Abia State government has alleged that a priest of the Anglican Diocese of Aba is attacking it for rejecting three requests he brought to Governor Alex Otti.
The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to Otti, Ferdinand Ekeoma, made the allegation while reacting to a recent communique issued by the Aba Diocese of the Anglican Church, during the 3rd Session of its 17th Synod.
The Aba Anglican Diocese had in its communique, condemned the Otti administration for recently sacking civil servants employed by his predecessor, Okezie Ikpeazu.
But responding to the communique, Otti’s media adviser, Ekeoma, said some paragraphs in the message were designed to mislead the public.
He alleged that one of the signatories to the communique was executing a personal vendetta against Otti for not excluding the priest’s daughter from the names of civil servants that were recently disengaged, adding that the priest had before the Synod, also brought two other proposals to the governor which were all turned down.
