The Imo State Governor has promised that his rescue mission agenda for the next four years would be centred on the education sector.
Governor Rochas Okorocha made the pledge at the official commissioning of a new staff office complex at the premises of the Imo State Universal Basic Education Board (IMSUBEB) along Port Harcourt Road in Owerri, the state’s capital.
Focusing his rescue mission agenda on education, according to him, would enhance the welfare of teachers and other staff in the sector.
The Governor added that the development would also consolidate on the qualitative free education given to students across the state.
He said that his rescue mission agenda had positively changed the lives of people in the state in the past four years and expressed optimism that 2016 would be a year of consolidation and continuity of all the programmes embarked upon in his first tenure.
He also urged all workers in the state to imbibe a new spirit towards their duties in the new year and not to take the goodwill of the Imo State government for granted.
In her remark, the Executive Chairperson of IMSUBEB, Mrs Getrude Oduka, said that the provision of a conducive atmosphere for teaching and learning process as well as administrative activities by the state government was indeed a proof of its commitment to improving the welfare of workers in the state.
Thanking the Governor for the efforts, she also disclosed that the Imo State government had put measures in place for 2016, to ensure that they consolidate on achievements made previously in the education sector.
