Alex Otti Vows To Go After Ikpeazu Over Alleged Looted Airport Project

by Victor Ndubuisi

The governor of Abia State, Alex Otti, has instructed Okezie Ikpeazu, the head of the state’s recent government, to prepare to refund money that has been embezzled, including monies allocated for the airport project.

In response to the findings of the forensic audit of the state’s finances, Otti declared that his government is not engaged in conflict with anyone and is merely seeking to retrieve embezzled money in an effort to uphold good governance.

During a solidarity visit by friends and loyalists of Rowland Chinwendu, the member representing Isiala Ngwa South State Constituency, the governor delivered a speech in Nvosi.

He emphasised that the advancement and development of Abia State is what he desires, and that the project funds have to be reimbursed because the airport was not completed.


Otti expressed his shock at the remarks made against him in the media by some individuals as a result of his revelation of the forensic audit report’s conclusions.

The governor regarded Chinwendu and his allies’ presence as a sign of good things to come.

“I established a forensic audit of our accounts as soon as I was sworn in and the report turns out that a lot of money was looted, stolen brazenly and part of the ones I mentioned was the N10 billion Abia Airport Project.

“They started insulting me. If you follow what is happening in the media, you would know that what I said is true.

“We are looking for our money. If we are not able to find the airport, they would have to refund us our money.

“We are not pursuing anybody, they should refund the money they stole, let’s use it to work for our people.


“Our place must develop. We will continue to build roads, we will continue to clean up the environment, we will continue to create jobs.”

Chinwendu, the representative for the Isiala Ngwa South State Constituency, stated in his address that his people sent him to the House to speak on their behalf.

He emphasised that, given the governor is from the same LGA, he cannot afford to be perceived as being against the governor.
