The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Imo State and State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, at the weekend, exchanged fireworks over alleged withdrawals from the State Treasury.

PDP State Chairman, Charles Ezekwem, Friday accused Governor Okorocha of withdrawing N17 billion naria from the state coffers within three days.

He said that the withdrawals, which was meant to frustrate the incoming PDP administration, were made between Tuesday, March 12, 2019 and Thursday, March 14, 2019 from Unity Bank, Polaris Bank, Access Bank and Zenith Bank.

“In the last two days alone, Governor Okorocha and his cronies transferred ownership and re-registered more than 150 government vehicles to individuals.

“Government property including furniture and electronics in Government House, Owerri, are being moved out to Ogboko, Ideato South, the governor’s country home.

“About 300 uninstalled transformers have been moved to the governor’s home in Ogboko.

In swift response on Sunday, Okorocha said
the PDP were making careless statements.

According to Sam Onwuemedo, his Chief Press Secretary, he said the allegations were unfounded.

“Blackmail or propaganda which the PDP invested heavily in during the 12years they governed the State have become old-fashioned in the State at the moment” he said
