Barely 24 hours after assumption of office, new Imo State governor, Emeka Ihedioha has commenced the demolition of monuments built by the immediate past governor, Rochas Okorocha as his first action as governor.
Ihedioha was sworn-in as the sixth Executive governor of the state on Wednesday. The Akachi tower, one of the many tourist attractions built by the former governor is being demolished. It was built on a reclaimed dumpsite that was abandoned by previous administrations.
The demolition exercise was supervised by soldiers who barred journalists from covering the exercise. The Akachi monument was one of the structures commissioned by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo barely one week ago. Very sad?
