Okorocha Did Not Hand Document Over To Me –Ihedioha
Imo State Governor , Emeka Ihedioha , on Friday said that his predecessor , Rochas Okorocha, did not hand any document over to him .
Ihedioha’ s Special Adviser on Media , Steve Osuji, told Saturday PUNCH that Okorocha left the Government House without any “ documentary record ” .
He said , “ The immediate past governor did not hand any documentary evidence , paper or record over to the new governor .
“ Governor Emeka Ihedioha went to Government House for the first time today ( Friday ) and I can tell you that the place is in a bad shape . There is nothing to show that the former governor handed anything over to his successor .”
Asked how many official vehicles Okorocha handed to Ihedioha, Osuji said, “ There is no record so I can ’t tell you how many official vehicles the former governor left behind . ”
The immediate past Secretary to the State Government , Mark Uchendu , had said that Okorocha properly handed over to his successor .
But he was unable to say how many official vehicles Okorocha handed over to Ihedioha.
In the same vein , Osuji said that the new administration in Imo State would comply with the June 1 deadline for the implementation of the directive banning state governors from managing local government funds.
Osuji , who said the Ihedioha- led administration would abide with the directive issued by the Nigerian Governors Forum, said , “ The governors are working under the platform of the NGF and I know that the Imo State Government would abide by any agreement reached by the body .
“ I am not entirely speaking for the state government but the governors preferred to work as a group on the auspices of NGF .
“ It is a constitutional thing and the governors prefer to address the issue as a group .”
