MAN OF COURAGE! If You Have Proof I Am Stealing Money Please Come Forward With It, Okorocha Tells PDP

With all the accusations flying in against the Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, he has has finally come out to make a strong statement in order to prove his innocence.

Rochas Okorocha has posed a challenge to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),  to supply proof that his administration has borrowed cash from any bank; both inside and outside the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

In a statement released by Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, his Chief Press Secretary, the governor also charged any bank with a contrary claim to “openly indicate and provides details of such dealings for the general public to know”.

The governor gave financial establishments seven days ultimatum to overtly counter the claim if it is not true.

He alsoinsisted that his administration did not owe workers, adding that workers’ salaries have been paid up to the month of Feb 2019.

The statement reads: “We have come up with this position because the PDP is synonymous with falsehood and propaganda. And even as a party, if they know any bank the government of Rochas Okorocha has borrowed one naira from, they should mention such bank and state the particulars of the transaction so that interested persons can verify or forever, they should keep their mouths shut.

“Owing to Governor Okorocha’s monumental achievements, opponents of the administration have always erroneously concluded that he must have borrowed heavily from the banks. And that is the reason we are now stating openly that the Rescue Mission administration which Owelle Okorocha has superintended for almost eight years now has not borrowed money from any bank.”

Recall that Governor Rochas Okorocha, have been coming under attacks and facing ridicule from different quarters, following the withdrawal of his certificate of return by INEC, for the Imo West Senatorial Elections, after he was initially announced as the winner of the polls.

He was also placed on suspension by his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), for anti party activities after he chose to support his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, who left the APC to run for the Governorship post under the Action Alliance, AA.

Unfortunately for them both, the sacrifice by Okorocha was not worth it as Nwosu ended up losing the Governorship elections to Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
