Okorocha: I Became Poorer Being A Governor by fergie0o1: 12:06am On May 17, 2021
A former governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has denied the allegations that he acquired properties with government funds.

He explained that he had always been a successful person before coming into office in 2011 and dared anyone to come forth with evidence that he mismanaged funds meant for the government.

“I challenge anybody to prove that I acquired any property with any government fund,” said the former who was a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

He added, “I think people have forgotten that I was Rochas before becoming the governor of Imo State; I think they have forgotten completely.

“If anything, becoming a governor made me even poorer than what I was in the past. I don’t know whether I acquired any property here in Abuja, there is none.”

Okorocha, who now represents Imo West senatorial district in the National Assembly, believes those making the allegation are referring to a hotel that belongs to his wife and is used to fund their foundation.

According to him, there is no way he would have stole the government’s money when its monthly allocation is small.

The lawmaker stated that during his two-term as governor, he built the best international cargo airport and police state command in the country, as well as 27 hospitals, a new government house, a new court, and a new prison, among others.

He also spoke about his encounter with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over the same issue, noting that he spent two nights when he was arrested.

“I said to them (EFCC) that I have not come to respond to your call because there is already a matter in court and once a matter is sub judice, you cannot talk about it.

“Imo State government has taken me to court on the same subject matter, and we are at the Federal High Court in Abuja on the same subject matter,” Okorocha said.

He added, “EFCC is doing their job because if there is no report, they can’t nose into whatever you are doing; EFCC is not witch-hunting, they are acting on a petition being written by somebody.”

Becoming a govnor made him poorer & he didn't resign but govern the state for 8yrs. During those yrs in office he never came out publicly to complain.

Damn yu man. Most of this politicians deserve public execution

You're right my able former governor and now senator. Unlike the emperor from Iragbiji, Osun State whose throne is in Bourdilion and his footstool in Alausa, Ikeja Lagos State. A man who when he was governor swindled lagos State of over 100 billion Naira through Alpha Beta.

The leader of all Democrats also laundered N22.4bn, $4.4m From Alpha Beta To Vintage Press, Oando, Purchased Shares In Wema, Starcomms, HITV, Others while he keeps urging his Yoruba Moslems and Nairaland urchins to keep chanting " Itesiwaju Eko lo jo wa logun" for a paltry sum of 25,000 naira monthly ęgunję.

It's normal, stolen money are kept and used secretly. He is only telling us about the 'clean' money in his bank account; let him tell us about the secret about his secret investments, assets, money stashed away somewhere, crypto investments, etc
