Imo Finance Commissioner and Accountant-General’s Interrogation Over …

| January 15, 2013 | 0 Comments

Only a few days ago, two officials of Imo state government in the persons of Deacon Chike Okafor and Mr George Eche, the Commissioner for Finance  and Accountant General respectively by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC)  over false and unfounded allegation orchestrated to discredit His Excellency Owelle Rochas Okorocha and APGA-led state government.
Even as they have regained their freedom, the ruling party in the state has observed with dismay that Sen. hope Uzodinma, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, Eze Cletus Ilomuanya and Eze Duruihuoma are behind this evil plot against the governor and the state government.
They are boasting all over the town as well as dropping the name of Mr. President thus claiming to have the support of the presidency to impeach Gov. Owelle Rochas Okorocha. They also claim to have set aside 3billion Naira to enable them offer each member of the state legislature 100million Naira to actualize the evil plan. This has no doubt alluded to the outburst of the Political Adviser to the President, Alhaji Ali Gulak which earlier suggested to members of Imo State House of Assembly to impeach Gov. Owelle Rochas Okorocha.
This wicked plan to whittle down the roaring image of Gov. Rochas Okorocha and possibly remove him as governor of Imo state before 2015 will be resisted by APGA and the good people of Imo state.

We have rather expected these discredited sons of the state to bury their heads in shame and appreciate the achievements of the present government which include free education at all level, construction of 27 new General Hospitals, construction of 305 model schools, construction of over 1000km of urban and rural roads, transformation of Orlu and Okigwe cities, construction of Imo College of Advanced Professional Studies ( ICAPS) and Young Scientist School, construction of Imo Concorde Apartments,construction of Heroes Square,revival of Imo Palm Plantation,construction of Ikemba Ojukwu Centre and many other people-oriented projects that spread all over the state.

It is also surprising that this evil plot is hatched just as Gov Owelle Rochas Okorocha  paid up all loans collected by the past administration  including the 6.4 billion Naira obtained from UBA by the former governor, Chief Ikedi Ohakim at the twilight of his administration.
Unfortunately, the same  EFCC that hurriedly swooped on the two innocent government functionaries on trump-up charges is still foot-dragging in arresting Ohakim since he left office in 2011 even as available records have clearly proven that the loan was secured to fund the failed re-election bid of the former PDP governor.

The delayed arrest of ex-governor Ikedi Ohakim vis-a-vis the detention of the two officials of APGA-led state government over false and unfounded allegation has again  given credence to the fact that our nation has failed in the fight against corruption.

While we urge Gov. Owelle Rochas Okorocha to remain focused and committed in the ongoing transformation of Imo state, APGA as a party wishes to warn against any further attempt to either distract the governor or tannish the image he painstakingly built many years ago.
