Okorocha Cautions Ihedioha Against Threats, Unguarded Utterances



Outgoing Imo State governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has warned the governor-elect, Emeka Ihedioha and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to refrain from issuing threats and making unguarded utterances.

Okorocha said that aside from making allegations of looting against his administration, a government functionary with her official vehicle was recently molested by some youths in a branded PDP bus along Mbaise Road, Owerri.

In a statement issued yesterday by his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, the governor said that the call became necessary as nobody could say what such actions would lead to in the event of any response from his supporters.

Onwuemeodo argued that Okorocha had run the most disciplined and truthful administration in the history of the state, with appointees of the government not known for bogus life-style or ostentatious living and that “nobody in the government can be associated with looting. In fact, what these PDP people are known for, is what they are imagining for others.

“We have also read the release by Ihedioha’s media aide telling civil servants in the state to stop taking directives from the government or they would be ‘dealt with’.

“They specifically mentioned those in the Ministry of Lands and warned them to stop issuing certificates of occupancy (Cs of O). Let’s quickly point out that ‘dealt with’ is not the language of democracy.

It was the language of the military. And for Ihedioha to be applying it only gives insight on what is to come,” he said..
