Dear Your Excellency, Honourable Dedem Emeka Ihedioha, on the 29th of May, you shall be addressed as the Executive Governor of Imo State, but before I go ahead to give you my brotherly advice, I want you to, while taking that oath remember (1) Your cap (2) Remember May 29, 2023.
I shall in the course of this piece tell you why I said so.
I must be frank with you, Imolites did not place much expectation from you like they did to your predecessor Rochas Okorocha, the reasons are obvious; while in 2011, Owelle was seen as part of the common people and therefore was expected to deliver, you are being seen as part of the political class, even though you rose from a very humble beginning as P.A to one of the top politicians just around 1999, same way Honourable Rotimi Amaechi rose from the ranks of P.A to become a governor.
Now, you will do yourself good and write your name in gold if you would surprise them by being a governor of the people, and how do you…
