Ihedioha denies demolishing Akachi towers built by ex-Gov Okorocha

Condemnations have trailed the demolition of one of the Akachi towers in Imo State.

Many have condemned the action, saying the monument was built with public fund and should not be pulled down to downgrade the former administration.

Recall that Ihedioha was sworn in as the sixth executive governor yesterday.

The Akachi towers, one of the many tourist attractions built by Okorocha, was built on a reclaimed dumpsite that was abandoned by previous administrations. It was inaugurated barely a week ago by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

It was learnt that the  demolition was supervised by soldiers who barred journalists from covering the exercise

Many residents have also afraid that the new governor will also demolish other monuments in Owerri, especially the famous statues.

Reacting on the matter, Ihedioha’s Special Adviser, Steve Osuji, said the governor was not aware of the demolition and never gave such directive.

According to him, the governor was in the Government House trying to settle down in his office
