Former Governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has said he became poorer after spending eight years as governor of Imo state. He denied acquiring any property with government funds as governor.
Okorocha said this when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics. According to the former governor, people seem to have forgotten so easily that he was a successful person before becoming governor in 2011.
Okorocha, also dared anyone to come forth with evidence that he is corrupt and mismanaged Imo State funds while in office.
“I challenge anybody to prove that I acquired any property with any government fund,” Okorocha said.
“I think people have forgotten that I was Rochas before becoming the governor of Imo State; I think they have forgotten completely.
“If anything, becoming a governor made me even poorer than what I was in the past. I don’t know whether I acquired any property here in Abuja, there is none.”
The lawmaker said the hotel linked to him belongs to his wife which is also a source for their foundation.
