A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) and Go River State Senatorial aspirant, Joe Agi, a Senior Recommend of Nigeria (SAN), has referred to Ex-Senate Chief, Senator Victor Ndoma- Egba, Overdue Matthew Mbu and Paul Erokoro, SAN, as ”thieves.”
In a viral video launched all over a consultative assembly with participants of APC in Ishibori, Ogoja native executive space of the State, the Senatorial aspirant accused them of shopping for executive belongings all over the 3rd republic and in addition took a swipe on the former Legal professional Common of the Federation, Sen. Kanu Agabi.
Agi claimed that the 1995 communal conflict between Ishibori and Bekwerra would had been settled if Leader Agabi didn’t flip down his request for agreement. In line with him, “I’ve fought very exhausting for Ogoja other people; no longer as a result of I hate Bekwarra other people. You’re acutely aware of the combat between you and Ugboro other people. Once I noticed the case, I went to my senior brother, Kanu Agabi and stated why no longer attempt to settle those other people; let’s no longer pass to courtroom as a result of from the papers I see, that land belongs to Ishibori however smartly, I’m all the time a peacemaker, they went to courtroom and I gained the case in Top Courtroom, in Attraction and Ideal Courtroom for Ogoja.
“I’ve all the time challenged politicians, whether or not the ones in APC or PDP, or those that reinforce me or no longer, take this commentary, problem me any place. There’s no flesh presser that has contributed to the wealth of this state greater than myself. And I say this as a result of I’ll provide the information and figures.
“As a tender Legal professional, a few of you have been relatively younger; they bought Obudu ranch, they bought robber property in Akamkpa, bought all the ones issues, bought bulldozers and actually they bought bulldozers for N100 at the moment and I stated God forbid. I shaped what’s referred to as Go River Redemption Motion and took federal executive to courtroom. I went to courtroom, made bother, I used to be arrested, detained however I stated they have been stealing the commonwealth of the folk. Nowadays, all the ones estates, I gained, and all returned to Go River State.
“I problem them, they’re all my buddies, I ask them what they’ve finished that I’ve no longer finished however there are issues I’ve finished that they’ve no longer finished. You misinform the folk to elect you and also you pass there to clutter issues up.
“Till MT Mbu died; he was once no longer chatting with me as a result of he introduced anyone to return and purchase the ones issues. Paul Erokoro, Ndoma-Egba have been indicted as a result of they purchased bulldozers for N100. It was once revealed in regulation studies; the data are there. They are saying I indicted them and that I spoiled their names. I didn’t destroy their names, I couldn’t simply know the way; even a tyre of bulldozer must be greater than N100. That’s why I’m conceited to them to mention glance, you’re all thieves,” he said.
When DAILY POST contacted the ex-Senate Chief, Victor Ndoma-Egba (SAN) by means of telephone on Friday, Ndoma-Egba regretted the motion of the aspirant, pronouncing that the person has claimed he has launched some other video retracting his first remark.
“Once I noticed the video, I despatched him a textual content that I used to be gazing your video. First, It’s not that i am contesting elections in opposition to him. It’s not that i am from the North, how do I are available in. Secondly, even within the correction or retraction he made, he stated that I used to be a Commissioner, I wasn’t a Commissioner all over that point, I had left place of job as a Commissioner when the ones estates have been privatized
“Thirdly, I had by no means owned a bulldozer. I had by no means purchased a bulldozer. I had by no means any want for bulldozer. I believe it simply insanity on his phase, or desperation. I don’t perceive what precipitated him to try this, as a result of #1, the information are flawed, I by no means purchased any bulldozer, sure I used to be concerned within the privatization workout.
“As a legal professional, my regulation company was once retained to highest the settlement between executive and the hire. I used to be professionally engaged to try this, that was once my simplest reference to it, executive negotiated the phrases with rentals, and I used to be invited to return and highest the settlement, be sure stamp tasks have been paid and that was once all.
“I don’t know the way my title got here in. I don’t know the way denigrating my title goes to lend a hand his elections. It’s not simplest me that he denigrated in that video, he denigrated M. T. Mbu, he denigrated Senator Kanu Agabi, then Paul Erokoro.
“How did we come into his marketing campaign? M. T. Mbu is from the Boki, he isn’t concerned within the election. He stated he fought executive, there’s no one who has fought executive greater than Victor Ndoma in Go River when I used to be Chairman of Nigeria Bar Affiliation, we fought till we got rid of Kefas, the then Army Administrator.
“So, I don’t know, he made a 2d video and I don’t perceive his marketing campaign, Edem, He went to Ogoja, he informed Ogoja other people how he fought for them in opposition to Bekwara, in the meantime, Bekwara is a part of the constituency he’s going to get a vote. To me, I simply concept that the entire thing is simply too idiotic for me to reaction to.
“In case you Google my title, no one has ever related my title with fraud however Google his personal title, each and every Pass judgement on that has been sanctioned in Nigeria, Joe’s title is point out.”
