Abia State Governor, Alex Otti has vowed to recover all government funds and property in the hands of alleged corrupt persons in the State.
This is even as he has assured that his administration would disconnect the mouths of more looters of public funds and property from the ‘feeding bottle’ of the State.
Otti made the vow in Umuahia during a thanksgiving service of the Deputy Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Hon. Austin Okezie Meregini, held at St. Ann’s Catholic Church.
He explained that various changes he had made so far in the State’s civil service and the dissolution of various Boards in the State were geared towards rebuilding Abia, and vowed that every stolen public fund and property would be recovered through the recently inaugurated Panel of Inquiry.
“It is also not uncommon for you to be hearing people wailing and crying; that is expected because for the past 24 years, some people had put their mouths on the feeding bottle and since we came we removed their mouths.
