The former Deputy Speaker of Federal House of Representatives and 2015 Imo Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Rt Hon Nnaemeka Nkem Ihedioha has queried Imo State governor, Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha on good governance, accountability and Transparency, asking the Imo Chief executive to tell Ndi-Imo what he used the total sum of Seventy Three Billion Naira (N73b) federal government allocation, bailout fund and Paris Club refund for the year 2016 total receipt to do.
That Imo people deserves to know were their money is channelled to. That N73 billion for 2016 alone is a huge amount to be ignored  by Ndi-Imo.

From the excerpt of his press statement, the former Honourable member representing the people of Aboh Mbaise and Ngor Okpala federal constituency feared  that the money may have developed wings.

The statement reads:

"Ihedioha recalled that “in late 2016, Imo State received the sum of N26.806 billion as bailout and further to this, the Governor also received a total sum of N32.056 billion as federal allocation between January and December 2016 and yet the living condition and the long suffering people of Imo State have not improved”.

He also recalled with grief that just recently, “the Federal Government released approximately N14 billion to Imo State as its own share of the Paris Club debt deduction and up till now, nothing has been heard about the fund, even as there are fears that it may have also developed wings.”..."

Can Imo State Governor, Imo State government or her agents come out plain in answering this mind boggling revelations? Ndi- Imo want to know the truth.
