Imo is debt free – Oko­rocha

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From John kennedy Uzoma, Ow­erri

Gover­nor Rochas Oko­rocha of Imo State has said that come 2019, his suc­ces­sor will in­herit a debt-free state.

Speak­ing at the NUJ Press Cen­tre, Ow­erri, yes­ter­day, Oko­rocha said that he has set­tled the loans bor­rowed by the state gov­ern­ment.

He said the only loan that re­mained un­set­tled was the bailout fund given the state by the fed­eral gov­ern­ment and struc­tured to be paid in 20 years.

Oko­rocha de­scribed the PDP-led ad­min­is­tra­tion as the worst thing that ever hap­pened to Nige­ria and ap­pealed to the cit­i­zens to con­tinue to sup­port Pres­i­dent Buhari’s courage to fight cor­rup­tion.

“I am happy pres­i­dent Buhari has the courage to fight cor­rup­tion,” he said, call­ing on the peo­ple of Imo State to buy into the vi­sion of his ad­min­is­tra­tion aimed at bring­ing change.
