Gover­nor in Zuma statue row ‘the worst’

Mail & Guardian - - Comment & Analysis -

Imo state gover­nor Rochas Oko­rocha’s govern­ment is sus­tained on undi­luted and un­in­tel­li­gently con­cocted lies (“Nige­rian govern­ment faces crit­i­cism over ‘em­bar­rass­ing’ Zuma statue”, Oc­to­ber 16, Mail & Guardian On­line). He has plunged Imo into a bot­tom­less pit of poverty and mis­ery. The govern­ment now prides it­self on sign­posts and goofy stat­ues. Shame!

Ask Oko­rocha what he has achieved and he will show you the ru­ined city of Ow­erri. He has not con­ducted coun­cil elec­tions for more than six years, mak­ing him the worst gover­nor in Imo his­tory.

If we don’t have coun­cil govern­ment, where are the more than 100-bil­lion naira in coun­cil funds and more than 70-bil­lion naira be­long­ing to the Imo State Oil-Pro­duc­ing Area De­vel­op­ment Com­mis­sion?

May God pre­serve us from self-cen­tred politi­cians who wish sim­ply to ad­vance their stom­achs.
