A Joint committee that will oversee handover ceremony in Imo State on May 29, 2019 has been constituted and inaugurated by Governor Rochas Okorocha.
This has put to rest confusion over the handover process. A programme earlier drawn up by Governor Okorocha’s Transition committee which included a meeting scheduled for May 3 between the State Governor, Rochas Okorocha and Governor Elect, Emeka Ihedioha, did not take place.
The Joint committee was inaugurated at the Exco chambers of Government House, Owerri
Governor Okorocha was represented by Secretary to the State Government, Mark Uchendu, who heads the Government side of the commitee, while Mr.Chris Okewulonu, a former Secretary to Imo State Government, heads the team of the Governor Elect, Hon.Emeka Ihedioha.
A statement signed by Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemedo, said a small technical committee will emerge from the enlarged commitee to provide it with a roadmap ahead of the handover date.
