I will probe ex-governor Elechi’s eight-year tenure, says Umahi

Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has
disclosed plan to probe the tenure of his
predecessor, Martin Elechi.Umahi, who spoke
in Abakaliki, the state capital, said the
Economic and Financial Crimes Commission
(EFCC) would be intimated to commence the

Accusing the former governor of financial
recklessness, he threatened to publish the
findings of the commission in the national
newspapers.Umahi was the deputy to Elechi
for four years, before they parted ways in the
build up to the 2015 general elections, after a
disagreement over a successor.

The former governor, who had defected to the
All Progressives Congress (APC), allegedly
petitioned the EFCC to probe Umahi’s
activities.Elechi had asked the commission to
probe the governorís activities, especially the
$150million loan being sought by the
government for the construction of over
198km roads in eight of the 13 local council
areas of the state.

Umahi said he had run out of his patience with
the ex-governor, adding: “I have decided to
probe Elechiís eight yearsí administration and I
will publish the findings on the pages of
newspapers. I have had enough of his
showmanship, even though he has committed
unpardonable financial fraud in the state.”

He said he would also expect the EFCC to
probe every bit of the petition that Elechi had
written against him.Elechi did not pay pension
and severance allowances while in government,
but this government is paying him his
pensions, which he doesnít deserve to receive,î
he said.
