ENUGU APC URGES GOV. UGWUANYI TO PROBE CHIME’S ADMINISTRATION

Rt. Hon. Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Enugu State Governor
The best-selling and most sought after online business and political news and articles publishers, Tectono Business Review, gathered that the Enugu State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged the state governor, Rt. Hon. Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, to probe his predecessor, Barrister Sullivan Chime.

The Publicity Secretary of the Enugu Chapter of APC, Mrs. Kate Ofor, while examining Chief Ugwuanyi’s first 100 days in office, advised the governor to join President Muhammadu Buhari in fighting corruption by probing Barrister Chime’s administration. According to Mrs. Offor, Chief Ugwuanyi should not overlook the corruption allegations against Chime just because he (Chime) endorsed him as his successor.

In her own words: “Governor Ugwuanyi has turned a blind eye to the anomalies of the past government because of the obnoxious impression that Sullivan Chime put him in power. It is expected that Ugwuanyi should join the anti-corruption crusade of the Federal Government and correct the abnormalities of the past government. In fact, Ugwuanyi’s administration is yet to begin work. The government of Governor Ugwuanyi is not yet organised.

“The governor spent the first half of his 100 days in office paying homage to his predecessor whom he believed put him in power which is against the principle of democracy, which is about the electorate voting their choice into power. Although 100 days are not sufficient to assess the success or failure of any government, it is long enough for people to understand the man who is at the head of the government. The body language of the governor has not indicated readiness to move the state forward.”

Yes, even the oldest woman in the village knows that both the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), are investigating Barrister Chime owing to several petitions written against him.

Tectono Business Review, in the past, reported that one of the petitioners, Barrister Ray Nnaji, also went to court to compel the EFCC to investigate Chime and accused him of misappropriation, forgery and criminal conversion of public property, during his tenure in office between 2007 and 2015.

We also reported that some of Barrister Chime’s erstwhile aides, especially his mistress and former Chief of Staff, Mrs. Ifeoma Nwobodo, and a former Managing Director of the Enugu State Housing Development Corporation, Chief Ifeanyi Asogwa, were quizzed by the EFCC.
