Former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has expressed surprise over the constant attack on him and members of his family by his successor, Governor Hope Uzodinma.
Speaking to newsmen after meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday, Okorocha condemned the sealing of some of his properties.
“I am still waiting to understand the reason why all the attack because before, the allegation was that the money used in building was government money,” he said.
“Now it has changed; it is no longer the issue of government money, but that it is built on the green verge and allocation where government house was supposed to be built. I am still waiting and only time will tell.
“But let it be known that I was Rochas Okorocha before governor, and I am still Rochas Okorocha after governor. Government House never made me. I was who I was before becoming governor. Rather, I would say that becoming governor was a sacrifice on my own part.
“But talking about the properties in question — the schools, the East High College, Rochas Foundation College, the Royal Spring Palm Hotel and the university — these outfits are all charitable outfits for the Rochas Foundation. And I brought them back home as a sign of investment to encourage investment in my own state, where I come from.
“So, the allegation that it is built on the green verge or built where Government House was supposed to be built is neither here nor there. It is rather trying to make excuses to carry out an already planned attack.”
