The governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has been in Johannesburg, South Africa for the past two days.
He claimed he is there to “woo investors” to his state. But a source at meetings over the past two days attended by the Okorocha described the governor as a “comedian” and “clueless”.
Okorocha has a penchant for travelling round the world allegedly to bring investors to his state. He was in Thailand in January on an “economic mission”. He has been to Turkey several times.
No one in Imo State has seen any benefits from these investment-seeking trips. Rather than bring in investment, one source in Owerri, the state capital, alleged that Okorocha’s trips were ruses to launder stolen public funds abroad.
