Mr. Ikem who is famous for his uncompromising stance on speaking truth to government using different channels including social media, in a Facebook post today, advised the Governor to streamline and priotize his capital projects in his second term.

Accoriding to the message titled "Agenda for Governor Ayade...1", the experienced Politician also ugred the Governor to set up workable timelines for all his projects.

Read the message in full :

"Your Excellency, as you step forward to take your oath of office, tomorrow, I know that at the back of your mind will be your legacy, four years from now. Whether you like to admit or even reject it to yourself, that's the way humans are wired. 

My 5 point unsolicited advice is short and as usual simple: 

1. Streamline and prioritize your capital projects. 

2. Set workable timelines for delivery and set them out clearly for the guidance of your subordinates and drivers of the projects. 

3. Identify and set out quick win projects in Education, Healthcare and Environment( including water and sanitation) only. 

4. Formulate a workable policy for the take off and sustainability of your Industries. 

5. Create a robust environment for community engagement, including deliberate visitations to communities and stakeholders  across the state. 

I wish you a successful second term, understanding that it will seem shorter than the first.

 Time is of the essence! 

Once again, Congratulations".

Ikem, a former national Publicity Secretary of PDP and former Commissioner for Works in the state who defected to the APC shortly after the 2015 general elections returned to the PDP last year ahead of the elections.
