He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the motive was to punish Governor Samuel Ortom and Governor Okezie Ikpeazu for standing with him to demand the resignation of the National Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, Iyorchia Ayu.
He added that every other state got money from CBN, except Abia and Benue, just forselfish reasons.
His words, “I will tell you very soon, how money that was supposed to come to Abia State for my friend to use to develop Abia State was stopped recently by those who think they own this country, by those who think Ikpeazu did not support them.”
“Because Ikpeazu supported me, they went and stopped Abia state from getting the money they are supposed to get to develop Ariara market.”
“Okezie Ikpeazu is just governor of Abia State. He is not the owner of Abia State He is just a symbol of Abia State. Anybody who fights Abia State, you’re not fighting Okezie, you are fighting the people of Abia.”
“I will tell all of you, how Abia and Benue States were denied of their money that every state had gotten from the Central Bank of Nigeria.”
“I got it (CBN loan). And anybody who dare to stop my money, they know, I will not take it from them. You can see how people are wicked, they are not in office yet, but they are fighting people, stopping states money.”
“Even as we have criticized President Muhammadu Buhari, he has never stopped our money any day, never.”
“Let me tell all of you here, let me use the opportunity and Nigerians will hear. I never told him I will say this.”
“Why would some people think some of us are not Nigerians, some people think some of us are slaves. We would never be slaves. I will never be a slave to anybody.”
