After some hours of the assumption of office, Imo State governor, Emeka Ihedioha has commenced the demolition of monuments built by the immediate past governor, Rochas Okorocha as his first action as governor.
According to the reports, Ihedioha was sworn-in as the sixth Executive governor of the state on Wednesday, May 29th.
MainNews Blog gathered that Akachi tower, one of the many tourist attractions built by the former governor is being demolished as at the time of filing this report.
However, it was built on a reclaimed dump site that was abandoned by previous administration and the demolition exercise was supervised by soldiers who barred journalists from covering the exercise of the demolition.
The Akachi monument was one of the structures commissioned by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo barely one week ago.
There are fears that the new governor will also demolish other monuments in Owerri, the state capital, especially the famous statues.
