PARIS, JANUARY 10, 2016: (DGW) THE immediate past Deputy Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha, has joined the barrage of voices calling for full Local Government autonomy in Nigeria.
He amid other national issues said the Imo people are tired of Governor Okorocha who he described as a dictator in civilian garb and it is therefore the interest and desire of the people of Imo State to kick him out of the Government House as their eyes have now been opened to see the realities.
Decrying the state's underdevelopment under Okorocha, he blamed it on lack of autonomy and called particular attention to the 27 local governments in Imo which he says are becoming non-existent.
He made these known in his interview with Daily Sun newspapers where he covered a wide range of other national issues.
Below is an extract culled from the interview.
Excerpts:
Don’t you think that the problem is that members of the PDP, which is the main opposition party have been docile and have refused to talk?
I make informed comment on key issues. My problem with this government is that it is always taking the wrong steps, and one that is uncomfortable with the rule of law, which the governor has consistently expressed. But I believe in the rule of law. So, when you see things being done with negative perception and in ways and manner that is not peculiar with other states, it becomes worrisome. I know that there are well educated people in the state who are more knowledgeable than me. Probably, they refused to comment on actions of the governor which has always put Imo in bad light.
But when an elected governor of a state declares that he does not believe in due process in administering the state, then something is obviously wrong. I don’t think it would be my responsibility to be the whistle blower all the time. But I have a responsibility to be a responsible citizen and to make an informed criticism of certain positions and actions of the governor which I think requires intervention. 
But it is not right for me on daily basis to condemn every action of the governor even when I know that they are wrong. Already, I am getting sick of the negative actions of the governor all the time and I believe that it is now the wish of Imo people for the life of this government to come to an end as quickly as possible so that the people can see a new tomorrow and to know how government can be run the way it should be run. Government today in Imo is in ruins because we have a state of anomie and I am sure that the people know that. 



I am sure that most people have forgotten that there used to be local government in the state, whereas the constitution provides for three tiers of government. But this government has deliberately killed the local governments. So, it is not my responsibility to tell the people of Ihitte Uboma local government, Ohaji/Egbema or Aboh-Mbaise that the local government is not functioning; they should ask why it is not functioning. Now, I am not aware that the local governments have employed anybody in the last six years and one of the major problems in the state is unemployment; I am not also aware that the civil service is employing. I am not aware that the government is creating jobs.
But most people would not agree with you that nothing has changed in Imo
If the governor has done so well as people say when ex-president Obasanjo and the Ghanaian  president was here last December, he should have taken them round the state. It used to be the case in the past for governors, presidents or important personalities to be shown round the state to see what he has done.  
I am sure he cannot take them to  Arondiuzogu and many parts of the state that are inaccessible because there are no roads. When Obasanjo came here, did he say Okorocha has done so well? Obasanjo came because he was invited by the state governor to witness how Christmas is celebrated in the state to light up the Christmas tree. You should find out if Obasanjo slept in Owerri that night.
Politically, what is 2017 going to be like?
Is going to be active politically I believe, and I am sure Imo people will finally wake up from their slumber to see the wholesale deceit going on in the state. People said that the state has been transformed but we know that as usual when the first rain comes,  the  whole cosmetic China patches called roads will give way and people will again go back to realities of their critical situation as the state will go back to where it has always been. 

The Christmas decorations will be taken off the streets by the end of January and our people will again face the issues of the day. I think Imo people have come to realize that the Okorocha-led APC government has failed them woefully.
