Imo people have been charged to remain eternally grateful to God for saving them from the sacked government of Emeka Ihedioha, which he alleged imported a N187 million Mercedes Benz car apparently for official use as governor of the state.
The commissioner was reacting to a suggestion by the chief press secretary to Ihedioha, Chibuike Onyeukwu, that the state governor Uzodimma should come to Ihedioha for tutorials on good governance.
Onyekwu’s comments which he made at a phone in programme with the commissioner on my FM station in owerri on Thursday was repeated at another phone in programme with IBC orient FM owerri yesterday, also with the commissioner .
In response the commissioner said that on the contrary it was Ihedioha that needed all the tutorials from Uzodimma on good governance because the governor was more honest and transparent in governance than Ihedioha and also better equipped in every sense to govern Imo state
The commissioner argued that it was God that saved Imo people by delaying the arrival of the imported car until one month after Ihedioha was sacked by the Supreme Court.
He insisted that any governor with feelings for his people would not want to ride in a car of N187M when the people he was governing were still battling with the basic needs of food and shelter except such a person had imperial ambitions
“ The car is equipped like Airforce one of the United States. It has a master bedroom, conference room, bar and other facilities. It is the type of car that only a Monarch, an Emperor or one with imperial appetite will want to use “ the commissioner said.
