Immediate past governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has said that his successor, Emeka Ihedioha, is bent on destroying his landmark projects.
Okorocha said this on Thursday in reaction to the conversion of his Eastern Palm University to a campus of the Imo State University (IMSU) by the state government.
Senator Okorocha insisted that the action further exposes the sinister plot against him and his family by Ihedioha.
Part of a statement by Okorocha’s media adviser, Sam Onwuemeodo, said: “Prof. Njoku’s action only showed the speed and zeal with which the government of the day wants to destroy all the landmark projects of the APC government in the State which Senator Okorocha had headed.”
The statement said Okorocha had always insisted that the Eastern Palm University was a Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) venture.
“The government would have looked at the ideas or vision behind the building of the institutions and their advantages both short-term and long-term and then take things easy with them, in lieu of being hasty in Scrapping them.
“Obviously, the governor was looking at the man behind the Institutions, Okorocha, instead of looking at their in-built merits both now and in the nearest future.
“We want to let Governor Ihedioha know that Okorocha had done eight years as governor and cannot be governor again. He should stop acting as if he is in contest with the former governor,” the statement said.
