Government Special Annoumcement (Priority High)

Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, wishes to dissociate himself and the State Government from all unauthorized collection of fees and levies of any amount by the Aba Urban Renewal Committee under the guise of “verification of building permit” in Aba.
Aba residents are strongly advised not to pay money to anybody for the said purpose and to report any such approach to security agencies in the state.
Furthermore, the Aba Urban Renewal team is hereby directed to stop forthwith, from collecting or molesting anybody in the name of such unauthorized payment as the State Government will not hesitate to take appropriate measures to deal with any person or group trying to blackmail or tarnish the image of the Governor
