EMEKA IHEDIOHA to rOCHAS oKOROCHA: The Innocent Has Nothing To Be Afraid Of.

rOCHAS oKOROCHA.

Imo State Governor, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, has advised his predecessor, Rochas Okorocha not to loose sleep over the recent Constitution of a Judicial Panel of Inquiry to probe all land transactions in the State from the period Achike Udenwa governed the State till date.


Reacting to allegations and claims made by former Governor Okorocha that the Judicial Panel of Inquiry is aimed at witch hunting him, the Governor said it has become the pattern of the former Governor to resort to making several petty allegations and reechoing his usual lullaby that he has been a target of witch hunt, saying he has deliberately avoided the ploy of the former Governor to drag his administration to the level of exchange of words in an attempt to seek cheap relevance in the media.

Ihedioha therefore reminded his predecessor that the good people of Imo State had already evaluated his performance and their verdict is outright condemnation of his irresponsive and irresponsible misgovernance characterized by the unprecedented plundering of the State treasury, making it clear once again that he has no intention whatsoever to witch hunt the former Governor or anybody for that matter in the state.

Emeka Ihedioha explained that the timely constitution of the Judicial Inquiry on Lands and other related matters is driven by the ceaseless complaints, petitions and lamentations by citizens of the state of impunity, irregularities and deliberate distortions of the original master plan of the State, wondering how former Governor Okorocha arrived at the unfounded allegations that the panel is on a witch hunt when the inquiry dates back to Chief Achike Udenwa's administration.

He stated that one may not be wrong to believe that there could be more to such panic reaction from the former Governor even when the Panel is yet to fully commence it's assignment, maintaining that he is not unaware of the fact that the incessant vituperation and abuses by the former Governor is targeted at distracting him with a view of derailing the Rebuilding process in the State and for the umpteenth time, he is not on a vendetta mission but on a Rebuild Mission of the State, assuring that no amount of childish tantrums will reverse the trend.

Governor Ihedioha says that his administration is on course and cannot be distracted or derailed by such mindless and unfounded allegations which of course are poorly rehearsed and diversionary stunts intended to pull wool over the eyes of Imo people and Nigerians in general, expressing his resolve to subject to judicious scrutiny, every action that violated the people and the extant laws of the land which is iron clad, stating that the innocent has nothing to fear.
