‘Get ready for probe, prosecution’ – Enugu PDP chieftain, Eya tells LG chairmen

A former Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, senatorial aspirant for Enugu North District, Chief Chinedu Eya has told outgoing council chairmen in the state to brace up for probe and possible prosecution.

Eya said going by observed maladministration by some of the council helmsmen, they would not escape probe to be initiated by the Governor of Enugu State, Dr. Peter Mbah.

In a post on his social media pages on Wednesday, Eya said Governor Mbah “will most likely probe the financial irregularities of the outgoing LG chairmen in Enugu State.”

He added that only very prudent LG chairmen whose achievements were verifiable would escape the level of investigation that would be instituted against them after office.

His words: “I am actually not holding the brief for our dear Governor but from what we have seen since he took over the reins of power at Lion Building, the outgoing LG chairmen should get ready for probe and prosecution.

“You know, as someone who is coming from the corporate world, who is so determined to transform the state through industrialization, he would naturally hate wastage and profligacy.

“Meanwhile, whenever you see a leader who has set lofty goals like Governor Mbah, especially when he stated he would raise the state’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), from $4b to $30b, my brother, you must be very careful under such leadership.

“Such a leader would naturally hate frivolous spendings and financial profligacy.

“This is where I see him probing the outgoing LG chairmen,” he explained.

Pmnews.ng reports that with the tenure of the LG chairmen set to elapse, the Enugu State Independent Electoral Commission, ENSIEC, has fixed council polls for February, 24, 2024.
