Imo Liberation Movement challenges Okorocha to Publish Imo accounts

www.odogwublog.com reports that a socio-political group, Imo Liberation Movement has joined the fray demanding that Governor Rochas Okorocha should publish the full account dealings of Imo State for the past six years or face their wrath.
Director General of the group, Dr. Ogechi Ikpemo gave the charge while addressing journalists shortly after an enlarged executive meeting held in Owerri, at the weekend.
According to him, the group will no longer tolerate a situation where Governor Okorocha acts as though Imo State is his personal firm.
"We have tolerated this government's gross secrecy as it concerns critical issues of governance particularly the finances of the state. A situation where the governor acts as if he is presiding the affairs of Rochas Foundation will no longer be acceptable going forward. As an elected person, he is bound by the principles of social contract such as accountability, transparency, equity, justice and fairness", he said.
He noted that well meaning citizens of Imo State have at different times asked the Governor to render the accounts of the state but have been continuously rebuffed.
Rather, he said the government hurls insults at respected citizens for daring to express their opinion.
Ikpemo said "the Telemundo approach of this government must stop. Imo Liberation Movement will not relent in our effort to bring this government to accountability, because the state deserve better governance than the mockery of democracy that has become a norm in the state".
According to him, the Imo Liberation Movement is a group that will midwife the needed change in the State and disclosed that the group has commenced an aggressive sensitization and mobilisation of all the sectors of the state to confront the anomalies in the State.
He appealed to Imo citizens to be brave as they liberate the state from the shackles of ineptitude, fraud, deceit and recover the destiny of the state with a view to rebuilding the state of our dream, saying though it is a herculean task, they are ready for the challenges.
