Governor Emeka Ihedioha of Imo State has accused Senator Rochas Okorocha (APC-Imo West) of seeking cheap publicity.
Naija News recalls that Okorocha had accused the governor of harassing his wife and family.
The immediate past Imo governor also asked Ihedioha to stop running the state as if he was still a lawmaker.
Reacting in a statement through his Chief of Staff, Chris Okewulonu, Ihedioha told the lawmaker to shut up and return all government properties and monies, he and members of his family allegedly siphoned.
He accused the former governor of leaving the state in a deplorable socio-economic political condition due to his visionless style of administration.
Okewulonu said that “95% of the projects Okorocha claimed to have executed in Imo are either sub-standard or exist in his own imagination. Within a short time, Ihedioha’s achievements would dumbfound Okorocha and his hirelings. The governor will not be distracted by the tantrums of a failure like Okorocha.
“I advise Okorocha to shut and stop disgracing himself further. He messed up Imo and left office in ignominy.
“Let him and his cronies first return all government properties and monies they illegally carted away before having the temerity to attempt blackmailing a government that is barely three weeks old. He who seeks for equity must first come with clean hands.”
“Okorocha’s hands are very dirty and he cannot, therefore, criticize Governor Ihedioha known for excellence in service delivery.”
