Okewulonu spoke on the heels of the inauguration of the committee to organize the ushering in of the new PDP administration in the state with him as the Chairman of the Committee.
He posited that that Ihedioha has “from the beginning, consistently defined an ambitious agenda for his administration that is anchored on high standards of procedure, rigorous adherence to due process, and excellence in the delivery of results.”
He assured that the committee will work hard “in line with the high standards which are expected to constitute the defining hallmarks, in all ramifications of the Ihedioha administration in Imo State
The former SGI contended that with the “calibre and pedigree of members of the Inauguration Committee, Your Excellency has once again demonstrated your unwavering commitment towards restoring sanity, pragmatism and the spirit of thoroughness in the affairs of government, ” adding that the committee’s composition has further confirmed Ihedioha’s avowed disposition towards inclusiveness and excellence in the way the in-coming administration will be operated.
Chief Okewulonu assured that despite the difficulties the committee may encounter as a result of the anticipated non-cooperation from the outgoing administration, the committee will approach it’s assignment with all sense of responsibility and in line with the high expectations of Imo people.
“Your Excellency’s meticulous selection of the committee’s membership from diverse backgrounds, with persons who have distinguished themselves in respective fields of endeavour, will indeed make our assignment less cumbersome, “Chief Okewulonu opined.
