Former Imo State Governor, Ikedi Ohakim has said that his successor, Rochas Okorocha has taken the state backward.

Ohakim also reminded Okorocha that governance is about continuity and should be for the good of the people.

The former governor made the comments after a visit to a water project he built in the Obowo Local Government Area of the state which had been abandoned by the Okorocha administration.

“You can see that the water scheme has been abandoned and vandalized. My administration built this project in almost every nook and cranny of the state. We built 1,930 of the water scheme across the state,” Ohakim said according to Vanguard.

“Who will drive on the roads when they have no water to drink or if they die from diseases gotten from unclean water sources. Where are the two generators we provided to pump water?

“You can see that cables have been destroyed and vandalized, the whole place over grown with weeds and left to fall apart just because it was Ohakim’s project.

“Governance is about continuity and essentially for the benefit of the people and not for the ego of one single individual. You cannot keep abandoning or destroying what Ohakim built for the people just because you want to erase Ohakim’s legacies,” he added.
