Okorocha to probe Ohakim's administration

07 September 2012, 10:22

Imo - The Secretary to the Imo Government, Prof. Anthony Anwuka, said on Thursday that Gov. Rochas Okorocha would probe the administration of former Gov. Ikedi Ohakim.

Anwuka, who made the announcement at a News Conference in Owerri, said that Okorocha's administration was perfecting plans for the probe, which he said, would commence soon.

Okorocha of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) took over from Ohakim of the PDP on May 29 last year.

Anwuka said that Okorocha needed to probe the past administration which, according to him, embezzled billions of naira belonging to the people.

He said that the present administration had since cleared all the debt it inherited from the past administration but did not state the amount involved.

On state police, the scribe said that the country’s security challenges would be better tackled if states had their police.

He argued that if states were allowed to have their police and governors democratically elected, the governors would have no need to manipulate the police as some people had feared.

 Anwuka expressed optimism that the current crisis in APGA would soon be resolved, saying that in resolving it, some party bigwigs would sacrifice their interests.

The secretary said that the State Government had in the past one year, performed well in various sectors.

He assured that most of the road projects being executed in the state would be completed by December this year.
