Emeka Ihedioha of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) was yesterday sworn in as the governor of Imo State by the state chief judge, Justice Paschal Nnadi. Hon Ihedioha who took the oath of office shortly after his deputy, Gerald Irona extended hand of fellowship to all those who ran the governorship election with him even as he castigated the immediate past All Progressives Congress (APC) administration in the state for the degradation and destruction of some institutions in the state, including the state judiciary and House of Assembly.

He lamented the plight of pensioners in the state who were denied their entitlements and monthly pensions by the Rochas Okorocha administration, abandoned infrastructures as well as shoddy execution of capital projects due to flagrant disregard to due process and rule of law.

Dismissing the administration of the Okorocha administration as a monumental disaster, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha said that although he would not embark on any form of witch hunting against anybody who operated with that regime, “whoever had a hand in the rot perpetrated in that administration would be compelled  to account for his misdeeds”.

Assuring that his words still remain his bonds, the governor highlighted that he would take appropriate steps to restore confidence in the governance of the state with genuine conviction, commitment and candor.
