No ten­sion in Abia - Gov

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Li­nus Ef­fiong, Umuahia

The Se­nior Spe­cial As­sis­tant on Me­dia to Abia State gover­nor, Mr Ugochukwu Emezue, said there was no po­lit­i­cal ten­sion in the state as a re­sult of judg­ments passed by elec­tion pe­ti­tion tri­bunals.

He said that the main op­po­si­tion party, APGA was try­ing to cre­ate the im­pres­sion that there was ten­sion in the state.

“Abia State is a very peace­ful state and will re­main same, de­spite fruit­less ef­forts by some op­po­si­tion politi­cians to fo­ment trou­ble,” he said.

He noted that tri­bunals have lived up to ex­pec­ta­tions in at­tend­ing to var­i­ous pe­ti­tions and dis­pens­ing them dis­pas­sion­ately.

“There­fore, the claim by the APGA that the chair­man and mem­bers of the tri­bunal in the state were com­pro­mised and in­duced mon­e­tar­ily to di­vert jus­tice is un­called for,” he said.
