Ohanaeze urges restraint as controversy surrounds the Abia judicial probe panel

Posted by

Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the secretary general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide, made a plea for peace on Thursday in regards to the recent inauguration of a judicial investigation panel by Governor Alex Otti in Abia State.

According to 460play, Otti established a five-member judicial panel of inquiry in June with the goal of recovering properties and public cash that were allegedly embezzled by former political appointees and aides who worked for the 2015–2023 administration of ex-Governor Okezie Ikpeazu.

In a statement on Thursday, Isiguzoro expressed worry over the controversies sparked by the governor’s conduct and urged the rival political parties and their supporters to avoid political mudslinging and finger-pointing.

He emphasized that such activities would jeopardize the state’s peace and security.

Isiguzoro warned against insults and assaulting the integrity of both the current governor, Governor Otti, and the outgoing governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, even if he did not object to the governor’s creation of the judicial investigative panel to recover allegedly misused assets and cash.

He said: “It is unnecessary and uncalled for for these flames of discord between these Abia leaders to continue to be stoked and fed by their respective followers in an effort to purposefully heat up the state.

The state’s efficient and effective security architecture, put in place in every area of the state by the people and residents of the state and its environs, could be jeopardized if not brought to order and curbed if these unwholesome and uncivilized practices are not stopped.

Isiguzoro encouraged Governor Alex Otti to put an end to his bitterness and vengeance, and he begged the feuding parties to stop trading political jabs. He encouraged the governor to fend off any nefarious individuals who tried to entice him into meddling in the work of the state’s judicial panel of investigation on the recovery of stolen government-owned properties and public funds.
