Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has taken a dig at his predecessor, Senator Rochas Okorocha during the dedication of two new rods in the state.
President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurated the roads in Owerri, the Imo State capital visually on Tuesday, about a year after Uzodinma controversially took office.
Speaking at the visual event, Uzodinma told President Buhari that when he took over governance a year ago, almost all the roads in the State were not motorable and as a result, both inter and intra city movement were nightmarish
“To make matters worse, there was no money to carry out palliative repairs… and I received no handover note from the previous administration and no kobo was handed over to me,” he said.
He said the infrastructure achievements of his administration have been greatly influenced by the sterling qualities of the President and as such the State Executive Council unanimously voted to name the newly constructed World Bank to Federal secretariat road, Muhammadu Buhari road.
Uzodinma’s statement is an undisguised attack on Okorocha who spent 8 years in office as the governor of the state.
Both men have been at loggerheads over political control in the state.
