|N22b Naira Paris Club Refund: We Know Our Legislative Ambits.. by chuksahamefule: 11:57pm On Jul 07|
The Abia State House of Assembly as a responsible legislature and in keeping with our constitutionally assigned mandate will not be cowed into abandoning our responsibility by anyone or group of persons not even the APC as a political party.
Abia State House of Assembly is an active and very responsible legislature, peopled by men of high integrity who have been discharging their legislative duties professionally without blemish.
We, hereby state, without equivocation that the Abia State Assembly is very competent and active and knows our legislative ambits under the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria.
We, therefore warn the APC in Abia and its actors that no amount of intimidation will stop the house or the committee from continuing to carry out its right and proper legislative duties.
We are aware of the weight of the corruption allegation against the state government by the former commissioner of finance Mr Obinna Oriaku, where-in he named the Honourable speaker Rt. Hon. Chinedum Orji, as an interested party.
We also want to inform the APC that the Abia House Of Assembly has received a petition over the management of the N22 billion Paris Club refund against the former Commissioner for Finance, Mr Obinna Oriaku.
As a responsible house, we are duty-bound to investigate such weighty allegations and in the spirit of fairness the speaker had recused himself and set up an unbiased committee made up of majorly members of other political parties in order to guarantee fair hearing, so what actually is Mr Oriaku and APC afraid of?
We wonder why Abia APC will take it upon themselves as a political party to stop the house from investigating an alleged corruption except in a case of gross insincerity or simply playing politics with the emotions of Abians and their constituents.
Let it be noted that no one can dictate to this honourable house its constitutional role and this house will no longer tolerate or respond to further distractions by anyone on this matter.
Rt Hon ifeanyi UCHENDU
Spokesman Abia 7th Assembly
