In view of the grandstanding coming from Okorocha and his social media Rats instead of apologizing to Imo state, it is very important to note the following.
- The Ben Iheaka’s Judicial Panel was not constituetd by Governor Uzodimma. It was done by Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha.
- The Panel is made up of highly reputable personalities and their actions, inactions and report were devoid of political colouring.
- The Panel extended invitations to Governor Okorocha for more than 5 times in the spirit of fair hearing but the former Governor refused to attend. He rather ran to Court to stop the panel which did not materialise.
- The panel did a thorough and commendable job and their report have been described as among the best and well investigated report in Nigeria.
- Governor Uzodinma did not have any hand nor did he influence the outcome of the report of the panel , at least everybody knows the strong characters or personality in the Committee. We know that Justice Iheaka, Comfort Obi etc are not people one can bribe or influence.
- The Panel relied heavily on facts not fictions in reaching their conclusion. So many people including Civil Servants, Contractors and Stakeholders approached the panel with evidence concerning contract awarded. Journalist who covered the proceeding were marvelled at the startling revelations at the panel proceedings.
- Even some of Okorocha’s former Appointees also indicted the former Governor during their cross examination
- The panel also submitted their evidence and documented facts along side the report for better understanding of how they reached their conclusion.
- The White Paper of the report is yet to come out.
- Imo people are happy over the report and they know that the report is factual.
