The Imo State Government have sealed Rochas Foundation College, Orji, in Owerri, the state capital.
NewsWireNGR gathered that state government officials arrived at the college on Tuesday and sealed it.
The Senior Special Assistant to the Governor of Imo State on Print Media, Modestus Nwamkpa, who confirmed the development, said that the governor, Hope Uzodinma, was committed to recovering properties of the state allegedly “looted by Okorocha and his family members”.
Nwamkpa said that the governor was implementing the recommendations of various White Papers by committees set up by the state government.
“Governor Hope Uzodinma is committed to recovering all the properties of the state stolen. This is not a personal war it is just the implementation of the recommendations of the whitepapers of the various committees set up the government.” he added.
While reacting to the seal, Senator Okorocha through his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, said “This is the fourth time Imo State Government has announced that they are sealing that place. EFCC had also announced that they had sealed it but the truth is that Uzodinma should wake up. There is hunger in the state.
“This is just the renewal of his war against Okorocha after Okorocha and other strong APC chieftains in Imo State visited APC National Secretariat. Each time Uzodinma realises that the people are not happy with his style of governance, he using Okorocha’s name to distract the people but the truth is poverty and hunger pervade the atmosphere. He should be humble enough to consult Okorocha on how to govern the state.”
