Imo State Governor, Chief Rochas Okorocha has blamed the financial position of the state for his inability to appoint commissioners in the state six months after he was sworn in for a second term in office.
He also maintained that the Igbo will not use the platform of any separatist group to negotiate their agenda.
The governor who was interacting with the media at the government house on Monday, stated that the state was broke and could not at the moment engage extra hands in the form of appointment of Commissioners as they would also require to be serviced.
According to him, “We will not be able to appoint commissioners for the state now because there is no money as we want to cut cost. When we appoint commissioners, they would require Prado Jeeps, travel allowances, and other allowances; and the state is not ready to do that now. It is better to do with the committees which we had appointed to take care of those things.” (Thisday)
