By Chidiebube Okeoma , Owerri
The Peoples Democratic Party in Imo state has said that the immediate past governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha, handed over a broke state to the governor,Emeka Ihedioha.
The PDP publicity secretary in the state, Damian Opara,who was reacting to the claim by Okorocha said that he handed over N42.5b to the governor aid that “Imo is broke.”
According to the PDP spokesperson ,Okorocha handed over N100b debt to the state with over 90 pension arrears to the current government.
Opara said “as a party, we want to say that Rochas Okorocha handed over a broke Imo to PDP.Okorocha handed over 90 months pension arrears to Emeka Ihedioha. He handed over N100b debt to Emeka Ihedioha. And the annoying one is that he handed over N200b contract liabilities to the current government.”
The PDP spokesperson alleged that the Ihedioha’s government was virtually starting on nothing, adding that the N42.5b claim by Okorocha was a “mirage “.
He said that the best thing that happened to the state was to ensure that a PDP government was elected.
Opara said ” we have the record of the liabilities Okorocha handed over to us.it has never been this bad since the creation of Imo state. Okorocha took the entire state for granted and ran the affairs of the state like his Rochas Foundation. He cared less about rule of law and due process.”
