Governors Should Emulate Hope Uzodinma In Recovery Of Stolen Funds & Properties

69

In the corruption capital of the world it is customary since return to democratic rule in 1999, for state governors to loot billions of naira to acquire land, properties,luxury vehicles, businesses both home and abroad. And when the baton is passed to a new governor, he turns a blind eye to the massive looting that took place because he plans to do the same on an even bigger scale. During the tenure of Okorocha, pensioners in Imo state were owed for 47 months, while Nigeria civil service pensioners were owed 38 months. They had no idea their entitlements were being used to build a university and a real estate and other personal projects with state funds, with title deeds put in his name. He asked pensioner to forfeit 60% of their entitlements, due to "paucity of funds", even though he was spending billions building statues and using state funds to expand his vast fortune. However, that practice changed when Emeka Ihedioha the former governor of Imo State took power. He was appalled by the massive looting of the state treasury by the previous regime of Okorocha, who left the state treasury empty, and left debts of unpaid pensions,gratutity and salaries of civil servants. He vowed all the funds and properties looted will be recovered, and instituted a state judicial panel, which recommendations he was implement before he was removed by the Supreme Court of Nigeria. The new Governor declared winner, Hope Uzodinma, by the Supreme Court was equally appalled by the finding of the state judicial panel which stated over a N100 billion was looted by the previous administration. And decided to put partisan considerations aside and decided to implement the recommendations of the state judicial panel set up by his predecessor in PDP.
