The Commissioner of Trade and Investment in Abia State and Hon Cosmos Ndukwe, has asked the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Chinedum Orji, to tender an apology to Abians.
He said the Speaker should apologize to eminent individuals that served and stood with former Governor Theodore Orji in the state, for labeling them as “political jobbers”.
Ndukwe served as Chief of Staff to former Governor Theodore Orji, the father of the Abia Speaker, Chinedum.
We recall that the Speaker and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Rt. Hon. Chinedum Orji, had in his reaction,
described party chieftains, calling for his resignation over recent visit and reconciliation to Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, the leader of the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, in Abia State, as “political jobbers”.
Orji, in a press release, by his Chief Press Secretary, Jude Chijioke Ndukwe, and made available in Umuahia, last Friday, asserted that he does not owe anyone explanation whatsoever, except Governor Okezie Ikpeazu and his colleagues in the House.
“Mr Speaker does not owe anyone of them any explanation whatsoever, except to the Executive Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, and his colleagues in the House.
He will therefore keep ignoring the rants of these political jobbers,” he had said.
