Listen to article

Contrary to media reports, Governor Alex Otti of Abia State has rejected allegations of filing a lawsuit against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the Federal Government.

The Governor, through his Chief Press Secretary, Kazie Uko, labeled the reports as fake news and urged the public to ignore them.

The statement made available to Vanguard read: ”Abia State Government’s attention has been drawn to a fake report trending on social media, especially X (formerly Twitter), that the Governor had sued the Nigerian Government and President Bola Tinubu at the International Criminal Court (ICC).

“The fake news claims that Governor Otti sued the Federal Republic of Nigeria and President Tinubu for allegedly refusing to grant the request of the Abia Governor to establish a seaport as well as an international airport in Abia.

“Another part of the badly stringed and concocted report alleges that Governor Otti had also placed a ban on businesses operated by Nigerians of northern extraction resident in Abia State, until the approval for the establishment of the said seaport and international airport is granted.

“There is absolutely no truth in this wickedly contrived fable. We are still on the drawing board on the proposed seaport while the Federal Government provided for an airstrip in Abia in the current budget, for which we are grateful.

The statement advises the general public to disregard the fake report, consider it as worthless, and dispose of it, as it is believed to be fabricated by idle troublemakers.
