state, a deliberate administration and by the grace of God, get back to the basics and revive our cultural heritage to give meaning to life.

“We shall revive our ethical system and reinvigorate our infrastructure.

“I can assure you that Imo people made the right choice and we will prove it in the coming months.”

Ihedioha promised that under his watch, the state would be united.

He also promised to work with the governorship candidates of other political parties because of his belief that they have ideas that will benefit the state.

“We shall work together for the benefit of Imo State. I will make efforts to invite and incorporate them in my government.

“I believe anyone who has anything to offer to our state is welcomed, irrespective of party affiliation,” he added.

The governor-elect regretted that the state had not benefited from good governance for a long time.

On the focus of his administration, Ihedioha said, “We are going to look at institutional and infrastructural development.

“Fundamentally, we are going to look at areas of job and wealth creation which will define our future.

“We shall respect the rule of law, revive the public and civil service sectors, with deliberate attention to education and health care delivery system.

“Agriculture will be a major stakeholding sector in our economy and we will take advantage of the fact that Imo is an oil-producing state with huge gas reserve that will reinvigorate our development in several areas.”
