While there is no proof as to the source of funds the imo State Commissioner for internal resources and Pension was disbursing around in a picture that has gone viral, it does look to be a political gathering of some sort or an event where members dressed in uniform attire. A topic trending on nairaland claims the money was being disbursed at the just concluded mega Imo State APC rally held at the state capital, Owerri.
Pensioners in Imo State is now not far-fetched as the money for pensioners has been enmarked for distribution at different political programs both in the state and outside the state.
While pensioners are gnashing their teeth in abject poverty in the state over non-payment of their pensions for several months, the Commissioner for Internal Resources and Pensions Ministry of the state, Barrister Mrs. Ugochi Nnanna Okoro is seen in these pictures distributing monies meant for the payment of pensions to men and women hired by the state governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha for the mega rally the state held for President Muhammadu Buhari in the state capital, Owerri.
One wonders how this governor of Imo State sleeps at night knowing that there are men and women in the state who do not sleep at all over hunger brought on them by the wickedness of one man who is serving them at their governor.
Shamefully too, the same rally that had people bribed to attend did not witness the presence of neither the president, Muhammadu Buhari, the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo nor the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu attend a rally organized by the only South-Eastern governor of the Party in the Zone.
These pictures emanating from that rally shows that the people we saw who attended that rally were all paid, which was why the President and his vice avoided it like poison, meaning that Rochas Okorocha is a dead politician so long as Ndi-Imo is concerned.
