Governor Hope Uzodimma on Friday hinted that his government is set to recruit 10000 teachers for the primary and secondary schools in Imo State.
Also, three brand new General Hospitals located in the oil producing area of Imo State – Ohaji/Egbema, Oguta and Oru East- will be commissioned next week while 19 others across the state have been slated for upgrade.
Governor Uzodimma dropped the hint during an interactive session with Imo State Elders Council at the Rockview Hotel Owerri.
While informing the elders of his modest achievements in the past 40 months in office, sector by sector, the governor recalled the strides he made in civil service, in road infrastructure, health, education, maritime and other critical areas.
To this end, Governor Uzodimma said: “Already three brand new general hospitals fully equipped with modern hospital equipment have been built and completed in the three Local Governments of Ohaji/Egbema, Oguta and Oru East that make up the oil producing Local Governments in Imo State.”
In their separate reactions, Members of the Elders Council commended the efforts of the Governor towards the development of Imo State which they acknowledged have surpassed their expectations.
Maurice Iwu advised that a new Imo should be all embracing and acknowledged that the massive road infrastructure has moved Imo State away from heterogenous society to homogenous society.
A former governor of Imo State, Ikedi Ohakim and an elder statesman, Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu said Governor Uzodimma has courage and intellect and that they are proud of him.
