I ‘ve No Hands In Freezing Of Abia Govt Account – Otti

Must read

Abia Governor-elect, Dr Alex Otti of the main opposition Labour Party, has denied any involvement in the freezing of Abia State Government Accounts.

Otti rather alleged that the freezing of Government accounts was a smokescreen by the out-going Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, to wittingly evade payment of workers’ outstanding salaries as well as Government contractors on the excuse that Government accounts are frozen.

Abia State Government accounts domiciled in various commercial banks were last week, frozen on the order of a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

The State Government had in a statement by Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Eze Chikamnayo, accused Otti of masterminding the court order.

Government, in the statement, accused Otti of being vindictive, warning him that he has not yet been sworn in as the Governor.

The statement read in part: “The danger in this macabre dance is that if they continue this way, sooner than later, the atmosphere of peace and security carefully sustained, enjoyed and even taken for granted by some Abians will suddenly evaporate – giving way to a new wave of killings and persecution under the gestapo style of an imperial impetuous leadership.”

But Otti in a swift response through his Aide, Kazie Uko, said the futile attempt by the State Government to link him with the account freezing was to provide an excuse to shirk responsibility.

He challenged Ikpeazu to squarely face governance until May 29, and stop using court order as a smokescreen.
