He questioned how the former governor could have embezzled funds for the projects when the projects were actually executed.

Onwuemeodo said:

"We have always claimed that Okorocha as Governor had more than one thousand projects to his credit and nobody, including the Government in Imo, has said it is not true or has openly challenged us to publish the projects because they know that the projects exist. And if they exist, how would have someone made away with N106 billion and still do such befitting projects."

In another report, Rochas Okorocha has indicated his interest to run for the presidency in the 2023 presidential election.
