Former governor of Imo, Rochas Okorocha, has alleged that Governor Emeka Ihedioha of the state has no programme for Imo people, but preparing the grounds towards squandering the N42.5 billion he (Okorocha) left in the state's treasury.
The former governor made the allegation in a statement by his special adviser on media, Sam Onwuemeodo, Vanguard reports.
Legit.ng notes that the statement read: “On Tuesday, June 4, Governor Emeka Ihedioha of Imo State said his predecessor, Rochas Okorocha operated from a bush bar in Government House, which he said was an eyesore and that is the reason he has decided to operate from outside at the moment.
“He had earlier described the entire Government House as a decayed place. From all indications, Chief Ihedioha has no programme for Imo people. He appears stranded since May 29, when he took over. That is why he has never made any policy statement or any comment associated with governance.
“He has been threatening fire and brimstone and trying to incite Imo people against Okorocha, but has met brick wall.
“He has come with the known Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, style of giving flimsy excuses as prelude to wasteful expenditures.
“The Government House Chief Ihedioha is labouring in vain to run down is the same one of note including front row media practitioners in the country had visited at one time or the other and made their complimentary remarks. It is the same Government House most Imo people have also been to.
“We want to say again that the Government House Okorocha handed over to Governor Ihedioha was brand new with ultra-modern structures, unlike the ghetto the PDP administrations had operated from for 12 years."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, vowed that he would become the president of the Nigeria in future.
Governor Okorocha made the statement on Sunday, May 26, during his valedictory thanksgiving service held at the Government House Chapel in Owerri.
According to him, his current political travails, particularly the seizure of his certificate of return as the Imo west senator-elect, were only strengthening him for the presidential seat.
