Uzodinma made this known on Tuesday, during a meeting held with the state stakeholders forum.
He had recently come out to boldly state that he’d use the stakeholders meeting to unmasked the terror financiers of Imo state.
When asked to comment about the his recent statement, Governor Uzodinma admitted that his recent statement had already caused tensions in the state.
Backing out of his previous decision of naming the alleged troublemakers in the state, Uzodinma stated that security agents who identified them would be saddled with the responsibility.
Taking on his arch rival, Uzodinma further accused Rochas Okoroca of taking his role by not realizing that his tenure as Chief Executive of the state had gone.
Uzodimma said, “We have many former governors in the state. We have former governors Achike Udenwa, Ikedi Ohakim, Emeka Ihedioha and Rochas Okorocha. But Rochas Okorocha has failed to recognise that he is a former governor.”
“Rochas Okorocha is my younger brother. I am older than him and today I am the governor. He should recognize that fact and accord me that respect,” he added.
