Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo says he picked his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, to succeed him, in order to consolidate on his achievements.
The governor made the disclosure in a statement released by his chief press secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, The Sun reports.
Legit.ng gathers that Okorocha outlined his free and qualitative education programme as one of his landmark achievements.
He said the programme had produced remarkable results; pointing out that Imo state has continued to lead in JAMB applications for the seventh time and that the state has also continued to do well in West African Examination Council (WAEC) exams.
He added that his administration has more than 1,000 verifiable projects to its credit, and challenged his critics to disprove him.
Onwuemeodo said: “We have also been claiming and indeed, truthfully, that what Governor Okorocha’s administration has achieved in less than eight years have gone beyond all that those who had governed the state before him had achieved, when you put them together. Nobody has also challenged us or tried to fault our claims.
“We have equally gone the extra-mile to say that anybody who feels that he has a contrary claim to ours should indicate.
“And the best way to deal with such claims and counter-claims is for those concerned to itemise their claims, publish them for public consumption, while we also publish ours for comparative analysis.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Governor Rochas Okorocha said that the people of the state would miss his presence as governor when he hands over to his successor in 2019.
Okorocha said he had done enough for the people of the state and was sure they would miss him when he leaves office.
