Ikpeazu Sacks Aides, Orders Termination Of Revenue Contracts

Listen to article
The Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu has confirmed the termination of the appointment of all political appointees, including his Special Advisers, Senior Special Assistants, Special Assistants, and others.
The governor has also ordered the chairmen of local government areas in the state to terminate any revenue contract its time lag went beyond December 2022.
This was confirmed by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Chris Ezem, in a statement on Thursday disclosed that the governor wished them well in their future endeavours.
In another statement by the SSG, Ikpeazu disclosed that information available to Government of Abia State reveals that some chairmen of LGAs have contracted out viable revenue windows in their areas beyond December, 2022.
‘Government strongly frowns at such unpatriotic and unlawful act which is capable of crippling the economy of the local government in the years ahead and occasion unnecessary litigations on successive administration. Government directs all chairmen of LGAs to refrain from engaging revenue collectors beyond 2022 and where such exist, immediate steps should be taken to revoke any revenue agreement exceeding December 2022.  The government further warns all LGA chairmen in the state  to desist from such unlawful act or be prepared to face the full wrath of the law.’

Tenure of the Local Government chairmen who were elected in December, 2020, would elapse in November, 2022.

Meanwhile, Ikpeazu had recently submitted that it is only one person that will be governor of Abia State in 2023, apparently making reference to the glamour by persons from different parts of the state jostling for the position next year.

He said in the process of electing who would be governor of the state, some people may have been wronged, and urged them to forgive.
