“We have had so many interventions through Global Development Partners in the form of provision of basic amenities but going through the records, there is no commensurate value neither have they impacted on our people positively. Therefore, in our wisdom, we recommended a legislature for a Bureau that will coordinate all interventions from local partners to ensure proper management, implementation and positive impact on our people and value for money” the Governor added.
He further stressed that it can never be business as usual as some reforms may be radical in nature having weighed on available options and the best is to create the change that is necessary for the people of Imo State to thrive.
