An Illustrious son of Okigwe Zone Ikechukwu Anyanwu….the publisher of Arise Afrika Magazine has spoken volume of the capacity of Arise Afrika in raising the beautiful continent of Africa one information at a time,
“We are beginning from our community, beloved Imo State and our nation. blazing a trail in the area of news update, leadership blogging, reshape our society, recreate our ethical, cultural values.
As the race to occupy the Douglas house come 2019, we would play an active role to ensure that the people are well informed so as to make the right decisions.
At this time of economic recession, our people really want to be liberated from the untold hardships, hunger and sufferings and shackle of gimmicks which is characterized by self seeking and self enriching politicians who makes lots of promises to the people to gain their vote and only abandoned them.
He spoke about the Rescue Mission Government and gave the government some kudos, although more needs to be done for the people. He explained the word RESCUE to simply mean “the act of assisting to make sure that a person or situation is saved from a great danger. More especially when life is involved. Another word related to this word Rescue, this time around, the word redeem is more spiritual and often used by people or the most desired and admired aspect of being rescued or saved in the present situation. The person or situation seems more palatable and reassuring; this time around the person has a long lasting feeling of freedom and deliverance.
The Executive Governor of Imo State, HE Owelle Rochas Okorocha OON has really played a vital role as the driver of the Rescue mission in Imo State Government. For the record of truthfulness, the Imo situation before 2011 Election, necessitated the call for the Rescue mission and that was the expectation of Imo people based on the Prevailing circumstances in Imo state due to the dislike of Imo people, on the behaviour of the pilot of the Clean and Green Government of H.E. Ikedi Ohakim, that Govt, seemed not accepted by the people as that Ohakim lost the integrity and the cooperate Sanity of the Social Contract and respect for governed or Citizenry. Imo people came out, that gave birth to Rescue Mission .
We will simply submit that Okorocha’s Rescue Government has recorded huge success and has made wonderful impart in the Annals of Imo State Politics based on innovation, infrastructural development, youth encouragement and empowerment more especially on free Education, functional city and raising the living standard of Imo People.
Government alone can not deliver on this mandate of transforming the state, their has to be a collaborative support from the citizenry. Therefore, Arise Afrika has been making serious statements in this regards.
