The new governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, has ordered probe of contracts awarded in the state from 2010 till date.
He also sought the comprehensive financial status of the state within the same period.
Former governors Ikedi Ohakim, Rochas Okorocha and Emeka Ihedioha governed the state during the period.
The governor gave the order in his inaugural speech, after he was sworn in.
Uzodinma said his administration was anchored on rehabilitation, reconstruction and recovery, adding that he will revive the state and make it work again.
He said the judiciary demonstrated courage by declaring him the duly elected governor of the state, saying his victory at the Supreme Court would not have been possible without the support of the leadership of the All Progressives Congress(APC).
“My government shall be anchored on reconstruction, rehabilitation and recovery. Every Imo person shall have a say in my government.
“My doors are wide open. I forgive those who conspired to rob me of my hard-earned mandate. Let us work hard to make Imo the pride of Nigeria.
“I hereby direct the accountant general of the state to within four days forward to me the comprehensive financial status of the state from May 2010 till date.
“I also direct the permanent secretaries of all the ministries to within the same period forward the status of the contracts awarded within the time frame. Payment of all ongoing contracts is hereby stopped,” Uzodinma said.
He noted that the apex court corrected the “wrongs” of the Tribunal and Court of Appeal and used its eagle eye of the law to give him justice.
