ORJI UZOR KALU MISMANAGED ABIA; SAYS POLITIAL OFFICE HOLDERS WHO SERVED UNDER HIM

PRESS RELEASE

In a well attended meeting of Forum of Abia State Political Office Holders; 1999 – 2007, held at Umuahia today; Monday 8th September, 2014, the Forum after exhaustive deliberations on developments in Abia State in relation to the false publications serialised by the Sun Newspapers at the instance of Chief Orji Uzor Kalu and his cohorts came up with the following resolutions:

1. The Forum hereby observes with dismay and strongly condemns the dubious attempt by the former governor of Abia State, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu to mislead unsuspecting Nigerians  and the public by a revisionist scheme aimed at turning the truth upside down through publication of falsehood for selfish reasons. 
2. The false publications appearing in various sponsored articles especially on the pages of Orji Uzor Kalu’s Sun Newspaper is an unveiled affront on the sensibilities, integrity and collective psyche of peace loving Abians who today are enjoying an unprecendented era of good leadership since the exit of Orji Uzor Kalu. 
3. We condemn, reject and abhor in its entirety the desire of Orji Uzor Kalu to disparage the achievements of Governor T. A. Orji out of malice, envy, wicknedness and bitterness. 
4. As living witnesses and public officials who together with our present Governor served our State during the inglorious reign of terror under Orji Uzor Kalu, we hate to be insulted and reminded of the despoliation of our common patrimony that took place between 1999 and 2007 under Orji Uzor Kalu. 
5. That the Forum feels satisfied with the level of security, unity and peace that currently pervade Abia State under the Leadership of Governor T. A. Orji, unlike what the situation was between 1999 and 2007.  
6. That the Forum is impressed with the advances made by the Government of Sir T. A. Orji in the Health Sector of the State Administration, which is a sharp contrast to the era of 1999-2007. 
7. That the Forum applauds the Administration of Governor T. A. Orji for the various infrastructural programmes that have transformed the State Capital, Umuahia which hitherto was merely a glorified village, to physically wearing the status of a state capital. 
8. That the Forum commends the Government of Sir T. A. Orji for its commitment to Agricultural revolution in the State, which among other things, manifested itself in the establishment of Abia Liberation Farms and the disbursement of One Billion Naira to farmers in the State; a feat that is unprecedented in the State                                                                     
9. That the Forum gives kudos to the Government of Sir T. A. Orji for its unparallel determination to address youth empowerment, restiveness and crime via various youth empowerment packages which, among other things, have seen thousands of Abia youths, for the first time in the State, smile home with cars, buses  and even cash. 
10. That the Forum acknowledges the responsiveness of the Administration of Sir T. A. Orji in establishing the Abia State Oil Producing Area Development Commission in response to the plight of the people of Oil Producing Communities of the State who the previous administration refused to grant their request for such establishment. 
11. That the Forum is highly excited with the administration of Governor T. A. Orji for relocating Abia State to Nigeria’s Mainstream politics quite unlike what it was between 1999 and 2007 when the State was declared a pariah state due to unwarranted antagonism and confrontationist approach of the state government. 
12. That the Forum appreciates the cordial bilateral relationship that has existed between the Executive and Legislative Arm of Government since 2007 till date, which has ensured peace and development of the state unlike the belligerent posture of the Executive Arm between 1999 and 2007 which left the state in chaos and total disaster. 
13. That the Forum is happy that, unlike what was the practice between 1999 and 2007, no political appointee or any person in the state has been taken to any juju shrine for a fetish oath-taking by the present administration in the State.
14. That the Forum commends the Peoples Democratic Party and Governor T. A. Orji for their wisdom in insisting that, in adherence to equity and fairness, the next Governor  of God’s Own State should be of Abia-South extraction and 
15. That the Forum of Abia Political Office Holders; 1999-2007, do commend the good people of Abia State for their support to Governor T. A. Orji (Ochendo Global)’s administration and their resolve not to be distracted by the antics of the immediate past governor of the State; Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, whose administration was characterised by deceit and only succeeded in pauperising Abians and leaving them politically and psychologically devastated.

GOV AMAECHI ABANDONS STUDENTS HE SENT TO FOREIGN UNIVERSITIES TO ‘DIE’

Amaechi dance of political death

Unless the Federal Government intervenes, Rivers State Governor will be rendering some indigenes educationally useless for years for an action that is no fault of theirs.

Governor Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi had through the Rivers State Sustainable Development Agency (RSSDA) sent some students to the United Kingdom to study medical and engineering courses on scholarship but halfway into the program, sources have revealed to us that the State government have ran out of cash to continue to pay for their school fees, despite all the World Bank loans collected for phony projects in the State.
The governor without any good reason has decided to withdraw their scholarship and still owe the various UK universities backlog of money. A source confided in us that a particular student got admission into the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) to study medicine/surgery but was among those sent to UK on scholarship. When he got there, he was admitted to study aeronautical engineering at the University of Leicester after undergoing a pre-degree programme. We gathered that instead of the normal five years for reading the course, he will study it for three years with the pre degree inclusive.
Further investigations carried out by us revealed that the State government never sponsored the engineers to a full time degree but a diploma, meanwhile the money signed for by the state according to our sources within the government reflects that they will be University graduates of UK engineering.
Since their departure from Nigeria, the Rivers State government have abandoned them to their fate with many of them already thrown out of their landlord houses and doing nasty jobs to survive. They are yet to be paid their allowances for four months’ a perfect repetition of what happened in 2013
Meanwhile the governor has directed that they return back home and threatened to abandon any student who flouts the order. This is after he has directed the State Ministry of Education to stop sending any money to the UK universities, stated our source in the ministry. 
According to sources who spoke to us, the governor has played a fast one on indigenes by stealing billions from the treasury through the scholarship project without any of the students coming back home as super engineers and medical workers that he told the world they will be. The source disclosed that the money stolen from the program is part of what he has successfully used in fighting the media war against the Federal Government.
Emails sent to the various universities in the UK to confirm some bothering issues were yet to be replied as at press time.
