Immediate past governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha has labelled the current administration of Governor Emeka Ihediora as WhatsApp and Facebook Givernment.
This was in reaction to the claim by the Ihediora administration that the Okorochas looted the state treasury, carting away money and cars.
However, the former governor has given his successor seven days to show proof that he looted the state while he held sway.
The media had quoted the chairman of Governor Emeka Ihedioha’s Committee on Recovery of Government Properties, Mr. Jasper Ndubuaku, claiming that Okorocha and his wife Nneoma Nkechi Okorocha, left with 67 vehicles and N50 billion.
Okorocha, in a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Sam Onwuemeodo, said, “Against the backdrop of these repeated claims, we want to respond in this manner: “We challenge Governor Emeka Ihedioha and his appointees to publish the list and particulars of these 67 vehicles and the details of the N50 billion the former governor and wife made away with, vis-à-vis other items thereto. And we give them 7 days to do the publication or bend their heads downward in shame. “We also challenge them to publish the properties the former appointees must have left with, either as a group or as individuals. The burden to publish evidence of all these claims is now on Governor Ihedioha and his appointees.
“We equally want to ask that they harmonize their claims because almost all the key appointees of the WhatsApp and Facebook government in the state have made their diverse claims on these issues, to the extent that nobody knows who among them should be believed. They should harmonize their claims before the publication.” Okorocha decried the various claims of some members of the administration, including the governor who claimed about cars and N70 billion were taken away. The chief of staff of the governor had equally claimed that the former governor left with 31 vehicles and about N40 billion.
