For Okorocha, the delusion never ends
Governor Rochas Okorocha’s superficial governance seems a long way from finding realism and responding to the needs of Imolites.
Last week, the governor was at one of his grim governance embrace when he declared an 18-day holiday for civil servants beginning from Friday, December 22, 2017 to Monday, January 8, 2018.
A press statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, said that the government gave workers in the state workforce reasonable time every Christmas to enable them celebrate with their loved ones.
Time and time again, Okorocha has left many aghast as to his idea of governance. If he is not erecting statues, he is appointing his sister as Commissioner of Happiness and Purpose Fulfilment.
Before his emergence as governor over six years ago, the governor was seen as the man with the magic wand; the one that can recreate the glorious years of Sam Mbakwe.
But it has turned out that it is an illusion of hope and stillborn expectations with grandiose projects that are meant never to be completed.
What does he intend to gain by the latest misadventure of 18 days free holiday? What happens to government files and general administrative work?
Well, people say the government of Imo state is a family business and with the latest wrongheaded extended state-wide leave, Okorocha has confirmed that he is delusional.
