…Says You Lack Moral Justification To Criticise Me
By IGNATIUS OKPARA, Owerri
￼BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, has blasted ex- governor of the state, chief Ikedi Ohakim, over recent unpleasant comments on his administration.
Ohakim, who governed Imo state for four years under the platform of the opposition peoples Democratic party, PDP was recently quoted in the media as saying that Okorocha, has destroyed the state.
But reacting to the statement friday, governor Okorocha, described the criticism as unfortunate, stating that he (Ohakim) has no moral right to make any statement in respect of his administration, as he lacked the will-power to lead the state, when he had the opportunity.
The governor in a statement signed by his chief press secretary CPS, Sam Onwuemeodo, pointed out that in the four years of Ohakim’s governance, Imo was an embodiment of misrule and impunity was the order of the day.
“The Imo State governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha and indeed, the Rescue Mission Government in the state had read the banner headline of the Daily Sun of Tuesday, April 5, 2016, captioned, ‘Ohakim bombs Governor Okorocha … You’ve Destroyed Imo State’.
“The former governor of the state had spoken in an interview he granted the Daily Sun correspondent in Owerri.
“We had taken time also to go through the whole story to see whether the former governor had told his audience how Governor Okorocha destroyed Imo State, but we didn’t find any claim or allusion close to that.
“He only talked about the governor planning to install another Orlu man governor in 2019 and the governor sacking the Secretary to the Government of Imo State (SSG), and all that he claimed he had left behind in the Government House Owerri.”
Okorocha, insisted that Ohakim’s administration ruined Imo state, saying the ex- governo should bury his head in shame rather than criticising a government that has taken the state to the next level.
