Traditional rulers in Imo State, under the aegis of Imo State Council of Traditional Rulers have thrown their weight behind the Imo state governor EMeka Ihedioha as he gets set to probe ex Governor, Rochas Okorocha.
According to the New Agency of Nigeria, NAN, the Chairman of the council, Eze Samuel Ohiri, made this known to newsmen on Wednesday, at the end of an emergency meeting of the council where the resolution was taken.
Eze Samuel said the immediate past Governor must be probed after the Council had taken a critical examination of the situation of Imo.
He further said the latest discovery that Okorocha allegedly spent N10 billion to build police headquarters called for serious probe.
“After the emergency meeting of all the traditional rulers, we resolved to encourage Ihedioha to ensure that all the government properties illegally acquired by the former governor and his cronies were recovered to Imo.
“We also want to use this opportunity to call on the Inspector General of Police to return the money used in building the police headquarters.
“Imo does not have money to spend on Federal Government’s project,” adding that “FG is supposed to show its presence in Imo, not Imo building projects for FG.
“Okorocha has finished his tenure as governor and we are calling on him to allow Ihedioha to govern the state without distractions,” He said
