The Appointment Of LG TC Chairmen In Abia As An Exercise Against Development —Dr Alex Chioma Otti | #NwokeukwuMascot 

 Dr Alex Otti and his Deputy, Engr Ikechukwu Emetu

The Alex Otti team received with disappointment, the news of the appointment of 17 LGA Transition Committee Chairmen and their Deputies by the executive governor of Abia state, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu.

We are disappointed because we are very much aware that the Federal Government, in a bid to halt the siphoning of LGA allocations by governors who hitherto exploited the loophole provided by the State-Local Government Joint Account, took measures aimed at ensuring that allocations for LGAs go straight to their accounts, with a threat to punish those who fail to utilize such funds prudently for the development of their councils.

The Federal Government also made it clear that it would not tolerate the appointment of TC Chairmen to manage the affairs of various LGAs as that would give state governors the opportunity to manipulate the LGAs, and possibly mismanage the LGA funds.

In the light of the aforementioned developments, we are taken aback by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu's decision to resort to this retrogressive political action, and thus state the following:

That having had LGA Chairmen, both elected and appointed whose allocations were controlled by the Ikpeazu led government, and whose scorecards were extremely disastrous due to mismanagement of the LGA funds, it would amount to leadership insensitivity for the Okezie Ikpeazu led government to insist on toeing same undemocratic path that harms the general well-being of the people, especially at the grassroots.

 That there are already reports from reliable sources of alleged plot by the government to illegally collaborate with the TC Chairmen and raise their security votes to the tune of 20Million, with the alleged intent of collecting same back from the Chairmen through the back door for purposes of diversion. This plot bears same government's notorious trademark of financial malfeasance that has crippled the LGA system nay Abia state as a whole.

We humbly request Abia lawmakers both at the National and State Assembly to lend their voices and demand that LGA election be held immediately in Abia as that is one of the ways to prove that they are concerned representatives of the people.

Finally, we call on the federal government and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to expedite action and ensure that LGA election is held in Abia urgently in the interest of the suffering citizens, while we appeal to the Ikpeazu led government to disappoint its critics for once by showing willingness in turning things around in the councils by partnering with FG and INEC to conduct LGA election quickly.
