The Governor of Imo state Rochas Okorocha yesterday visited the International Cargo Airport Owerri which was gutted by fire yesterday.
He took time to answer to a few questions from press men.
On the allegation that he was engaging in illegal withdrawal of funds and selling government property, Okorocha said:
“After that declaration, Imo PDP, went to town with the allegation that I have withdrew N17 billion. It is not possible. “I have said this time without number, and I gave banks in Nigeria, seven days ultimatum to come and tell the world If I have borrowed from the banks any money not only that, I am not owing any worker in Imo state, I also challenged them in seven days to come out and say the truth.
“I am happy to bow out of government but I want to appeal that there should be peace in the land. There should be tolerance in the land. I hear that they are counting my property, they should also go to Abuja, and count the ones in Abuja.”
Adding that, “Igbo have failed politically for two reason, not to accept the light that has come to them and also not to appreciate the leaders that have come to help them.”
