Rochas Okorocha has committed over 100 impeachable offences – Imo ALGON

Rochas OkorochaEmbattled Imo State Chapter of Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) has said that Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha might have committed over 100 impeachable offences in less than two years he has held sway as chief executive officer of the state.

The secretary of the association, Barrister Enyinnaya Onuegbu, while speaking with the Vanguard also berated the state House of Assembly for failing to check the excesses of the governor, stressing that the state legislative arm has become a mere rubber stamp in the hands of the executive arm.

His words: “By the last count, the governor of Imo state has committed over 100 impeachable offences. One of the offences is the illegal dissolution of elected local government administrations. Unfortunately, the Imo State House has failed to call the governor to order… Remember that some of the house members left the platform by which they were elected and joined another platform. So it could be part of their agreement. But the truth is that the House of Assembly we know as at today is part of the executive arm. A committee of the house is the one awarding contracts for roads. So the Imo House performs executive functions.”

However, on the planned conduct of fresh local governments election by the state government, Barr. Onuegbu maintained that no fresh elections will held in Imo state until their tenure expired: “There can’t be local government elections in Imo state. Once they issue a notice of election, the court will stop them because there are impending cases in court. It’s impossible in view of all these crises, and my cases are still in court”, the ALGON secretary insisted.
