We Deliberately Left Owerri Dirty To Punish Indigenes – Imo Govt

Few days ago, the pictures of an Anglican priest who celebrated his Independence Day at a refuse site in Owerri, the Imo State capital, went viral, with people calling on the state government to do something about it.

Yesterday, the Imo State Government accepted that it deliberately abandoned the refuse along the ever busy Douglas Road, Owerri, to get back at the indigenes who have been fighting the administration.
According to Vanguardngr,

Gov. Rochas Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary, CPS, Mr. Samuel Onwuemeodo, made the disclosure during an early morning public accountability phone-in programme anchored by Hot 99.5 FM, Owerri.

He was quoted as saying:

“Government deliberately abandoned the refuse along Douglas Road, Owerri, to get back at Owerri people who have been battling the state government, over the relocation of the market.
Owerri people must be made to understand that they cannot eat their cake and have it. There is also a court order restraining government from tampering with the market and this also explains why we left the refuse.”
