The Imo State governor-elect Emeka Ihedioha on Wednesday in Owerri inaugurated a 139-member Transition Technical Committee, urging them to draw a policy framework on how to raise and manage the requisite resources available in the state after a critical look at what the outgoing administration would hand over to the new regime.
Addressing the committee members, Ihedioha stated that the job of the said committee has been made simple following his decision to subdivide the committee into 12 sub-committees and would want the committee’s job concluded in six weeks.
“To make the job of this Transition Technical Committee more effective, it has been subdivided into sub-committees with clear terms of reference which shall be handed over to the chairmen of the respective sub-committees. This division into, and composition of the sub-committees has already been published.
“The sub-committees will be given four weeks to complete their work and forward to the main committee which will now have a further two weeks to consolidate their report making a total of six weeks. Kindly note that all through the assignment, the main committee will generally oversight the activities of the sub-committees”.
He said the principal task of the committee is to bring life to his already articulated manifesto with a view to deliver to the people on promise.
“When we started this journey, we had a carefully articulated manifesto put together by respective professionals from this state. Our people keyed into it and with their votes and the grace of God, we are here today. Your principal task therefore is to bring life to the manifesto so that we can hit the ground running with deliverables and timelines”.
