Okorocha Plans To Spend N850m On Christmas Tree – Group Claims

A socio-political group, G42 Imo Liberation Forum, has raised an alarm over a purported plan by the government of Rochas Okorocha to waste tax payers’ money by spending a whooping sum of N850 million on Christmas tree ahead of the 2017 celebration.

Okorocha was recently criticised by Nigerians for erecting a statue of South Africa president Jacob Zuma , in Owerri.

In a statement on Saturday, November 4, by G42 Director of Communications, Dr. Walter Duru, the forum described the alleged plan as misplaced priority and a sign of government’s insensitivity.

It read:

Continuing the group said: “The government must tell Imo people how much it actually spent on erecting the ridiculous Jacob Zuma Statue and others there-in, as well as the said Christmas tree.
“The G-42 Imo Liberation Forum, a Socio-political group in the state sees this as the highest level of insensitivity, misplaced priority and share waste of the people’s resources and hereby condemn it.”

“The present APC -led government must realize that it is holding the people’s resources on thrust and therefore accountable to the people. This administration has treated Imo people with so much disrespect and disdain that we can no longer fold our arms to allow this anomaly to continue.”

“We therefore call on the state government to discontinue the wanton waste of the peoples’ resources and invest in areas that are beneficial to majority of the citizens.”
