Governor Okorochas averred that the first half of Rescue Mission government has gone and that there is need to bring in fresher hands with new ideas and creativity for the betterment of Imo people. He dismissed the idea that the dissolution was for 2015 elections saying that he is rather interested in a legacy that will impact on the next generations.
“You can hold your heads for your spectacular contributions towards the Rescue Mission agenda of this administration, which has been variously described as huge success even in the camp of the opposition”.

My friends are people of creative minds with commensurate hard work and patriotism. Our communities are expecting so much from us because we have raised the bar of governance. We cannot afford to slow down because we have been proven to have done well. This is the time to even go the extra mile to serve our people”.
