As per Okorocha: “Recollect God in releasing your obligations. Release your requirements without dread or support and furthermore protect your State when the need emerges.
“I put forth a strong effort. I will do everything I can to help the approaching government. Imo State Government has kept aside a sum of N42.5bn for the incoming government, and hence, I will set up a sub-board of trustees to ensure that the ventures they are appended to, happen as intended notwithstanding when I am out of office or when I won’t be accessible on the grounds that legislature is a continuum.
“The breakdown of these assets are as per the following: N8.1bn that came into Imo State offers from both State and LG, from FAAC, that cash has not been exhausted as not by any means one naira has been detracted from it and the cash is in Zenith Bank and has not been contacted. The other cash is N5.2bn in Access Bank, the leftover of the Paris Club finance, not one naira has been expelled from it.”
