Read the post made by ALGON chairman Michael Ibe over threat to his life…
Threat to Life and Office
It has come to my knowledge that some unscrupulous persons have decided to continue to tow the illegitimate path despite calls to quit. It remains unfortunate that some persons have decided not to rest until Local Governments in Abia become a laughing stock.
1.) Recall that I was invited to the Department of State Service, DSS, a week ago for questioning on a security fund earmarked for an event that I wasn’t privy to. On return from the invite, I issued a statement informing the general public the reason for the invite and warned those behind it to leave my name or office out of unscrupulous activities. These same elements have continued undeterred and have now considered threat as a new way of silencing me.
As I write, my houses both in Aba and the village are under close monitoring while i issue this statement from an undisclosed location. This however, poses a serious threat to my entire family.
- ) The same people have focused on ensuring that Local Government Chairmen not loyal to their cabal will not succeed including the state ALGON Chairman and they go about bragging and issuing unnecessary threats.
These same persons ensured I was illegally removed as Abia State ALGON Chairman sometime ago without recourse to the constitution. Their plot didn’t see the light of day and they have continued in their plans. Now, they are threatening fire and brimstone because I queried why the purchase of vehicles for Local Government Chairmen and Deputies should come from them in a democratic setting like ours.
Will they also defend these actions when the chips are down?
These reasons stated above which I have over times queried have led to threats on my life and office and I wish to let the general public, security agencies and Abians know.
May I also remind them that as constitutionally elected Chairmen, the Local Government as an independent arm of government is expected to manage its resources without undue interference.
