Gov. Okorocha reveals worse govt ever in Imo, blasts Ohakim

The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has identified the
administration of his immediate predecessor, Chief Ikedi Ohakim as the
most hated and devalued of all the past governments in the state.

Governor Okorocha said that ever since the former governor made public
his intention to re-contest the governorship position in the state, he
(Ohakim) has chosen to attack him in the media day in day out.

The governor made the claim through his Chief Press Secretary, Sam
Onwuemeodo, who averred that he has chosen to ignore his verbal
attacks for personal reasons.

Okorocha said that of all those who have governed Imo State since its
creation in 1976, military and civilian, his (Ohakim's) administration
appears to be the most hated, and the most devalued.

According to him, "He does not also have any audience. Nobody listens
to him again. And people do not read what he says. It is as bad as
that.

"Ohakim "does not even talk like someone who has governed the state
before. He does not also watch the conduct of Chief Achike Udenwa,
also a former governor. A former governor should know when to talk and
when to keep mute. Criticizing everything done by the occupant of the
seat you had occupied before, smacks of frustration and envy.

"When the government began the remodeling of the children park's
bridge to connect it with Heroes' Square to avoid the traffic jam
along that Concord Hotel road whenever there is a big function at the
place, Chief Ohakim picked an unfounded information from the social
media and said the bridge collapsed, which was not true

"When the heavy rain of Friday, June 8, 2018 came with a devastating
whirlwind that destroyed both private and public properties in Owerri
including the roof of a building in one of the government's built city
schools, Chief Ohakim made it an issue, when there were more serious
reports from other states, the rain also caused havoc"

Okorocha said the former governor should have known better , rather
than criticizing his projects .

"Chief Ohakim had governed the state, and let him take up Governor
Okorocha on issues of governance or achievements. Okorocha said he has
more than one thousand verifiable projects located in various parts of
the state, let him take up such issues and not talking about roof
destroyed by wind.

"The elite who criticize Rochas in the state have not committed any
crime. Imo people are very active. They do not give those who govern
them breathing space, to bring out the best in them. They did it to
Ndubuisi Kanu, and Sam Mbakwe and Imo people's opinions on them today
and when they held sway are not the same."

According to him, It is only in the case of Chief Ohakim that almost
eight years after leaving as governor, Imo people have refused or
failed to say anything good about him.

He added, "Not even the strange newspaper called IMO REFORMER
associated with his name, that writes about Okorocha from page one to
the last page, has helped in any way.

"For now, the noise in the state is all about who succeeds Rochas. The
elite want to install someone. They are entitled to such ambition.


"Rochas is also keen in who succeeds him to continue keeping the flag
of rapid development flying. At the end of the day, Imo people will
take the final decision through the ballot box. It is not a propaganda
thing" Governor Okorocha stated."
