IHEDIOHA who made the disclosure at a media parley in Owerri, said that 25 road contracts had been procured, with the first 19 already finished, while 15 per cent of the mobilisation fee had been paid to the contractors in a procurement he said went through the state Ministry of Works and the Bureau for Public Procurement.
Ihedioha said that he had instructed that signboards for the projects, with names of the contractors and other information, be mounted for public consumption.
Governor IHEDIOHA frowned at negative use of the social media and advised journalists to be more serious with news reporting and emphasize investigative journalism.
The governor said that his government will present what he termed realistic budget to the state House of Assembly by the end of the week, adding that he was determined to transform Imo.
