IMO GOVT. TO CLEAR PENSIONS
-As Governor Okorocha Commissions 500 Pieces Of Urban Taxi Cabs

Governor Rochas Okorocha has announced that the State Government has concluded plan to pay off all the pension arrears without further delay and explained that the delay in the payment of pensions was as a result of the astonishing rise in what the state was paying as pension.

Governor Okorocha gave the hint while commissioning 500 pieces of urban taxi cabs on Thursday, November 10, 2016 in Owerri explaining that by 2011 when he came in as governor, the state was paying N280 million at the end of each month as pensions but all of a sudden, the amount skyrocketed to N1.4 billion which has made it somewhat difficult for the state to pay considering also the salary burden of the state and what comes in as allocations.

He however remarked that part of the reason for the rise could be that most of the workers who returned from the old East Central State and other places to the state when the state was created in1976 must have retired, vis-a-vis the problems of ghost pensioners and padding, assuring that his government has decided to take the bull by the horn by paying off the pensions.

His words, “the state has no problem with the payment of workers in the state. We have paid salary upto the month of October. Any worker in the state who claims that he or she has not been paid upto October or that he or she is owed salary is a thief. Our only challenge now is the issue of pension. And we have resolved to deal with the issue once and for all. I do not want to owe these senior citizens in my time. We are going to get them paid”.

Commissioning the taxi cabs, Governor Okorocha said the government has embarked on the Imo taxi scheme in the spirit of job creation and urban renewal policies of the administration, and stated that the scheme would offer Imo youths jobs both directly and indirectly.

According to the governor, with the level of development in the state, it would not be good for visitors or tourists to the state to be moving in old cabs, and that with the beautification of Owerri, the State Capital and the urban renewal initiatives of the administration, the government decided to procure the taxi cabs, starting with the 500 pieces available for commissioning.

He said more five hundred pieces will soon be procured, and also recalled that the government had recently commissioned some buses to for Owerri the State capital and environs, all in line with the desire of the government to develop the state.

He asked for the cooperation and understanding of Imo people.

I don't know why Igbos hate this illustrious son of theirs and praise Azikwe and Ojukwu.

Rochas is simply following their footsteps, Azikwe once allied with the north and was a supporter of one Nigeria.

Ojukwu was a member of NPN, Okorocha is a member of APC, why the hate?

Putting the cart before the horse...

Where are the good roads, is it the one filled with refuse or the daily bad roads owerri citizens pass through daily?

The cost of 500 cars would tar a good number of roads for people to ply.

They have just created expense heads to steal money..

We are able to use tokunbo cars of 150k mileage because their roads are great. But a brand new cars looks dead in nigeria in a space of 2yrs.

Priotize properly.

And his face just has to be on it. Can the National assembly pan the inscription of pictures of politicians on any government owned project. This is absurd to say the least. Okorocha is very guilty of this.

Nice one Rochas
Re: Okorocha Commissions 500 Urban Taxi Cabs(photos) by Flets: 12:48pm On Nov 11, 2016
Folks who know Okorocha understands he is always up to something. Its funny that with a 3 year pension burden, over 8 months salary arrears, totally collapsed infrastructure (especially roads).... he embarked on these misplaced frauds.

First, there are no 500 cars anywhere even the pics prove it. Secondly, none of these cars will be on the road in two months. Okorocha only subsidized cars for his friends who will pick up and repaint for personal use in less than a month.
