Outgoing Imo state governor Rochas Okorocha today  disclosed that  he has kept N42.5 billion in the coffers of the state for his successor, Chief Emeka Ihedioha.

Okorocha said  he decided to keep such amount for the in-coming governor so that there won’t be excuses in carrying out activities of government.

The governor, who made the disclosure while swearing-in eleven permanent secretaries as well as the new accountant-genera, Deacon Donald Igbo and the new head of service Mrs. Ngozi Ama Eluma, explained that N8.1billion of the money was meant for the payment of salaries and capital projects while N5.2billion was for pension arrears.
