From Angela Nkwo – Akpulu, Owerri
Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has said his immediate past Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere; the Senator representing Okigwe zone, Senator Benjamin Uwajimogu; and the immediate past Secretary to the State Government, Chief George Eche must come and apologize to him lest they incur political accident.
He made the disclosure while swearing in his new political appointees and career Permanent Secretaries of the Civil Service at the Government House, Owerri.
Okorocha also included his brother in-law, Chuks Ololo and the erstwhile Secretary to the State Government, Jude Ejiogu.
According to him, until he appointed Madumere; Eche, Ejiogu; they had no capacity to raise N22.5milion to purchase governorship nomination forms of the All Progressive Congress (APC), insisting that they had no money before then.
The Governor said “tell Madumere, Ejiogu, Ololo and Eche to come back and apologize to me before they crash. Tell them to come back so that I may bless them. They had no dime before they came into this government. How did they get the N22.5m to buy APC governorship forms”.
Speaking on Imo roads which in recent times are in bad shape, Okorocha said a total of N3.5billion has been earmarked for the rehabilitation and construction of roads and schools, even as he insisted the State has money.
The Governor said “We will complete all the road projects. Each community in Imo state will get N4million in our community project that will commence very soon. It will gulp N3.2b”.
