Imo State Governor, Chief Rochas Okorocha, has led a 100-man delegation to Turkey to explore business and investment opportunities in that country.
This is the second time in less than a year that the governor will be travelling outside the country with a large delegation
The governor had travelled with a large contingent to the same country some months ago. He said that the gains of the last trip would be seen soon.
A statement signed by Okorocha’s media scribe, Sam Onwuemeodo, said the trip, which comprised some journalists, industrialists and others, would last three days.
The statement urged people of the state to pray for the entourage, saying that the trip would lead to replication of similar policy of free education in the state, stressing that the journey was in line with the ‘Industry, Industry, Industry; Factory, Factory, Factory; Job, Job, Job’ policy of the governor’s second tenure.
The statement reads: “The Rescue Mission Government in the state wishes to inform Imo people and the general public that more than 100 indigenes of the state have left for Turkey on industrial trip at the instance of the Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha and the government.
Those on the trip are mainly industrialists who are indigenes of the state, and few other personalities including selected media practitioners and businessmen. “The industrialists who constitute the bulk of the contingent are men and women whose vocations have been in various aspects of industrialisation including agro-based ventures.”
