Uzodinma meets Buhari, demands refund of N32bn spent on federal projects

IMO GUBER: Uzodinma has tough words for Okorocha

Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, on Thursday held a closed-door meeting with President Mohammed Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

At the meeting, the governor demanded the refund of over N32billion his predecessors – Rochas Okorocha and Emeka Ihedioha – spent on roads and other Federal Government’s projects in the state.

Uzodinma told State House correspondents after the meeting, he raised the issue with the President because the state was “financially distressed.”
