Immediate past governor of Ebonyi state, Martin
Elechi and his successor, Dave Umahi, are
currently at loggerheads after the former
governor rejected a N29 million car gift from the
current governor.
The state government had recently purchased
four SUVs at N29 million each for 3 former
governors of the state namely Sam Egwu,
Ogbonnaya Onu and Martin Elechi and also
former Senate President Anyim Pius Anyim.
According to a letter sent to the recipients, the
car gift is in recognition of the contributions of
the former leaders in the development of their
state. However the immediate past governor of
the state, Elechi returned his own car.
In a letter he sent to the state governor, Elechi
said he does not understand the rationale
behind the gift. According to him, the same
government that has approached EFCC to
investigate him and two of his children over
allegations of corruption, cannot be offering him
a gift.
“As if the bad verdict on projects is not
enough, there is the saga of malicious
and false petitions against me and two of
my children to the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)…
This is courtesy of Your Excellency’s
ingenuity with your team players,” he
Umahi has however denied asking the EFCC to
go after Elechi and his sons. Speaking during an
agricultural summit organized by the Christian
Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Abakaliki
yesterday June 30th, Umahi said
“This administration never wrote anything
to EFCC. I speak to you in the name of
God I serve. I told EFCC leave this man
because of his age. If you find him
wanting in terms of money, tell me I will
be paying small small until I finish paying
it. I said that in the name of he that
brought us to leadership but not for his
sons. His children will answer to
whatever thing they committed” he said
