In line with the rehabilitation and recovery of all moribund institutions of the state, the Shared Prosperity administration of His Excellency the Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma set up an Interim Management Committee for the Imo Transport Company (ITC) with a firm mandate on recovery of all company properties, rehabilitation of decayed infrastructures and reconstruction of the architectural organigram as well as repositioning the company.
Based on intelligence gathering and after due diligence, the team of the IMC made a monumental record today by the recovery of Imo Transport Company (ITC) properties which were stolen and converted for private use by the former Chairman, Chief Laz Okafor.
The stolen vehicles listed below were used by Chief Okafor set up a private transport company named Mass Transport Network.
1. Toyota Sienna ABC 170 XB (031)
2. Toyota Sienna AFK 10 ZY (022)
3. Toyota Hiace CHR 99 XB (054)

It is noteworthy that the former Chairman is under EFCC investigation for public fund mismanagement and embezzlement, especially as it concerns ITC. This recovery further puts to rest the speculation of possible witch-hunting as propagated by the opposition.
Imolites are enjoined to note that under the Shared Prosperity administration of His Excellency the Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma, criminality would not be condoned as transparency remains the watch word.
Every moribund institution of the state must be revamped for productivity and accountability.
The interim Management committee chairman, Hon. Onyekachi Ibezim has vowed not leave any stone unturned in recovering whatever was illegally removed from the company, and to restore the company to it’s lost glory.
