The allegation was made by the factional leader of the Imo PDP, Chief Charles Ezekwem during a press conference in Owerri on Wednesday, August 24, 2016.

“The gory socio-political and economic situation in our beloved Imo State today, easily gives any right thinking person, goose pimples. There is unarguably, a total collapse of virtually every government institution in the state, as nepotism, favouritism and high level of corruption, have become the trademark of the present APC administration of Governor Rochas Okorocha," Ezekwem said according to Vanguard.

“Today in Imo State, it takes about one hour to get to World Bank Housing Estate from Ama JK or Bank Road. Our China roads have all been washed away at just the beginning of rainy season. There is an avalanche of abandoned projects littering everywhere.

“Workers are being owed salaries, while the pensioners are left to wallow in penury and disease and at the mercy of God,” he added.
