Imo State Governor, Okwelle Rochas Okorocha has cautioned the state Governor – elect, Mr Emeka Ihedioha, to stop questioning financial institutions in the state over their dealings with the state government, saying that the governor-elect should be patient and wait until he is sworn in as the state’s governor before giving his directives.
Okorocha, made this known in a press statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo.
According to the statement, the Imo state governor, described Ihedioha’s directives to the state financial institutions as a sign of unpleasant things to come .
It went further to state that, “There is a government in place and until May 29, 2019, that government should continue to work in the interest of the state and her people and also continue to carry out programmes and policies for the same purpose.
“To begin to harass or give directives to financial institutions in the state is an act of hostility. Financial Institutions in the state should disregard such directive and continue to do the right thing and take the right action.
“The best that the governor-elect can do is to confront the outgoing government when he takes over on any financial transaction he has reservations at.”
Okorocha, however, advised Ihedioha to be patient and wait until he is sworn in before issuing directives to financial institutions.
