“Imo state during my tenure is the least corrupt state in Nigeria according to National Bureau for Statistics in partnership with Amnesty International research and findings.
For the first time a politician in Nigeria challenged the EFCC on account of corruption claims and I requested them to apologize for that action and which they did.
In my conduct bureau I have properties worth over a 100 billion naira before I became a governor, I was Rochas before I became a governor and if I want to be corrupt why would I build in Imo state , if not wealth and job creation for the people.
I had challenged the whole nation and the Imo people to put all that have been since the creation of the state if they could beat my records then I will resign from politics.” as stated by Rochas Okorocha during a webinar engagements he had with Nigerians in South Africa Association
This was disclosed on the bureau report titled “2nd corruption survey report in Nigeria” released one time at the state house conference center in Abuja.
This report as support by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime in collaboration with other partner international agencies, rated Imo State with 17.6% followed by Jigawa and Plateau states.
The survey report also showed that unemployment, insecurity, corruption, are the major problems of Nigeria.
