Hon. Stan Dara and Hon. Ikechukwu Amuka are reportedly in trouble over the purchase of asphalt for the construction of 15 kilometer road in each of the 27 local governments of the state.
There was a photo recently of both men kneeling before Governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha and it was alleged that they were begging him.
Hon. Stan Dara, member representing Orsu State Constituency who is also the chairman joint task force on roads construction in the Imo State and honourable Ikechukwu Amuka who is also a member of the Taskforce and representing Ideato South State Constituency in Imo State House of Assembly denied the allegations.
However, a source from Imo State Government House who pleaded anonymity alleged that the two men actually were in hot soup and knelt down to beg the Governor who was angry with them over the hiking of the cost of asphalt meant for the construction of the roads in the state.
According to him, that was why Hon Ikechukwu Amuka was holding a document relating to the purchase of the asphalt and putting the blame on Hon Stan Dara whom he said was the chairman of the Taskforce.
The source added that the members who sweated as they begged the Governor were afraid that the Governor could initiate a stiff disciplinary measure against them in the House, stall their political ambitions in 2015 or hand them over to the anti-graft agencies for prosecution and eventual prosecution.
“If you looked very well at the pictures, you will see that Dara was afraid and sweating; you can also see that Amuka was also very uncomfortable, and it cannot be true that they did not kneel down to the Governor or begged him over the matter I just told you about,” he said.
Attempts to reach both men proved abortive.
