Immediate past governor of Imo, Rochas Okorocha, has been given till midnight of Tuesday (today) to completely handover all government property his government utilized on behalf of the people to the state.
The order was given to Okorocha by the state’s new governor, Emeka Ihedioha, who said all the property should be handed over to the newly inaugurated Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Uche Onyeagucha, and Chief of Staff of Imo State Government, Chris Okewulonu.
He gave the ultimatum at the Government House, Owerri, when Onyeagucha, and Okewulonu were sworn-in as SSG and the State Chief of Staff respectively.
The new governor said the Permanent Secretary and Head of Service under Okorocha should right away get ready all the necessary documents and hand them over to Onyeagucha and Okewulonu before the deadline.
He reiterated that Okorocha messed up Imo State Government House and called on anybody that cares, to come see what the place currently looks like.
“I directed the Head of Service and Permanent Secretary to ensure a complete handover of all government property the last administration utilized on behalf of IMO people to the Secretary to The Government and Chief of Staff of Imo State Government. I want the process to be completed by midnight tomorrow (today),” Ihedioha said.
Ihedioha after inauguration on May 29, had started his first day in office on May 30, by pooling down some of the supposed monuments Okorocha erected including Akachi (The hand of ‘god’).
