The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Imo State, has advised Governor Rochas Okorocha to do himself a favour by enrolling in a formal leadership training class.
Addressing newsmen in Owerri, the party’s state Secretary, Mr. Chima Akujobi, explained that they opted to offer the advice, having found out that the governor did not fully appreciate what leadership was all about.
“The situation of things in the state is most disappointing. Our lawmakers are not even helping matters, as they have sadly lowered themselves by accepting to serve as members of taskforces, thus scuttling the legislative arm of government,” Akujobi said.
Recalling the N600 million planned expenditure for Christmas and New Year decoration, the Imo PDP described same as “senseless,” especially as civil servants and pensioners were owed.
“How can a government spend so much for Christmas decoration, when civil servants and pensioners are owed huge arrears of salaries and pensions? This amounts to insensitivity and shadow chasing,” Akujobi said.
He added that “Imo is the most backward and one of the worst administered states in the country.”
