Chairman of Blue Diamond Logistics, Mr. Festus Mbisiogu, has lauded Imo State Government’s efforts in key areas of governance, noting that the sustenance of such interventions would ensure an enabling business environment.
He also said the ongoing programmes in education, health and infrastructure would tackle unemployment in the state.
Mbisiougu, who is also the head of Shangai Engineering Works, said the taste government’s efforts were also capable of addressing most social problems in the state.
Hence, he urged Govenor Rochas Okorocha not to relent in his determination to give the best to the state.
He particularly commended the Imo State Government for embarking on massive road construction across all the local governments, describing the development as a catalyst for development.
In addition, Mbisiogu hailed the construction of hospitals in each of the 27 local government areas in the state.
He further said the free education programme in the state, is working, noting that so many beneficiaries of the scheme abound.
His words: “While I admit the presence of hotels across the state, the state also deserves to be an industrial centre. Therefore, the government should sustain its interventions in all sector to ensure that investors will find our states irresistible. With an industrialised Imo, the issues of unemployment and crime would be largely tackled.
“Since my return to the country, I must admit that things are looking up in my state, Imo. I undertook a tour of my state and was impressed with the things I saw on the ground. Imo is taking a new look and this is empirically verifiable by anyone. The roads have been constructed as four-lane roads like the ones in Abuja. For a state that is committed to industrialisation, linking up every part of the state is quite impressive. This should serve as a template for anyone aspiring to succeed our dear governor. As am i talking, some road projects are also ongoing, and that testifies to the commitment of the governor to development. Governor Okorocha deserves commendations for things he has done and i also urge him to ensure that the ongoing projects are completed before the end of his tenure.”
