Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma has explained that the Justice Benjamin Iheka-led Commission of Inquiry on Contracts awarded between 2011 and 2019 in the state only indicted former governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha.

The Governor said the commission did not indict any other former governor of the state as falsely reported by some news media.

The commission submitted its report to Governor Uzodimma on Monday, indicting the Okorocha regime and saying it uncovered fraudulent contracts worth over ₦106 billion which the regime should be made to refund.

The governor said the commission’s investigation covered the award of contracts during the period of Okorocha’s administration from 2011 to 2019 and not 2006 to 2019 as erroneously reported by some newspapers.

He clarified that former governors Achike Udenwa and Ikedi Ohakim are not indicted in contract scam, asking various media houses which have already reported so to refute it.
The governor urged the public to discountenance the report as the probe period did not extend to their regimes.
