Ezzas In Diaspora React To The Purported Communique Issued By Ezza Ezekuna Traditional Rulers Against The Former Secretary To Ebonyi State Government, Prof Bernard Ifeanyi Odoh Dated 3rd June 2020. By Augustine C.
Our attention has been drawn to the recent communique published by the Ezza Ezekuna Traditional Rulers, reprimanding our illustrious son Prof Bernard ODOH with regard to the trending issues arising from the #2bilion CBN Agric loan
Scheme fraud by Ebonyi State Government.
Recall that Prof Bernard ODOH recently petitioned EFCC to investigate the alleged fraud not excand we are hopeful that EFCC is already on top of the matter.
We sincerely wish to acknowledge the apologies from some of the Royal fathers who have already confessed that they were compelled to write the purported communique against Prof Odoh by the State Government.
We equally sympathize with them on their precarious situation in which their positions as Traditional Rulers and entitlements are threatened hence their communique.
In their confession, one of them who pleaded anonymity reliably informed us that the Government of Ebonyi State threatened to withdraw their staff of office, allowances and the SUV cars allotted to them, should they fail to raise their voices against their illustrious son Prof Ben ODOH.
Having gone through the pathetic situation our Royal fathers found themselves, we wish to state as follows :
- That Prof Bernard ODOH has never been found wanting while discharging his official duties in and out of Government, or in any other assignment given to him by his people. His track records speak volume and we are very proud him, having distinguished himself as a true son of Ezekuna in all ramifications.
2.That We are happy that EFCC and other relevant Govt. Agencies are already investigating the fraudulent disbursement of the #2bilion CBN Agric Loan Scheme in Ebonyi State.
- That the Royal fathers having violated the fundamental Rights of our illustrious son, Prof Bernard ODOH which was both traditionally and legally wrong should as a matter of urgency retract the purported communique and apologize to the good people of Ezza Ezekuna in order to free themselves from the raging wrath of God and that of our great ancestors.
Finally, we wish to appeal to Ebonyi State Council Of Traditional Rulers to advise their members to desist from partizan politics as Royal fathers, in their own interest.
