Governor Uzodinma Refutes Rumours To Probe His Predecessors

Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has refuted wide-spread rumours that would probe his predecessors including Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha.

The governor, who made the disclosure during an on-the-spot inspection of property belonging to the Imo State government in the state capital, Owerri said even though the business of governance includes probing and accountability, his directive to the Accountant-General of the state and the officials of the civil service to furnish him with the financial statement of the state may have been misconstrued.

“When I asked for a status report from all the ministries, many people misunderstood it or assumed that the purpose of calling for that information is because I want to probe; I never said that I was going to probe anybody.

“The business of governance involves probing if need be; so I needed that information because there is no official handover from anybody, and for me to start the work, I need to know what is on the ground”, governor Uzodinma said.

He said since there’s been no proper handover from the immediate past government, if during an investigation and for proper accountability there’s need to call on anyone for questioning as it deems fit, the government will not hesitate to do so.
