Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has warned the

governor-elect, Emeka Ihedioha, to desist from giving

directives to banks handling the finances of the state.

The governor frowned at the move by Ihedioha, saying he

(Ihedioha) lacked the constitutional power to give such


The governor described the governor-elect as one who is

coming only after the treasury of the state.

Okorocha gave these warnings in a statement issued by his

Chief Press Secretary on Friday in Owerri.

He said, “Emeka Ihedioha, who was declared winner of the

governorship election in Imo State by Prof. Francis Ezeonu-led

INEC in Owerri, does not have the right or locus yet to harass or

give directives to the financial institutions in the state over their

dealings with the state government.

“The media report quoting Ihedioha as having given such

directive is unfortunate and a sign of ugly things to come.

Otherwise, Ihedioha should not have been the first of all the

governors-elect in the country to issue such directive.

“We are also not surprised at his issuing the directive because

as a PDP man, his interest, first and foremost, will be the

treasury of the state, and the policy or the slogan of ‘Share the

money’ will soon come back. But he should exercise patience

and wait till he is sworn-in.

“He shouldn’t be in a hurry. There is a government in place and

until May 29, 2019, that government should continue”.
