Published

on

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State is in trouble as Ndigbo Unity Forum, an Igbo socio-cultural group,has given him an ultimatum of 60 days to pay workers outstanding salaries and allowances.

This is contained in a statement signed by the President of the forum, Mr Augustine Chukwudum,and made available to journalists in Enugu on Sunday.

It described as unfortunate that after receiving bailout funds from the Federal Government, which the governors and their cabinet agreed was enough to settle workers, would divert such money.
The statement said such action was the height of insensitivity in a democratic setting that holds a lot of good promises for the people.
“On South East, we observed that the Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state notwithstanding bailout funds that runs into billions that he received from the Federal Government that he still owes workers in the state many months salary.
