Uzodimma denies budgeting N10bn for Abba Kyari’s release


The Imo state Government on Tuesday denied the news making the rounds that the state governor, Hope Uzodiinma, was budgeting the sum of N10bn for the release of embattled suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari.

The state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, told journalists in Owerri, the state capital that there was no truth in the news.

According to Emelumba, the news was a “lame, incoherent and illogical propaganda concocted by the lucifer-infested social media outfit of a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party and former governor of the state to shoot down the popularity of the Governor.”

The Commissioner, who refused to name anybody as being behind the fake news, said, “The former Governor who is smarting from the backlash of his saboteur comments against Ndigbo wants to divert attention from his irredeemably damaged image with the fake Abba Kyari story.”

Emelumba said that the fake news was reminiscent of a story planted by the PDP people that Uzodimma wanted to rename Imo state University after the late Chief of staff to the president, Abba Kyari.

The commissioner said Uzodimma, whose administration was a product of the rule of law, could not have declared Abba Kyari innocent of the charges against him when that job belongs exclusively to the judiciary.

He said, “It is also ridiculous to impute that the governor was budgeting N10b for the release of Abba Kyari when everyone knows how prudent and accountable His Excellency is with the resources of the state.”
