Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu, former Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) national convention committee has hinted on the possibility of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, going after the Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha in 2019.
Uwajumogu, who recently resigned from the committee, stated that Imo state has become “a massive basket of fraud” under the leadership of Okorocha.
He maintained that the governor has a lot of questions to answer.
Speaking with Vanguard, Uwajumogu highlighted some projects the governor claimed to have executed but with nothing to show.
According to the lawmaker, “Governor Okorocha had threatened to leave the party if the congresses were not reversed. The congresses were not reversed. He threatened to leave after the local government congresses and the congresses results were accepted. He threatened to leave after the state congress and that was also accepted.
“Now, I hear he has threatened to leave if my position was not taken… This started more than two weeks ago and it is just a coincidence that I had made up my mind to leave at this time and I am just hoping that now that I have left, he will return to Owerri where he was voted to do the job because he has abandoned his duties.
“He has 27 general hospitals that he claims to have completed but I understand that they have been overtaken by weeds. He has 1, 000km of road that has created huge erosion in various communities in Imo state.
“In fact, the only functional hospital that we have, a specialist hospital, he willed it to himself and today that hospital is not functional. So today, Imo State is a massive basket of fraud and I am very sure that the EFCC have their records on him and we will wait for them to do the needful by the time he leaves this position because I am sure that he has a lot of questions to answer.”
