Chidiebube Okeoma, Owerri Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, on Monday said he was handing over a viable and secured state to the governor-elect, Emeka Ihedioha. According to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, the governor spoke when he received the new commander of 34 Artillery Brigade, Obinze, Yusuf Tukura, in his office. Okorocha was further quoted as saying that his mission in the Senate was to agitate for free education for all Nigerian students. He noted that free education would give children of poor Nigerians access to education. He said, “I also want to use the opportunity of being in the Senate to rebuild the political bridge that links the South-East with the rest of Nigerians. “The political bridge is somehow faulty and it is dutifully incumbent on me to rebuild this bridge so that Igbo will play a recognised role in Nigerian politics.  “I am going to the Senate to promote the cause of ordinary Nigerians. These are some of the things I am going to the Senate to do. Otherwise, I have no business there.” Okorocha said the state had remained peaceful through the efforts of his government in partnership with security agencies in the state. He attributed the success of his administration to sacrifice. Copyright PUNCH. All rights reserved.
