Okorocha, Madumere rift deepens … As Dep. Gov alleges sabotage

The Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, has accused Gov. Rochas Okorocha of hatching a plot to sabotage and stagnate his office, thereby rendering him ineffective and inefficient in his constitutional duties.
This was contained in a press release signed by the Deputy Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Uche Onwuchekwa, where it was alleged that the alternative power source to the Maumere’s office had been cut off and the generator removed.
According to the release, staff in the Deputy Governor’s office no longer function effectively when there is no electricity.
According to the release, the office of the number two citizen of the state is concerned with what it described as administrative recklessness of Governor Okorocha, accusing him of administering Imo government house as a personal estate, thereby bringing the image of the state to disrepute.
The release also revealed that the office of the Deputy Governor was never informed of the reason for removing the power generating set.
It reads further: “Government as institution should not be viewed from the spectacle of the occupier or the driver. It is very appalling to note that for whatever reason that a governor could literarily shut down the office of the number two citizen of the state.
