•Imo Governor-elect Ihedioha

 The Imo State Governor-Elect, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, on Monday said that there was high expectation from the people of the state and enormous pressure for him to succeed.

Chief Ihedioha also said that the incoming administration in the state does not have any cause to worry over the alleged last-minute recruitment by the outgoing governor of the state Rochas Okorocha, stressing that the state has significant resources.

He spoke at the sideline of the induction for the returning governors and the governors-elect at the Old Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Speaking in an interview with State House correspondents, Chief Ihedioha said: “There is huge expectation, very high, significant excitement in the state. So the pressure to succeed will be very significant.”

Asked if he will pay the N30,000 new minimum wage he said: “I have not resumed now, when I resume office I will look at it.”

On whether he would increase the Internally Generated Revenue in the state, he said: “We will run a government of the people for the people and by the people so in everything we do we will try to build a consensus and get the people buy into it.

“We will not be so much in a hurry but we have set up a transition committee to look at the various challenges that we envisage and design a road map and take a cue from our programmers in the course of the campaign. Of course, we had a road map but we now look at it with the realities as it is today and take a leap from there.”
