The immediate past governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has faulted the petition against him sent to the Inspector General of Police by the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party.
The PDP had accused Okorocha of making inciting comments against Governor Emeka Ihedioha’s administration while addressing his supporters during his return to the state last Tuesday. The party urged the IGP to call the former governor to order.
Okorocha in a statement by his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, however urged the IGP to disregard the letter, claiming that the PDP in the state is confused. He noted that the government had openly sworn to step on the toes of its predecessor.
Okorocha added that the Ihedioha-led government had also declared war against Imo people perhaps for rejecting them at the poll in 2011, 2015 and even 2019, noting that in 2019, INEC declared the PDP winner with more than half of Ihedioha’s votes coming from only three Local Governments out of the 27 LGAs.
He said this led to the destruction of properties build with Imo people’s money including the Flyovers, Tunnels, Waterfalls, Universities amongst others. Okorocha alleged that crimes and criminality had resurfaced in the state since the assumption of the present administration totally opposite of what was obtainable for the eight years he governed the State.
