IMO STATE BLOG.com can confirm that as you read this, Chief Ohakim is going about his business freely in Abuja contrary to a report that he was confined within the four corners of an EFCC cell .
The immediate past governor was swift to deny rumours of his alleged arrest bythe EFCC over the N62 Billion “fraud” contained in a recent audited report by the Imo State Government.
A local news paper in the State had reported that EFCC picked up the former Governor to answer questions based on the audited report. Dismissing the report as a figment of the reporters mind, he explained that before leaving office, he took time to prepare a 300-page handover note with a 22 page summary which he personally handed over to his successor, Governor Rochas Okorocha.
According to His Excellency, the handover document listed the 900 water schemes and other projects which were initiated and completed by his administration in four years. For the record, he also mentioned that the abandoned Isiekenesi-Osina road awarded by the Sam Mbakwe administration in 1983 was completed during his tenure. With regards to the Internally Generated Revenue for the state, he explained that the funds were collected by a Bank and remitted to the respective 27 local government councils monthly.
So, in response to the incumbent administrations claim that he barely completed more than 3 projects during his 4 year tenure, the former governor did not mince once when he fired back.
“For Okorocha to say that my administration barely managed to complete two or three projects during my tenure is a sure proof that he never read, has refused to read, or did not understand what I put down in the handover document”
