The Governor-Elect of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha, has warned financial institutions against engaging in last minute transactions with the Rochas Okorocha government.
He gave the warning while addressing journalists in Owerri, the state capital.
Ihedioha, who won the gubernatorial election under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said anyone involved in such activities will be doing that at their own peril.
“May I use this opportunity to warn all those who may be tempted to do illegal last-minute transaction with the out-going government, particularly financial institutions which may result in further burdening the state with unsustainable liabilities that they will be doing so at their own peril,” he stated.
Ihedioha, who is also a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, also promised to set up a transition team that will collaborate with the outgoing government to collate and collect information on the affairs of the state.
