I’ll Hand Over Debt-Free Imo By 2019, Says Okorocha

Rochas OkorochaGovernor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has expressed confidence that by the time he would be completing his second term in 2019, he will be handing over a debt-free state to his successor.

Speaking at the NUJ Press Centre, Owerri, the Imo State capital yesterday, Okorocha said that he has settled the loans borrowed by the state government.

The only loan yet to be settled, he said, was the bailout fund given the state by the federal government, which repayment has been structured to be made in 20 years.

The governor carpeted the past Peoples Democratic Party administration in the country, describing it as the worst thing that ever happened to Nigeria.

He, however, appealed to the citizens to continue to support President Muhammdu Buhari’s administration to fight corruption.

“I am happy president Buhari has the courage to fight corruption”, he said, calling on the people of Imo State to buy into the vision of the All Progressives Congress-led federal government aimed at bringing change.
