Article: Details Of Imo State Council Funds Squandered By Governor Rochas Okorocha

Governor Rochas Okorocha

By Kenneth Uwadi

I must confess that we are approaching the end of Governor Okorocha’s tenure and he has completely failed to meet the hopes and aspirations of unemployed youths in Imo State. Even the democratic rights which the poor working masses of Imo State enjoyed during the last administration of the state were withheld by this authoritarian Governor. May 2011 till date have shown a monumental failure of the capitalist thieving Governor Okorocha who has proved to be incapable in the areas of youth empowerment, health care and infrastructural development. This is in spite of the fact that the mentioned years witnessed the longest run of oil money in the history of Imo. In other words, the state got very huge financial allocation from FG in Okorocha’s tenure , much more than any period since the history of Imo State. But there has been nothing fundamental to show for it in term of employment, infrastructure and grass root development.

Redeployment Of Senior Police Officers: Why Acting IGP’s Confirmation Should Be Tied To His Handling Of  Ethno-Religious Domination & Lopsided Operational Posting & Assignment Of Strategic Duties In The NPF
General Information: In early February 2014, our organization (International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law) discovered existing ethno-religious domination in the Nigeria Police Force (NPF). The discovery was in respect of promotion of senior police officers carried out constitutionally by the Police Service Commission (PSC) and operational posting and assignment of duties, which are constitutionally performed by the Inspector General of Police (IGP).
