Chukwudi Mayor Eze, has said that the rating of Imo as less corrupt state in Nigeria, is an evidence that the Governor is committed to rid Imo State of sharp practices among actors of the state as it used to be in the past administration.
The Special Adviser stated this while interacting with newsmen in Owerri, Tuesday. Mayor Eze, a former Federal lawmaker maintained that Imo State has never had it so good in the area of due process and developmental projects.
