An Aba-based businessman, Mr. Ifeanyi Onyeagba, has applauded the Abia State House of Assembly for rejecting Barr. Eze Chikamnayo as Transition Committee chairman nominee.
Igbere TV had reported that the Abia State House of Assembly, on Tuesday, rejected the nomination of Chikamnayo as chairman of Umuneochi local government council.
This followed a weighty petition against the transition council chairman nominee by Onyeagba, where he accused him of fraud running into millions.
In a letter addressed to the Abia Assembly, Onyeagba accused Chikamnayo of defrauding him, saying he would cause mayhem to the Council if confirmed.
He had copied the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Commissioner Of Police, Abia State and the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), Abia State in the petition.
The petition entitled, “Obtaining By False Pretence By A Man Of Questionable Character In Re: Mr. Eze Chikamnayo” reads;
“I write to notify you that Mr. Eze Chikamnayo whose name has been submitted to the Abia State House of Assembly to be confirmed as a transition Chairman of one of the Local Governments in Abia State, will cause mayhem to the Local Government as Mr. Eze Chikamnayo is a man of questionable character.
“Mr. Eze Chikamnayo defrauded me the sum of N1,200.000.00 (one million, two hundred thousand naira) on the pretext of buying musical equipment which I supplied to him.
“And after Mr. Eze Chikamnayo gave me cheques from First City Monument Bank with Cheques NOS:
(1) 120 18525 dated 21/6/2015
(2) 120 18522 dated 5/5/2015
(3) 120 18523 dated 21/5/2015
(4) 120 18526 dated 7/7/2015
“That Mr. Eze Chikamnayo knew that was no money in his account at the times of giving me the cheques, but told me to go and cash cheques, exhibiting his fraudulent intents.
“That the cheques were not cleared and all efforts made for Mr. Eze Chikamnayo to pay me remained abortive, grooving in his normal character that I have been defrauded hence should not disturb him again.
“It is my candid position that a person in the character of Mr. Eze Chikamnayo will be a clog to good governance in Abia State, especially now that the executive Governor of Abia State is curbing the state of corrupt political office holders to ensure that the dignity of Abia State is restored.
“It is my fervent position for you to consider this petition in the interest of all Abians.”
