Imo State Governor Emeka Ihedioha has said that a combination of policies and programmes created the atmosphere that made the state the fastest growing economy in Nigeria.
On Thursday, November 21, Business Day Newspaper held its yearly state competitiveness and good governance award and recognised Imo as the fastest growing economy.
Special assistant to the Imo governor on research, Ogu Bundu Nwadike, said the award was no fluke because since Ihedioha got into office, his priority had been the holistic economic development of the state.
He stated, “The governor first re-invented and re-created the economic development template for Imo State. It all began with the creation of vital Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) that enhance economic development.
