Alex Otti, Freezes All Government Accounts, Dissolves Boards
The newly inaugurated Governor of Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti, has issued an order to freeze all accounts belonging to the Abia State Government and its agencies in all banks and financial institutions throughout the state and the country.
This event occurred after Otti, a member of the Labour Party (LP), was sworn in as the Executive Governor of Abia State on May 29, 2023, effectively ending the 24-year rule of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
According to a statement issued by Ferdinand Ekeoma, the Special Adviser to Governor Otti on Media and Publicity, all banks and financial institutions in the country have been ordered to immediately stop honouring any cheque, document, instrument, or directive that does not have explicit approval from or originate from Dr. Otti.
“Governor Otti has also ordered the immediate dissolution of all boards governing state agencies and parastatals in Abia. Consequently, the Chief Executives of these organisations have been ordered to transfer their responsibilities to their successors,” Ekeoma explained.
