The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has dubbed those who criticise him as “criminals who have made politics business of self agrandisement” adding that never again would those with no track records represent Imo State.
Speaking at Government House, Owerri when the new executive of the socio-cultural group, Orlu Zuru Mee, paid him a solidarity visit over a recent detention of some of his aides by EFCC, the governor swore that his government “cannot do any thing that is unconstitutional or be found guilty of any corrupt practices” stressing also that “this government is focused and can never be distracted under any circumstance”. Warning that government would no longer tolerate what he referred to as indiscipline from whatever quarters, he stated; “politics of oppressing the people at the advantage of a few must stop “as he warned those he called job seekers who have remained in the old fashioned politics” to take note.
The governor promised Imo people that his administration will transform the state into one of the best in the country’s history as he announced that three cultural centres will be established in the three zones of the state to preserve “our culture and identify” and challenged the zones to make land available for the projects.
Earlier, the leader of the group, Engr. Chime Nzeribe noted that the spate of developments recorded under Governor Okorocha “has not been seen in the history of Igboland.
He condemned the “fallacious” allegations and publications against the administration and the invitation of EFCC saying they were meant to disorganize the rescue mission of the governor.
