Ex-Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has reacted to the order by his successor, Hope Uzodinma, to probe the financial status of the state from May 2010.

Okorocha made this known in a tweet on Thursday, however, adding that he won’t accept abuse of power.

“Let me reiterate that I have nothing against being probed,” Okorocha said.

“What I did not agree with was the attempt to misuse power to harass and intimidate me or any of my supporters.”

Uzodinma had given the order on Wednesday while delivering his inaugural speech.

He also ordered all the permanent secretaries of all the ministries in the state to forward to him the status of all the contracts awarded, while halting the payment for all ongoing contracts.

The former governors who ruled the state within the time span are Ikedi Ohakim (2007-2011), Okorocha (2011-2019) and Emeka Ihedioha (May 2019-Jan 2020).

“My government shall be anchored on reconstruction, rehabilitation and recovery. Every Imo person shall have a say in my government,” Uzodinma had said.

“My doors are wide open. I forgive those who conspired to rob me of my hard-earned mandate. Let us work hard to make Imo the pride of Nigeria.

“I  hereby direct the Accountant General of the State to within four days forward to me the comprehensive financial status of the State from May 2010 till date.

“I also direct the Permanent Secretaries of all the Ministries to within the same period forward the status of the contracts awarded within the time frame. Payment of all ongoing contracts is hereby stopped.”
