Imo monarchs state position on Okorocha’s probe

August 28, 2019

The Imo State Council of Traditional Rulers say they are in full support of Gov. Emeka Ihedioha’s plan to probe the administration of former Gov. Rochas Okorocha.

NAN reports that the Chairman of the council, Eze Samuel Ohiri, disclosed this to newsmen on Wednesday, at the end of an emergency meeting of the council where the resolution was taken.

He said that after a critical examination of the situation of Imo, the council deemed it imperative that Okorocha must be probed.

Ohiri said the latest discovery that Okorocha allegedly spent N10 billion to build police headquarters called for serious probe.

He said, “After the emergency meeting of all the traditional rulers, we resolved to encourage Ihedioha to ensure that all the government properties illegally acquired by the former governor and his cronies were recovered to Imo.

“We also want to use this opportunity to call on the Inspector General of Police to return the money used in building the police headquarters,” he said.

He said that “Imo does not have money to spend on Federal Government’s project,” adding that “FG is supposed to show its presence in Imo, not Imo building projects for FG.”

The royal father also admonished Okorocha, representing Imo West Senatorial District, to sto inciting his supporters to cause trouble in the state.

“Okorocha has finished his tenure as governor and we are calling on him to allow Ihedioha to govern the state without distractions,” he added.
