This comes after a human rights advocacy group, Socio Economic Rights and Accountability Project called on anti-graft agencies to probe the Governor for wasting tax payers’ money on the project alleged to have gulped a whopping N1 billion.

SERAP had accused Okorocha of starving teachers in the state by not paying their their salaries and pensioners’ entitlements but waste public funds on immaterial things.
