2015: Ohakim asks Imo people for forgiveness; begs for second term.


Our immediate-past governor, Ikedi Ohakim, is asking us to forgive him for ANY SIN he may have committed against us – knowingly or unknowingly. He has also restated that he leftN40 billion in the state treasury in 2011, which he alleged has vanished.

This was just as he denied ever owing mansions in Ow­erri or abroad as alleged by Governor Rochas Okorocha, stating that it was part of the campaign of calumny against his person.

He urged the people of Imo State to ask Governor Okoro­cha what he had done with the N40 billion which his adminis­tration handed over to him.

“I left N13.2 billion in the UBA account but this money, as I am talking to you today, has vanished. This is apart from the N26.8 billion I left in various bank accounts and which I handed over to Gov­ernor Rochas Okorocha before leaving office, and I think that the people of Imo State should ask the governor what he has done with that huge funds,” Ohakim said.

The former governor, who also dismissed allegations that he flogged a Catholic priest and journalists during the 2011 electioneering, expressed gratitude to God that the truth had eventually surfaced with the unfolding situations in the state.

He denied ever having man­sions in the state or abroad.

“Governor Okorocha has alleged that I have many man­sions in Owerri and abroad, but for three years now, they have not been able to prove their allegation. Don’t forget that the commissioner for land and urban development is the son-in-law of Okorocha; so, it was just part of the diversion­ary tactics of Okorocha,” he said.

Ohakim expressed his de­sire to return to Government House to complete his tenure as provided by the constitu­tion, but was quick to add that his party’s decision was para­mount and promised to abide by any decision taken by his party.

Meanwhile, Ohakim has apologised to the street trad­ers and the school teachers who were disengaged due to alleged falsification of cer­tificates even though most of them were campaigning for the present government.

Ndi Imo, what do you have to say?
