Imo State Airline: Governor Rochas Okorocha Faces Impeachment

January 27, 2017 – Imo State Airline Inauguration: Governor Rochas Okorocha Faces Impeachment

Former Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Works, Imo, Dr Cletus Nnorom on Thursday called on the House of Assembly to commence impeachment process against Gov. Rochas Okorocha over his recent inauguration of airline for the State.

He said he would mobilise for the lawmakers recall if they failed to commence impeachment process against the governor.

“Enough is enough, the governor thinks everybody is a fool in this state and we must stand for our rights.
“We have kept quiet for a long time and I am personally going to make it official with the lawmakers”, he said.

A trader, Mr Uchenna Ojigwe, said the governor had failed the people. We are dying of hunger in Imo and the governor is busy spending the state’s money without due consultations.

“Who told the governor that we needed airline at this moment of recession when he cannot even pay salaries of workers in the state?
“Is this not a governor that have refused to pay salaries of workers and pensioners, yet he is flouting airline?” he said.

The state Coordinator of True Ambassador, an NGO, Mr Kingsley Ibe, said floating an airline by the governor was an impeachable offence because it was never captured in 2016 budget.

“We are calling for the governor’s impeachment because he never followed due process in floating the Imo airline.
“The governor should limit his projects to the budget approved for him by the lawmakers and since he decided to run the affairs of Imo state as a private business, he should be impeached”, he said.

Okorocha, on Wednesday, commissioned Imo airline at the Sam Mbakwe International Airport.

Okorocha said Imo had no license to manage an airline but had 10 years partnership arrangement with Dana Airline to manage it for the state.

The governor also said the airline would boost tourism, create employment and encourage discounted rate for Imo indigenes.

    This governor is actually proving to be a clone, there is no doubt he is the one OBJ was referring to when he mentioned of giving presidency to Igbos, and the reason is because this clone has succeeded in messing Imo state up and already Bokoharamized it. The impeachment is already overdue.

    UNDER NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES, THIS WOULD have been a laudable stride. But when salaries are owed and people are starving on account of delayed payments, floating an airline is nothing but to rub it into the faces of the common men that they are not important. After all, it is only the rich that flies. The Governor seems to have no sustainable plan for the poor masses. This is highly deplorable.

    For now,not even the mega states as Lagos and Rivers could afford this form of miss investment. It is not people oriented more so only the rich and government officials shall benefit from this. The revenue will be on the negative as the officials who will board it will continually ask for discount subvention. In the first place was this appropriated.

    If Nigeria cannot run an airline how is Imo state going to manage this? Simpleton with adolescent tendencies is what the Gov. is.
