Governor Rochas Okorocha Cries Out, Denies Buying Private Jet With Imo State Money

Okorocha in Private Jet

Governor Rochas Okorocha, popularly blackmailed as Okoroawusa by Director Nnamdi Kanu of Radio Biafra has denied the claims and rumours going round the country that he bought his Private Jet with the hard earned money of the Imo People notwithstanding many months of unpaid salaries.

Debunking the claim made by the opposition party to the APC led administration in Imo State, Governor Okorocha has spoken through his Chief Press Secretary that he (Rochas Okorocha) bought the Private Jet even before he became the Governor.

Okorocha's reaction is contained in a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, yesterday, August 27th. Read it after the cut...

"As a government, we want to deny with high sense of honesty that since May 29, 2011 when Owelle Rochas Okorocha became governor, he has never bought any private Jet either directly or by proxy. Having made this denial let those behind the allegation make their facts public to fault our denial. “The period Governor Rochas Okorocha bought Jets was years before he was elected, during the Olusegun Obasanjo regime when some of the presidential jets were auctioned. The governor bought jets then under the aegis of Lamonde Aviation, alongside few other Nigerians. Since he became governor, he has never bought any private Jet. Again, the Debit Management Agency penultimate week published the states and their respective debt profiles. And in the case of Imo State, they published N37 billion which was far from the hundreds of billions the opponents of the government have been claiming to be the debt status of the state. And the N37 billion debt include the ones owed by the previous administrations. The good story is that we have been vindicated on that.”the statement read.

Whether he is lying or saying the truth we leave him to God but if Obasanjo can help us with facts, we will appreciate it even more.
