Okorocha used us to claim undue glory-Contractors .

“Majority of us are crying. Most of us are in pains. We feel dribbled, used and swindled. There is nothing wrong in trusting the governor and his government.”  Nigeria Newspoint - Okorocha used us to claim undue glory-Contractors  A report by the Nigeria Newspoint says, road contractors working for Imo State government have denied receiving any amount, not even the claimed N13.9 billion payment from the state government. They have challenged the government to publish the names of the companies it paid the money to.

The contractors accused Governor Rochas Okorocha of using them to claim undue glory as a performing governor without paying then  amount, instead he was claiming he does not know them.
In the heat of the cries by the people of the state against bad roads across the state, Governor Okorocha had accused the contractors of being unreliable and that they ran away with a whopping sum of N13.9 billion paid to them to continue their work on the roads.
But speaking with journalists in Owerri  Wednesday, the leader of the contractors and chairman of Zack West Africa Companies, Chief Zack Awaraka, argued that if the state government was sincere about spending N13.9 billion, it should be able to publish the names of the benefitting companies and the site they worked as that “will help us to know who the ghost companies.
