A Lagos-based chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and founder of the first indigenous computer learning institute in Nigeria, Rimax Institute, Chief Livinus Okwara, has lauded the efforts of the Imo State governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, in the educational sector in the state.
Okwara, who is an indigene of Imo State and a strong supporter of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s old political party, Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN), yesterday, said Okorocha’s free education programme has impacted positively on the state as many youths in the state now have access to free education.
The APC chieftain, who is also a staunch supporter of Okorocha, described the governor as the ‘new Awolowo’ because of his love for education as well as progressive thinking.
“Because of my love for education, I embraced UPN and Awolowo was my mentor. When I travelled to Imo State after my disappointment with so many governors who had come and gone in that state, I met the good works of the governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha. I was so appreciative and elated about the progress he has brought to the state. People who never saw tarred road walked on it for the first time, enjoyed it and appreciated it”, he said.
