Imo State Governor, Emeka Ihedioha, has accused the immediate past Governor of the State,
Rochas Okorocha, of stealing N1trillion while in power.
This was contained in a statement on Friday issued by his Special Adviser on Media, Steve Osuji.
“Available records show that in eight years, former Governor Okorocha mismanaged about
One Trillion Naira belonging to Imo State”, he said.
“We are taking our time in unveiling the numerous atrocities of the last administration and certainly,
he must answer for all the evil he did against the people of Imo State.
“It is very strange that a former Governor could sit and concoct lies. How could Governor Emeka
Ihedioha spend N2.8b on sanitation? What was it used for? Okorocha’s problem is that he is so
used to lies that he no longer knows the difference between lies and the truth.
“The state spends only about Twenty Five Million Naira on sanitation and the bulk of the funds
come from support from corporate organizations as part of their corporate social responsibility.
“Okorocha also alleged that Governor Ihedioha has, within two months in office, built a Hotel
in Abuja and new houses in Owerri and his village. This further shows that the man, Okorocha is sick.
“As at today, Governor Ihedioha operates from his private residence in Owerri, following the
pillage and vandalisation of Government House by former Governor Okorocha and his cronies.
“How could he say the Governor is building new houses, when he owns a palatial residence in Owerri,
where he operates from and mansions in his village, built many years ago? The question is – are houses
built in two months?
“Only Okorocha can build a house in two months and it collapses after a short while. Imo people
already know that Okorocha is a habitual liar and should not be taken seriously.
“The truth is that Okorocha wrecked Imo State. All he is doing is to attempt to divert the attention
of Imo people. Unfortunately, Imo people are smarter than that
