Re-Chairmen Seek Okorocha’s Probe On N57b Council Cash

PRESS STATEMENT

The attention of Imo State Government has been drawn to a fabricated
story carried by the Nation Newspaper captioned “Chairmen seek
Okorocha’s probe on N57b Council Cash”
The story in its entirety is a misrepresentation of facts and a figment of imagination of both the author and purported source of the
story.
In as much as the state government doesn’t intend to join issues with
the former PDP Council Chairmen whose tenure has already expired, the
government will not fold its arms and allow Imolites fed with
falsehood.
In the first instance, the purported figure quoted in the publication
is not a true reflection of the situation on ground. Imo people are
witnesses to the monumental projects completed in the 27 LGAs of the
state and ongoing ones. These projects include the multi-billion Naira new General Hospitals in the 27 LGAs, massive construction of 24
kilometer rural roads in each of the local government areas and
agricultural revolution embarked upon in all the LGA of the state.
It is worthy to mention that the state government led by His
Excellency Owelle Rochas Okorocha has remained accountable to the
people who are not in doubt of his administration commitment to
provide the basic infrastructural needs of the populace.
For the avoidance of doubt, the former PDP Council Chairmen lack the
competence to discuss JAAC Meeting and disbursement of Council funds
since their two year tenure expired on August 8, 2012. This is even
as their suit seeking for tenure elongation was dismissed by Justice
Ngozi Opara of an Owerri High Court.
It is on record that His Excellency, Owelle Rochas Okorocha is running
an open administration and has nothing whatsoever to hide.
Against the backdrop of the erroneous impression created in some
quarters by some disgruntled element, that activities in the 27 LGAs
are being stalled, the state government wishes to state emphatically
that various activities including developmental projects are moving on
smoothly under the custody of the Directors of Administration and
General Services [DAGS] who are presently in charge of the activities
of the councils pending the conduct of the local government election.
However, media practitioners are advised to cross-check their facts
before publication to avoid misinforming the unsuspecting members of
the public thereby over-heating the prevailing peaceful atmosphere in
the state.
