Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha says he has fulfilled about 90 per cent of the campaign promises made to the people of the state.

Okorocha made the disclosure when he received the management of the Sun Publishing Company led by the Managing Director/Editor-in-Chief, Mr Eric Osagie, at his Spitbat Owerri residence on Tuesday.

“My administration has already fulfilled about 90 per cent of my campaign promises which includes building of 27 new general hospitals in each of the 27 local governments, free education at all levels, and infrastructural development.

“We have also embarked on urban renewal and as well making effort to address problem of power which will help in the industrialisation of the state,’’ he said.

Okorocha noted that he was particularly happy with the role of media in disseminating the right information to the people, which according to him, led to his administration recording success story

“I am particularly thankful to the Sun newspaper because the media giant has effectively given voice to not only Imo people, both the South-East geopolitical zone and the entire country,’’ he said.

Okorocha said that the media house through its coverage had equally helped to sustain democracy in Nigeria and assured continued partnership with the company.

Earlier, Osagie said that the management team were on the tour of the South-East zone and expressed the company’s gratitude to Imo people for their patronage over the years.

“We are essentially here for two reasons; first to express our depth of gratitude for the support you have given to us for these years and as Oliver Twist to ask for continued partnership with us,” he said.

He assured that the company would continue to support the state government’s quest to transform the state.

    If it is true, then the man most be
    commended. Because the projects mentioned are people’s oriented.

      He is compound liar. Where are the hospitals? If you go from Owerri to Nekede, you will see how deplorable that road is especially on concord side. The same with almost all the roads in Imo State.The truth is that he has not fulfilled up to 50% of his election promises.

    Okorocha is lying except he promised suffering to the people during his campaigns. How can a State without a simple waste disposal system be a success? He should just go and die somewhere. Is it because there seems to be no consequences for his maladministration? Kai

    Party affiliations apart, Okorocha may have done his very best, even as a failure, history will judge him eventually.. Naturally, he cannot go beyond his personal limit as an individual so his best may actually be far below the expectations of the people, I both objectively and subjectively. For me, would be Presidential possibles in the future, should take up lesser positions as Governors first, to enable people to aggregate them well whenever they throw themselves in for Presidency. We can all see who El Rufai is really, with happenings in Kaduna. Buhari’s case is something beyond redemptions already hence people should just live and endure with it
