Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has signified readiness to be probed over the erection in Owerri of the statues of presidents Jacob Zuma and Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf of South Africa and Liberia respectively.

This comes after a human rights advocacy group, Socio Economic Rights and Accountability Project called on anti-graft agencies to probe the Governor for wasting tax payers' money on the project alleged to have gulped a whopping N1 billion.

SERAP had accused Okorocha of starving teachers in the state by not paying their their salaries and pensioners’ entitlements but waste public funds on immaterial things.

The Governor while speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemedo, said the state government would not lose sleep over the position taken by SERAP.

Onwuemeodo, cautioned SERAP for allegedly contradicting itself in the demand for probe, argued that SERAP should have stopped at its call for a probe to demonstrate its seriousness, “instead of passing judgment, thereby jeopardising what should have been an innocent call for probe.”

Onwuemeodo further insisted that SERAP should have waited for the outcome of the probe it called for and then make its stand known to the public, based on the results of the expected probes.

“I insist that that should have been the way to go,” Onwuemeodo said.
