Governor Rochas Okorocha, has lamented the high rate of damages rainfall in Imo State has caused his administration.
The governor who said the rainfall has destroyed almost all the road projects in the state, wondered ‘if the rainfall are acidic’.
Okorocha stated this on Monday during the swearing ceremony of Mr. Mark Uchendu, as the new Secretary to the Government of Imo state, 9 permanent secretaries and others by the acting solicitor Ministry of Justice, Chinyere Ibeh who represented Attorney General of Imo State.
Speaking during the ceremony, Okorocha said; “let me tell you the remaining 7 months left for me I will do the same I did in 7 years in office”.
“I am sorry for some of you who say that I have destroyed all the roads. It is because of the unprecedented rainfall. I wonder if the rains are acidic. I assure you that we will put them in order.
“I want to assure you that my people empowerment programme will kick off. It will start with the first names that will be submitted by the traditional rulers of our communities. My government is a government of the poor. I have come to save the lives of numerous poor Ndimo.
“We are going to begin to let our people know the projects we had done since the inception of this administration. What I am doing is to lay the foundation for any governor that will come into Imo state.
Describing his former chief of staff, Uche Nwosu as the incoming governor, Okorocha said; “When Uche Nwosu, becomes the governor, he will have no business building roads and developing the Owerri urban cities. Today, Uche Nwosu is the immediate past chief of staff, I pray that one day, I will shake you as the immediate past governor of Imo state.”
In his vote of thanks on behalf of the appointees, the SSG, Uchendu said: “I can’t not express all my happiness. All I can do is to give you assurance. If is a gene that no governor can transmit power properly to his successor I will break the gene.
“Udenwa did not and Ohakim did not. I will put my life and blood to see that I break that gene. Anybody that cannot deliver his ward has no business to be here.
If we cannot deliver Nwosu, then we have not done justice to the rescue mission. If you are a commissioner there is no need that you do not go to church in your area. We will go to the churches, villages to engage the opposition. We have the stories that can destroy what they are doing.”
