Linus Okorie: Imo State’s best bet in 2019

In recent time Imo State has been marred by enormous challenges especially in the area of true leadership. Good governance and people oriented policies have been a far cry from reality as Imo is continually faced with leaders whose main priority is to enrich their pockets with the state’s treasury and that explain why Imo State is where it is today; the leaders don’t care about the people.
This breed of leaders without honour and integrity occupied the sensitive positions of governance of Imo State and brought setbacks to the state which has led to impoverishment of the people.
With this trend of leadership in Imo, It is now clear that the people are clamouring for a paradigm shift and in order to restore the confidence of the people of the State, breaking the Old Order is what is needed to achieve and sustain breakthrough operating results in Imo State. There is no other way.
Imo needs a governor who would work for the people and focus on channeling resources towards the development of the state while providing progressive leadership.
This is what the Young Progressive Party, YPP, gubernatorial candidate, Dr Linus Okorie is bringing to table. This is the leadership Imo State needs at this point in its history.
