Abia State Government has said there was no going back on plans to probe former governor of the state, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, saying funds were mismanaged by his administration.
Chief Press Secretary to Governor Theodore Orji, Mr. Ugochukwu Emezue, who disclosed this in a statement issued yesterday in Umuahia, highlighted the state’s Infrastructure Fund as one the former governor mismanaged.
Emezue, who said the planned probe had been welcomed by Abians, said it would help in ascertaining the level of alleged corruption during the eight years of the former governor. According to Emezue, allegation by the former governor that Theodore Orji has properties in Abuja and other cities is false.
He challenged the former governor to substantiate the claims by publishing documents relating to such property.
Emezue said rather than explain to Nigerians how he allegedly acquired his multi-billion naira mansions in Potomac which is on sale, Houston, Miami, Atlanta, and the acquisition of Slok airlines, banks and other businesses that are barely paying staff salaries, while in office, Kalu was busy playing to the gallery with his deceitful Igbo Presidency agenda in 2015.
