Imo State indigenes in the State of Texas under the aegis of the State Chapter of THE OHAKIM 2011 CONSOLIDATION MANDATE GROUP IN THE DIASPORA are mobilizing for Gov. Ikedi Ohakim for his re-election bid. The State Chapter of THE OHAKIM 2011 CONSOLIDATION MANDATE GROUP IN THE DIASPORA has been building a network of grassroots support among Imo citizens in the State of Texas by systematically dislodging the negative information on Governor Ohakim with factual information.

We have thoroughly evaluated the revolutionary initiatives of Governor Ohakim and found them to be what the Imo State needs to be relevant in both Nigeria and internationally. For instance, the Imo State Rural Roads Maintenance Agency (IRROMA) has to continue as it will continue to spur economic development in all parts of Imo State . We saw that under IRROMA there were some grassroots projects that ushered in a new era in which people in rural areas can see and feel the dividends of democracy.

Contrary to what the detractors were saying, dredging of Nworie River was the right thing to do by any responsible government. That project has both health and economic advantages to Imo State in general. Ohakim has made giant strides in other areas such as Oguta Lake , Owerri Airport , education, and clean environment.

We want Ohakim to continue for another four years so that he will be able to complete his programs. Imo State does need any interruption in governance at this time. The opponents can wait for short Four years.

THE OHAKIM 2011 CONSOLIDATION MANDATE GROUP IN THE DIASPORA is comprised of intellectuals of Imo State origins who reside in various parts of United States , Canada , and others. This group has national officials and state officers. The organizational hierarchy is designed to enlarge and attract the support for Governor Ohakim from those who have not been active or participating in the past.
