Governor Rochas Okorocha, has described Imolites as “very difficult to govern”, following a plethora of petitions and scathing opposition coming from several quarters.
Chief Okorocha gave the verdict when he had a breakfast meeting with members of Independent Newspaper Publishers Association, INPA, in Government House, Owerri.
He lamented that despite massive road construction, his free education to the tertiary level, construction of general hospitals in the 27 local council areas, all geared towards uplifting the welfare of the citizenry, “some people are still not appreciative of my efforts”.
The Governor sympathized with former governors Achike Udenwa and Chief Ikedi Ohakim over what they passed through while in office and came to the conclusion that “Imo people are very difficult to govern”.
Continuing, Chief Okorocha expressed shock that rather than partner with him in developing the state, some people busy themselves with waging battles at all costs against him.
He recalled what his administration passed through in the hands of Owerri people when he wanted to build a hospitality industry in the disputed Area K, World Bank Housing Estate, Owerri, stressing that the project has now been transferred to Oguta.
