Thousands who gathered at the Ahiajoku Convention Centre, Owerri last Tuesday were moved when Imo State Governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha narrated his ordeals at the hands of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) which members he said had written over 80 petitions against him since he assumed position as governor.
“I have done nothing wrong”, he said emotionally as he reeked out all the oppressions and frustrations he suffered in PDP.
“PDP should leave me alone, I have paid my dues but was not given the position of a ordinary cleaner in the party”, he said as he appealed to members of the party in the state to desist from blackmailing him before the presidency.
Giving details of his stewardship in office for two years, he said his administration has no interest in party politics but committed to providing the dividends of democracy to the citizens of the state.
Governor Okorocha described himself as a child of circumstance who came in when there was need for it.
On local government funds, Owelle Okorocha explained that the funds were channeled to developmental projects in the rural areas, adding that his administration has not taken any loan for any project in the State.
“This is the first time that local governments in the State have something to show for their accounts, this is also the first time local governments are handing capital projects”, he disclosed.
