Imo state governor, Emeka Ihedioha, has given the end of July as ultimatum to recover all government-owned property especially from his predecessor Rochas Okorocha.
It was gathered that this order came days after his Chief of Staff, Chris Okewulonu, had asked “Okorocha and his appointees to shut up and return all government properties in their possessions.”
Chiji Collins, the Speaker of the Imo state House of Assembly, said the House had set up a committee for that purpose, to ensure that those properties are recovered.
In light of this, the governor through his Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Uche Onyegucha, set up a 9 member committee, headed by Jasper Ndubuaku and Okechukwu Azu, to recover the said properties. He gave them till 31st of July 2019, to accomplish their aim.
It was reported that in the terms and conditions of their assignment was “to ascertain and document all movable properties belonging to the Imo State government which are presently held by unauthorized persons, including past government officials.
It also mandated them “to recover and return to the Government House or other designated government premises such recovered movable properties, irrespective of their conditions for official use or disposal wherever they may be found across the country.
Apart from the Chairman and Secretary other members of the committee included, Ken Anaeme; Casmir Okoroafor; Reginald Udenze; Ernest Njesi; Chika Odionyenma; Charles Ejikeme Asomugha and Collins Ezenwa.
