Former Governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha has dared Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma to prove his claim of his being involved in an alleged N106 billion fraud.

Recall that Governor Uzodinma had alleged Senator Okorocha of fraudulently spending N106 billion on fictitious contracts.

Reacting to the allegation, Senator Okorocha in a statement through his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo dismissed the allegations against him.

Senator Okorocha denies diverting money meant for projects, asking the Uzodinma-led administration to publish the list of contractors who allegedly handled projects under the Okorocha regime.

Also, he challenged the Imo government to disclose the amount paid to the contractors. Senator Okorocha’s spokesperson said it is on record that the Okorocha administration executed befitting projects.

He questioned how the former governor could have embezzled funds for the projects when the projects were actually executed. Onwuemeodo said: “We have always claimed that Okorocha as Governor had more than one thousand projects to his credit and nobody, including the Government in Imo, has said it is not true or has openly challenged us to publish the projects because they know that the projects exist. And if they exist, how would have someone made away with N106 billion and still do such befitting projects.”
