The newly sworn in governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, has launched the process of probing the immediate past governors of the state since 2010.
They include, ex-governors Ikedi Ohakim, Rochas Okorocha and Emeka Ihedioha who was just sacked on Tuesday by the Supreme Court.
Governor Uzodinma initiated this process during his inaugural speech at his swearing in on Wednesday, in which he announced that the accountant general of the state should provide him with “the comprehensive financial status of the state from May 2010 till date.”
According to him, his administration will be hinged on rehabilitation, reconstruction and recovery in order to make Imo State the pride of Nigeria.
He also commended the courage of the judiciary at the Supreme Court level in declaring his victory as the governor of Imo State.
“My government shall be anchored on reconstruction, rehabilitation and recovery. Every Imo person shall have a say in my government.
“My doors are wide open. I forgive those who conspired to rob me of my hard-earned mandate. Let us work hard to make Imo the pride of Nigeria.
“I hereby direct the accountant general of the state to within four days forward to me the comprehensive financial status of the state from May 2010 till date.
“I also direct the permanent secretaries of all the ministries to within the same period toward the status of the contracts awarded within the time frame. Payment of all ongoing contracts is hereby stopped.”

When presented with his certificate of return by the Independent National Electoral Commission on Wednesday, Governor Uzodinma said;
“The first court did not do the thing we expected, the second court followed suit. But the Supreme Court used the eagle eye of the law and gave us justice,” Uzodinma said after receiving his Certificate of Return from INEC National Commissioner and Chairperson (Legal Services), May Agbamuche-Mbu, in Abuja on Wednesday.
