In a statement made available to okay.ng by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, the governor listed free and qualitative education programme in the State and more than 1000 verifiable projects as some of the reasons he would be missed.
Okorocha said: “The free education programme in the State which some opponents of the government had tried to discredit when it was introduced has yielded obvious remarkable results.
“And aside from the School enrolment in the State snowballing from 381,000 in 2011 to more than One million in 2017, the State has continued to lead in JAMB applications for the Seventh time now.
“The State has also continued to do very well in WAEC Exams. For instance, in the 2018 Senior School Certificate Exam (SSCE), the State came fifth out of the Thirty-Six States in the Country and the Federal Capital Territory.”
