Okorocha , made the appeal on Tuesday . He was reacting to the demolition of the Somtochukwu Hospital , built during his administration .
The former governor who now represents Imo West Senatorial District , in the Senate , said, “ A fight against Rochas Okorocha must be separated with that of Imo state asset .
“ My key projects are left to rot in Imo . My heart bleeds over the present demolition of Somto Hospital . Fight me alone don ’t fight the people of Imo state . Why do you fight the properties of the Imo state government ?”


However, the Secretary of the Imo state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Ray Emeana , accused Okorocha of the same crime he was accusing his successor of . Emeana expressed regret that Okorocha , equally destroyed the long existing Eke Ukwu Owerri market during his time in office.


He said , “ Imo is very unlucky . It is only God that will forgive us. Since Dee Sam Mbakwe ’ s government in this state , the next governor that has meant well for the state was Emeka Ihedioha . After him, it was all very selfish governments. I support the aforesaid because Okorocha had destroyed the market where the poor in the society sustained their lives from .


“ The same APC that demolished the market is the same party that is demolishing the structure now . This is not what Imo people need as at now , where workers have not been paid their salaries, pensions hanging and hunger ravaging the entire society ”
