PDP in a hurry to loot Imo State treasury, Okorocha alleges


Governor Rochas Okorocha

Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha has alleged that members of the state chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) are in a hurry to assume political power of the state from May 29, 2019 essentially to loot the state’s treasury.

The governor stated this yesterday while reacting to a recent claim by the PDP that the state government had auctioned about 71 government vehicles in the past few days.

In a statement yesterday by Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, the governor said: “Members of the People’s Democratic Party in the state are obviously in a hurry to resume their usual looting of the treasury and property of the state, reading their body languages and considering their utterances, especially when they have stayed out of power for eight years without reprieve.


“They are either talking about non-existent N17 billion that has been withdrawn by the government or talking about the lands to revoke and the vehicles that have been auctioned or threatening fire and brimstone.

“This was a party that governed the state for 12 and has nothing to show for that outing. But Governor Rochas Okorocha has more than 1000 verifiable projects to his credit. And nobody has disputed this claim.”

“They have only been talking about those frivolous things opponents of the administration want to hear, including money, vehicles and so on. Why have they not talked about whether to continue with the free education programme or not, or the urban renewal policy, or to continue with the six universities built by the administration or not, and so on? Imo people are waiting for them on these issues,” the statement said.
