The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate in Imo State, who is also the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha, has Governor Rochas Okorocha a notice to quit Government House.
Ihedioha, who spoke at a public lecture in Owerri, the Imo State capital, said his emergence as the PDP flag bearer for the 2015 governorship election in the state signaled the end to the reign of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
He, therefore, asked Okorocha to prepare his handover note as “PDP will reclaim the state come May 29, 2015”.
The candidate boasted that Imo State under his watch would become a model of democracy, promising to bring his 12 years of legislative experience to bear in the governance of the state.
He assured that Imo would witness peace and rancour-free relationship among all its three arms of government.
Ihedioha, who gave Okorocha knocks for allegedly abolishing local government system in the state, said the governor’s substitution of the council system with community development government was “strange to the Nigerian constitution”.
He further accused Okorocha of “executive impunity” and that he had insulted the intelligence of the people of the state through “his various policies and programmes which are neither here or there”.
Ihedioha said: “He (Okorocha) said he is building new hospitals. What has happened to all the General Hospitals in the state? Why not rehabilitate them instead of building new ones on the roads or does he want vehicle to knock down our people as they go for medical attention?”
The PDP guber candidate accused the governor of maladministration and promised to reverse his “ill- advised policies” if voted into office
