The outgoing governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, has said his recent troubles make him wonder if the pains he took for the All Progressives Congress (APC) have amounted to anything.
Okorocha, who was speaking when Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo inaugurated some projects in the state on Thursday, lamented that, despite working passionately for the ruling party, what he got in return was constant hounding by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
“You may not know what this visit has done to us because out there, people never believe our story that we have done more than one thousand projects,” Okorocha said.

“Our political detractors have never spoken anything good about us. The impression out there that this government has done nothing but believe me, what you are seeing here is one out of such 1000 projects.
“One of the things EFCC is investigating is N500million …that has made them close down the account of Imo state for the past three months and no activity is going on in the state and I think that is not good to a state that has performed and upgraded the name of APC.
“Since I became governor, I have not had one minute of my life; I have worked for this government but what I got at the end of it all was the seizure of my certificate, and the harassment of the EFCC. This does not give me joy but makes me wonder if it is worth taking the pains for APC.”
On his part, Osinbajo, who represented President Muhammadu Buhari in the state, said the governor has demonstrated that he has passion for the people of the state.
