Gov Okorocha’s Ex-aide berates govt over urban renewal programme

The on-going urban renewal project of the Imo State government has been described as a total fallacy which has caused more damages and loss to Imolites instead of gains.
A former Senior Special Adviser (SSA) to the Imo State government on security matters, High Chief Zeek Martins Nnadozie, made this statement recently, while speaking to Christian Voice on contemporary issues in his office in Owerri.
He said that the present administration under the watch of governor Rochas Okorocha has continued to cause more hardship to the people of Imo State in the name of urban renewal project, which according to him, has yielded no positive result.
The former government official strongly criticized most of governor Okorocha’s actions saying that they don’t mean well to Imolites and that Imo APC will be dissociated from him between now and the time of election.
He descended heavily on the state government for what he called improper extortion in the name of taxi painting and branding with stickers of a particular candidate.
Chief Nnadozie made cause for Imo pensioners who he said have been defrauded and teachers who are being owned several arrears of salaries.
He regretted that Imo State University which used to be the envy of other high institutions has lost accreditation of three quarters of their causes under the present administration.
The APC Chieftain condemned the high handedness and lack of transparency in handling of community projects such as demolition of markets or other structures, with particular reference to Nsu industry in Ehime Mbano which he said was carted away by the government and never replaced.
He however, expressed optimism that the 2019 general elections will afford Imo people the opportunity to choose a good leader who will correct the damages already caused by the present administration.
Chief Nnadozie therefore urged Imolites to go and get their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) and come out enmass during election to vote for the right candidate irrespective of party affiliation.
