Newly sworn in governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, has said he will establish a security outfit code-named – ‘North East West (NEW)’ for the state.

Uzodinma announced this during his maiden broadcast on Wednesday, warning that the era of “executive lawlessness and neo-feudalism, in Imo is gone forever”.

In a statement by Oguwike Nwachuku, his chief press secretary, the governor listed policy measures that his administration intends to apply to achieve the dream of a “new Imo”.

According to the governor, his vision for the state is predicated on freedom, security and shared prosperity, and that the situation of things at present indicates that Imo requires fundamental reform to forge a new trajectory.

“To achieve his vision of Rehabilitation, Reconstruction and Recovery, Governor Uzodinma directed the overhaul of the bureaucratic structures to entrench strict adherence to extant laws, procedures and statutes to achieve efficient service delivery. He assured of prompt payment of salaries, pensions and other statutory obligations,” the statement said.

It added that Uzodinma’s administration will establish the Imo State Education Opportunity Programme (ISEOP) focused on skill acquisition, innovation, manpower development and entrepreneurship.

The programme is with a view to producing a new generation of graduates equipped for immediate employment and self-reliance, the statement explained.
