Imo State governor-elect, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha is expected to travel to Germany on Wednesday as he steps up his search for development partners and investors to assist him in building the Imo State of his dream, where, above all, the teeming youth population will find decent employment.
The Secretary of the Inauguration committee on Diaspora Initiatives, Barrister Anselem Okorie disclosed this exclusively to CHECKPOINTCHARLEY on Monday in Abuja, saying the governor-elect will also use the opportunity to rob minds with Imolites in Germany in a Town Hall Meeting in Frankfurt on Saturday on how best to take the state forward after Governor Rochas Okorocha’s historic misrule.
Mr. Ihedioha is expected back in the country next week, he said.
The former deputy speaker of the Nigerian House of Representaives had also made a similar trip to the United kingdom earlier this month, where he had “solicited the support and cooperation of the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council in the United Kingdom, (CEIC).”
The Council is an investment arm of the Commonwealth Nations.
Mr. Ihedioha later described the meeting as, “fruitful and forward-looking, with expected strategic cooperation in key areas of wealth creation, agriculture, investment and other critical areas geared towards enhancing and developing our potentials for the economic development of the state”.
Ihedioha, who defeated Mr. Uche Nwosu of the Action Alliance (AA) in last month’s Imo gubernatorial election, will be sworn in on May 29 as the execuutive governor of Imo State.
