By Sylvanus Okpe

Immediate past Governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has asked that his successor, Emeka Ihedioha, the Commissioner for Justice, Ndukwe Nnawuchi (SAN), and the chairman, Recovery of Moveable Assets, Jasper Ndubuaku, apologise to him over allegations levelled against him and his associates that he carted away state government’s property worth over N50 billion and incurred garnishee debts of N20 billion.

The demand was made via a statement made available to the press yesterday by his Special Adviser (Media), Sam Onwuemeodo.

Okorocha, who is currently representing Imo West senatorial district in the upper chambers of the National assembly, said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governor had failed to publish details of the items and debts, despite his calls that the alleged stolen properties be published for all to see.

He said: “The PDP government in the state had, through the chairman of its committee on recovery of public properties, Mr Jasper Ndubuaku, told the world at a press conference that the former governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha, and wife, Nneoma Nkechi Okorocha, had taken away 67 vehicles and N50 billion.

“The same day, the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Ndukwe Nnawuchi, also told the media that the former governor had incurred N20 billion garnishee orders which have now fallen on the shoulder of the government on a seat at the moment.

“We challenged Ndubuaku to publish the particulars of the 67 vehicles and details of the N50 billion Okorocha and the wife made away with. And we gave them seven days to do that.

“We also challenged the attorney general to make the particulars of the cases that occasioned the garnishee orders, for Nigerians to see whether it was Okorocha’s administration that attracted them or the PDP governments in the state from 1999 to 2011.

“It is unfortunate that till now or more than two weeks after, the elements concerned have refused or failed to show Nigerians cause to believe them with regard to their claims.

“We cannot keep quiet in the face of such bogus allegations, especially when the PDP government in the state now has shown an unbridled penchant for blackmail, propaganda and lies.”
