Okorocha Cries Out, Says Ihedioha Is Demolishing His Statues

– I Have Not Been Arrested



I'm Destined To Win 2023 Presidential Election - Okorocha

The immediate past governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha on Thursday said that neither he nor his wife had been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) contrary to what he said were the claims of his successor, Governor Emeka Ihedioha.

Speaking through his special adviser on media, Sam Onwuemedo, the former governor also accused his successor of commencing on the demolition of statues erected by his administration. Statues of world statesmen were among the legacies that Okorocha left behind in office when he stepped down from office last Monday.

“The fact is that the new PDP government in the State has decided not to toe the path of honour but has decided to continue the old way of the party, by trading on lies or falsehood. They call it propaganda. The new government is behind the false story. They even called some media editors to make the story headline.

“We only want to ask them to leave responsible institutions or establishments like EFCC out of their dirty tracks especially in dishing out their lies.

“The PDP in the State had written and sponsored a lot of petitions to agencies and Commissions against the former governor. They had told their supporters that the former governor would be whisked away by the EFCC hours after the inauguration on May 29, 2019 and that is the reason behind this falsehood.

“We Contend that EFCC is a National Institution and established by the law of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. If they invite the former governor or the wife or any member of his family for interrogation in the course of their investigation, arising from the PDP’s Petitions they would honour such invitations. And if the Commission decides to also come for any reason, they are also on the right path since it is on a national assignment.

“So, the PDP or any other group or persons should not give the EFCC the image of an enemy to the people. They should not be dragging EFCC into their dirty politics. The Commission is not at war with anybody and they PDP should not create that impression about the Commission.

“We want to also use this opportunity to inform the general public that 24hrs after inauguration, the new PDP government in the State carried out its first assignment on Thursday, May 30, 2019 (today) by demolishing “Akachi” (the symbolic hand of God) erected by the former governor. This is suspicious. They have also changed the Imo Trade and Investment Centre to “Ahiajoku”. The former governor had taken certain steps to bring Imo people more closer to God. We have also heard that they want to close the Government House Chapel. In all these we only want to say “Time will Tell”.
