Imo Governor, Emeka Ihedioha Says He Inherited A Completely Ruined State From Okorocha

Ihedioha said he had been working from his private residence since he resumed as the governor because Okorocha left the Government House in ruins.

Governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha claimed he inherited a state that is completely ruined by his predecessor, Rochas Okorocha.

Ihedioha stated this while speaking with newsmen at his private residence in Owerri, the state capital, on Sunday, November 24, 2019.

The governor said that his administration has continued to rebuild the state despite the challenges he met on the assumption of office.

“I inherited an epileptic government. What I saw on assumption of office was worse than what I imagined when we were campaigning.”

He further stated that he had been working from his private residence since he resumed as the governor because Okorocha left the Government House in ruins.

“The Chief Judge of the state has no official quarters. The Speaker of the House of Assembly has no official quarters. I am operating from my official residence. I charge you to go and see things for yourselves.”

Ihedioha further revealed that has “awarded 25 road contracts for over N40bn” since he became governor.

“We inherited a state with huge infrastructural and institutional decay, but we have restored confidence in the governance of our state. We have awarded 25 road contracts in five months of our administration. Imo people now have a governor they can be proud of.”

KanyiDaily recalls that Governor Ihedioha had accused Okorocha of stealing about N1trillion from the state’s treasury while in power.
