Accord Party stalwart lambasts Gov Okorocha … Says he pursues anti-people policies

The planned re-location of Eke-Ukwu Owrri Market by the Imo State government has been described as a misplaced priority at this period of dire economic stress and should be shelved.
In a damming reviewed  the administration of Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, the Accord Party’s governorship candidate in the 2015 election, Mr. Ken Ojiri, accused the governor of pursuing anti-people policies.
He contended that “re-modeling the market and improving upon the existing structures in the market is an ideal path to follow as he cited ancient markets like the Onitsha Main Market, the Calabar Market and the Rimi Market in Kano that have not been re-located though they have been there for years.
Speaking on a wide range of issues, Mr. Ojiri alleged that Governor Okorocha’s programmes and policies were poorly conceived and badly implemented.
He cited the ongoing road expansion in Owerri metropolis, describing the programme as ill-advised, insisting that it did not comply with Owerri City Master Plan.
The former governorship candidate equally faulted the demolition of structures with proper approvals without compensations, more so at this period of economic difficult as he described it as insensitive on the part of the governor.
In his words, “all over the world governments pursue uncompromisingly the happiness of the people at all time; unfortunately, the reverse is the case in Imo State”.
He accused Okorocha of economic sabotage against the state having “wasted more asphalt on substandard roads – more than any government in the history of Imo State”.
