Former governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has attacked his successor, Emeka Ihedioha, accusing him for coming at him and his government in order to find excuse to squander the N42.5 billion that was handed over to the new administration.
He described Ihedioha as a man who has no agenda for the Imo State people hence he was yet to make any policy statement associated with governance.
Ihedioha has since after assuming office on May 29, has always attacked Okorocha and his government and has vowed to ensure the former administration is probed.
In a statement by Sam Onwuemeodo, his media aide, on Wednesday Okorocha said, “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.”
Adding that the constant negative remarks about the brand new Government House Okorocha handed over to Ihedioha was just for the new governor to find a way of squander the N42.5 billion the former governor left behind, the governor added:
“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.”
