Okorocha blasts Ohakim, warns him to stop his campaign of calumny

www.odogwublog.com reports that Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has said that he would no longer respond to the letters written by his immediate predecessor, Chief Ikedi Ohakim,according to him, his letters are campaign of calumny against him, adding that he does not mean well for the state.

Governor Okorocha who was reacting to the recent letter written to him by Ohakim maintained that his achievements have surpassed that of the former governor and all other governors that have governed the state before him.

Responding through a press statement by his chief press secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo he said "The truth is that we can no longer afford to be spending our projects-oriented time replying the Former Governor. If he meant well, he should have been coming to meet with his successor to discuss issues as stakeholders in the state, instead of this campaign of calumny"

Continuing he said " When he wrote the first letter and raised certain issues, we responded by publishing the monumental achievements of Rochas Okorocha in less than six years as governor, which took several pages and we were able to name the projects and their locations and also took that opportunity to show that Chief Ohakim’s outing as governor was never a success story. He never reacted to say we had told lies because he knew we were on the sides of truth and posterity"

"We do not know how Chief Ohakim feels today when he enters Owerri and sees that it has become a new city with eight-lane roads, in-land roads, tunnels and flyovers, and even the new Government House that had shanties when he held sway. Infact, in an ideal clime, Chief Ohakim should be celebrating Rochas Okorocha for achieving so much or doing the things he didn’t think about during his time"

Governor Okorocha while responding to the claims of Ohakim on the reinstatement of Eze Cletus Ilomuanya he said "He talked about Dr. Cletus Ilomuanya, and we have repeatedly challenged anybody in possession of any Court Judgment reinstating him as the traditional ruler of Obinugwu community after his removal and a new Eze installed, to publish the judgment but all to avail. It has only become a blackmail tool. And the former governor deposed an Eze, HRH Eze Ohanweh for just expressing sympathy for Senator Ifeanyi Ararume"

He further affirmed that the former governor has also found COREN as a blackmail platform. Governor Okorocha insists that the flyovers built by his Rescue Mission Government are of high standard or quality and were handled by reputable companies. According to the statement "If they were sincere, they would have first commended the governor for the two gigantic flyovers, and then come up with whatever could be their argument. And their talking about EFCC or ICPC on issue like that, speaks volume of where they were coming from and where they intend to go"

While commenting on Ohakim's disagreement that his administration has surpassed others he said "The former governor admitted that Rochas has done exceptionally well and we are proud of that, when he wrote, “I marvel each time you are reported as saying that your achievements surpass those of all the 13 previous governors put together. Exactly what do you mean? Are you aware that the combined current balance of all revenues that have accrued to your administration in only six years is in excess of N982 billion”. In other words, the former governor admitted that the governor has excessively and extensively worked. And he was only trying to offer an excuse for the ugly tale of his own outing-by talking about revenues which can also be verified to show he was not factual"
