Uzodinma visits Buhari, seeks refund of N32bn

The Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, has sought a refund of over N32billion his predecessors spent on Federal  Government’s projects, especially on roads in the state.

Uzodinma requested for the refund when he paid a visit to President, Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.


Speaking with State House correspondents after the meeting, he said he raised the issue with Buhari because Imo was ‘financially distressed’, “About N32bn that was spent on federal roads in the past…Imo is financially distressed.”

The governor added that he briefed President Buhari on the state of things in Imo State, adding that the President gave him listening ears.


Governor Uzodinma’s immediate predecessor, Mr Emeka Ihedioha, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, is contesting the Supreme Court judgment that sacked him in January.
Before Ihedioha, there was Rochas Okorocha, who was governor between 2011 and 2019.
