Imo State is Owning Me N8 billion, I Didn’t Touch Public Money- Okorocha


The Senator representing Imo West senatorial district in Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, said he has not received a dime as salary since assuming the office.

According to Okorocha, he also did not receive salaries throughout his eight years as governor of Imo State.

This, Okorocha said, was because he “hates public funds because of the spiritual implications” that accompany them.

The former Imo State Governor stated this at on ongoing media chat organised to mark his 59th birthday in Abuja.



Earlier, the Senator also claimed that he didn’t receive a dime from about N250 million security votes allocated to his office as Imo Governor.



“As a matter of fact, Imo State is owning me about N8 billion,” said Okorocha.
