Amazed with these Executive pronouncements, the South East National Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Dr. Ijeomah Arodiogbu has commended the Governor.
In a media parley with Correspondents in Owerri, Dr. Arodiogbu disclosed that what the Civil Servants couldn’t get in previous Administrations they are receiving now under the APC led government.

On soft loan/grant to farmers, the governor was also extolled for thinking beyond ‘white collar jobs’ to a more diversified agricultural expansion.
Arodiogbu tasked the would-be beneficiaries to take the available opportunity seriously and as avenue fashioned out to better their lives.
